Freshfields targets UK students for China traineeships


From The Lawyer

How things change. Not so long ago it was UK firms dredging through Australia’s talent pool for lawyers to cope with the boom in work.

Now, Freshfields is scouring UK universities – well, mainly Oxford and Cambridge, so no elitism there – for bright young things to populate its growing China practice.

Freshfields’ China managing partner Teresa Ko is running three university events to find students to fill the firm’s Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai offices (see story).

Freshfields is looking for people fluent in both Mandarin and English. But on top of that it says it needs “internationally minded” students.

Presumably that means someone who drinks London Pride, Fosters and Tsing Tao.

Anyone looking to go to the events (on the 7 and 8 November) will have the opportunity to meet with Ko and trainees on secondment in Hong Kong to learn more about a career in China.

And probably help prop up the bar.
