Baker McKenzie Hong Kong runs one Winter Clerkship Program in January (the Winter Clerkship). This Program is aimed at Australian based candidates to tie in with their academic vacation period.The Winter Clerkship is a comprehensive four week program 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 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 2021 training contract.
To apply, candidates should be in their penultimate year of 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 early interview opportunity.
As applications will be considered on a rolling basis, early application for early interview is strongly recommended.
Closing date for applications for early interview: 15 April 2018
Closing date for all applications : 31 August 2018
