Legal Insight 2017

Legal Insight provides with aspiring lawyers a taste and feel of what law firms are looking for in applicants, and helps them understand what practicing commercial law would be like in one of the fastest growing regions of the world - Hong Kong.

About

Legal Insight is a 5-day programme held in Hong Kong where students interested in pursuing a legal career can participate in an exclusive conversation with the most prestigious law firms in the world. Ranging from leading law firms such Linklaters, Davis Polk and Deacons, to barrister chambers like Des Voeux Chambers, the Asia Careers Society provides endless opportunities for students in networking with trainees, associates and partners.

 

This programme is aimed at incoming second-year students mainly, but is also highly recommended to incoming freshers given its beneficialness.

 

Last year, the week was filled with fruitful panel discussions, informative graduate recruitment talks, as well as constructive skills sessions focusing on speed reading. Students always end the programme not only with a smile, but also with an inspiring ambition.
