The Winter Clerkship is a comprehensive four-week program and aims to give students the opportunity of experiencing firsthand 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 programs available to trainees and junior lawyers, and be exposed to the type of work typically undertaken by them.
The clerkship program is the main pathway to securing a training contract with the firm, as clerks who perform well during the program 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.LL).
Participation is therefore strongly recommended for those seeking a 2023 training contract.
To apply, candidates should be in their Penultimate Year or JD (Year 1) study of their (undergraduate or postgraduate) law degree programme; have strong academic results; good Chinese language skills (written and spoken); and intend to practice in Hong Kong after their legal studies.
Please submit your application together with your CV and transcripts asap if you wish to apply and secure an interview opportunity. For questions, email 2021HKWinterClerkship@bakermckenzie.com.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
Closing date for all applications: 7 August 2020
