S&C offers a number of exciting opportunities for those who are interested in working in the Hong Kong and Beijing offices, including our Hong Kong & Beijing 2L/3L Program. Launched in June of 2014, our Hong Kong & Beijing 2L/3L Program is designed to attract talented law school students and recent graduates from top tier U.S. law schools who want to join the Firm as associates in one of those offices.
- Rising 2Ls who apply to the program and are accepted will spend 10-12 weeks of their 2L summer in either Hong Kong or Beijing with a view to being considered for an offer to join the Firm as first year associates in one of those offices.
- Rising 3Ls may apply to join the Firm in Hong Kong or Beijing as first year associates.
- Recent graduates and laterals may apply to join the Firm in Hong Kong or Beijing as associates in the appropriate class years.
Our objective is to hire the strongest U.S. law school students and/or graduates who have excellent written and verbal communication skills in both Mandarin and English.
Interested law student applicants can either interview with us on campus through the regular OCI process (please be sure to express your interest in this program to our on-campus interviewers), or may apply directly to our Hong Kong & Beijing 2L/3L Program by sending a resume, law school and undergraduate transcripts, and cover letter to [email protected]. Recent graduates and laterals should apply directly by sending a resume, law school and undergraduate transcripts, and cover letter to legalrecr[email protected].
