Legal Internships

Whether you’re interested in criminal law, civil law, or policy, there’s stability and fulfillment in pursuing a career in law. With businesses, organizations, and individuals always requiring legal assistance, as long as laws are being made, the legal field will remain essential and flourishing. Asia, and China, in particular, are rife with international  law firm opportunities.

As the Asia-Pacific region experiences rapid growth both politically and economically, the evolution of the legal market is rapid. In fact, the industry is becoming particularly fluid  in places like China and India. Because of the rate of change in the legal space, lawyers in this region must be quick on their feet, changing practice areas, and moving their offices altogether. The fast-paced nature of the legal field is appealing but also requires flexibility and experience.
