Baker & McKenzie Hong Kong winter clerkship 2018

Published 21 March 2017 @ 01:54 PM, by MLS Career Services

Train for a world-class career with Baker & McKenzie Hong Kong winter clerkship 2018.

Baker & McKenzie Hong Kong will run one Winter Clerkship programme in January 2018. This is a comprehensive four week programme and aims to give students the opportunity of experiencing first hand what it is like to work at the Firm. In addition to getting to know the Firm’s culture, vacation clerks will participate in the training programmes available to trainees and junior lawyers, and be exposed to the type of work typically undertaken by them. The clerkship programme is the main pathway into securing a training contract with the Firm, as clerks who perform well during the programme will be selected to join our Hong Kong office as trainee solicitors after they have completed their legal studies and their Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (P.C.L.L.). Participation is therefore mandatory for those seeking a 2020 training contract.

Experiences Required:

To apply, candidates should be in their penultimate year of study of their undergraduate or postgraduate law degree programme, have strong academic results, fluent Chinese language skills (written and spoken) and be firmly committed to establishing a legal career in Hong Kong.

Apply by emailing us your full resume, transcripts and reference letters to

Victorian Women Lawyers and the Women Barristers’ Association (WBA) will launch their tenth annual Law Student Mentoring Program in 2017 .

The Law Student Mentoring Program is a joint initiative run by Victorian Women Lawyers and the Women Barristers’ Association. The program is endorsed by the Honourable Marcia Neave AO and the Honourable Justice Rita Zammit.

Now in its 10th year, the program is a wonderful opportunity for female law students to gain insight into working in the law, develop valuable networks and share ideas with mentors in the legal profession. For mentors, there is the satisfaction that comes from helping to shape the career of a female law student.

VWL invites students and mentors to register their interest in participating in the program.

Students must be VWL members to participate, but Mentors do not. Membership is only $25 for students, and if you sign up in order to register for the program, you will receive a membership until the end of the 2016/2017 membership year AND you will automatically receive membership for the forthcoming 2017/2018 membership year!

Registration is open until Sunday, 26 March 2017.
