Legal/Law Internship Abroad in Asia
- China (Shanghai)
- Hong Kong
- Indonesia (Bali, Surabaya)
- Thailand (Bangkok)
Most major law firms in Asia have their own structured 1 month internship program with intake 3 times a year (January, May & August). Beware of the competitiveness of this industry and those practices. Many other international high-school graduates on a gap year, undergraduate students and recent graduates also want to intern abroad in a prestigious law firm, especially in China, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Thanks to our long standing relationships with many firms, longer law internships are also available all year round (summer internships and winter internships).
Lawyers are playing an important role in society through the practice of law, which encompasses a multitude of activities. A legal internship will provide you a strong base and the ability to pursue employment opportunities outside of the legal profession in areas such as politics and business.
Participating in a legal internship typically involves working in an environment where professionalism, responsiveness, creativeness, and teamwork are the key skills.

Sean Skinner (United States, 2010), University of Alabama, Legal internship in ShanghaiPromise Law Firm
I was worried that my internship would consist of shredding and filming papers seeing as I am an undergraduate working at a law firm, but I was pleasantly surprise that Next Step Connections placed me in a law firm that had me doing legal research.
