Based in Chengdu you’ll visit law firms and various legal departments. During your two weeks, you will get a broad overview of law in China, spanning the entire legal spectrum of commercial and corporate law. You will be responsible for researching case studies, proofreading documents, and making comparisons between foreign and Chinese legal systems.
In addition to the legal experience you will also receive presentations and assignments from various companies, providing you with a greater insight into international business.
