The Hong Kong Office offers a four-week internship programme for law students in their penultimate year of law school (with preference usually given to applicants seeking to start as trainee solicitors in Hong Kong). Our interns undertake real work for real clients and derive a realistic picture of what it is like to be a Jones Day lawyer. Interns work with paralegals, associates, and partners on a wide variety of tasks from conducting legal research, drafting simple documents, attending court, and learning about the mechanics of closing a deal. As in our training programme, we do not "seat" interns in one specific practice and we encourage them to take on assignments from any practice.
We accept students throughout the year but most students join the internship programme in the Hong Kong summer (June to August). If you are interested in participating in our internship programme, please submit your CV, academic transcript and covering letter at least four months before your intended commencement date.
