The Taipei Office hires several junior level lawyers each year. Preferred candidates will have at least one or two years of legal experience and an LLM degree.
We welcome Taiwan-qualified lawyers with advanced degrees from universities in Taiwan or abroad. We sometimes have positions for experienced lawyers with advanced degrees from the United States, United Kingdom, or Australia. Occasionally, we hire US JD lawyers who are not qualified in Taiwan, mostly for our cross-border transactional practice. While we do not require English as a first language, because of our "One Firm Worldwide" structure, all of our lawyers must be able to communicate well in English.
New lawyers will attend the New Lawyer Academy, an annual event held in Washington, D.C. Each fall, new lawyers assembled from the Firm's 40 offices around the world to meet and network with each other and learn what it means to be One Firm Worldwide. Our Firm leaders, partners, and associates educate the new lawyers about Jones Day's culture, history, organization, and achievements and lead substantive and interactive training sessions. Every year, our new lawyers take away from the Academy a sense of great pride and excitement about being part of the Firm.
