Legal Placement in China and International Law Firms
CityU School of Law is the first law school in Hong Kong to incorporate a credit-bearing legal placement course into the curriculum of the LLB programme. Introduced in June 2007, the course provides students with an opportunity to have legal placement in China or Hong Kong during the summer term.
During the six-week China legal placement programme, our students attend classes at Renmin University of China to study the Chinese legal system. They also have the privilege of visiting many legal and judicial institutions, and even gain the uncommon experience of working at the People’s Court in various provinces of China.
Apart from Mainland legal placement opportunities, our students can opt for legal placements in local international law firms for a period of up to 4 weeks.
CityU School of Law announces the application details between January and March each year.
