Law Internships and Work Experience Overseas in China

Law & Human Rights in China - Planning Office

Our Law placements in China are based in the busy, vibrant cities of Shanghai and Hangzhou. In this ever-changing destination there are many new western companies taking advantage of an increasingly open Chinese economy to set up a Chinese division. Most of these firms need legal assistance to satisfy local business requirements and your law project in China will undoubtedly reflect corporate life in this modern, evolving and fast-moving society.

Companies arriving in China need to adapt to the new environment and a different legal system. Day-to-day you'll work alongside English speaking local lawyers, one of whom will also act as your supervisor. Your language abilities and understanding of western culture and law will be interesting and useful to Chinese law firms.

Law Work Experience Opportunities with Projects Abroad

Projects Abroad will find you a placement that fits with your own areas of interest. Volunteers have worked in areas including banking law, mergers and acquisitions, corporate intellectual property, taxation and insolvency. Please let us know of any preferences you may have.

Volunteering on a Law Internship Placement in China

Law & Human Rights in China - Volunteer

To apply for one of our Law in China placements you must have some legal experience. Most of our volunteers are part way through a law course or have completed their studies and are interested in gaining practical work experience in a law firm abroad.

A voluntary placement with a well-respected law firm in Shanghai could be a valuable addition to your CV in this notoriously competitive profession, and might just secure you that lucrative first job once you graduate.

All law volunteers live in shared apartments in the city with other Projects Abroad volunteers.
