HONG KONG INTERN & TRAINEE PROGRAM
Hong Kong Summer Internship Program
Our Hong Kong summer internship program is a great introduction to what a trainee contract at MoFo would offer you and the best way for you to demonstrate your potential to us. The internship program runs from June to August, and internships generally last for two weeks. Students from Hong Kong and around the world in their penultimate year are particularly encouraged to apply. We also welcome applications from recent graduates.
During your internship, you will be given real work for real clients. Formal and informal social events are arranged for you to meet others in the internship program as well as our partners, associates, and trainees.
By the end of the scheme, you should have a good idea of whether law is the career for you – and whether MoFo is the right place for you.
Hong Kong Trainee Program
From day one, you’ll be surprised by how much direct contact you have with clients. You will feel valued and involved. The hands-on learning we offer will help you understand the legal and commercial context of the advice we give. You will quickly experience the satisfaction of going the extra mile for our clients.
The sheer variety of work you undertake in your training contract will help you decide where your future lies. During your two-year training contract, you will work closely with associates and partners who will encourage you to show initiative and take on responsibility. In addition to on-the-job training, we offer formal training sessions and workshops that will give you the practical and legal knowledge that is necessary to become a fully qualified lawyer. You will be given help to evaluate your strengths and identify your developmental needs – both informally and through formal reviews with your supervisors. Plus, there will be opportunities to become involved in our pro bono activities and community action initiatives. Each trainee may also have the chance to go to our London office for one seat.
