The internship is for three months and, depending on the successful applicant’s preference, will commence between late November 2019 through February/March 2020. For applicants with greater flexibility, it may be possible to intern at other times of the year, except for July and August.
The successful candidate will be placed at HKIAC’s office in Hong Kong where they will assist the Secretariat in discharging its day-to-day duties. The intern will be assigned to an arbitration counsel who will act as a mentoring supervisor.
Law students and young legal practitioners with an eagerness to learn, an excellent work ethic, and an interest in a career in dispute resolution in Asia are strongly encouraged to apply. Chinese language ability is an advantage but is not required as English is widely used in Hong Kong.
The Foundation is looking to recruit one intern for HKIAC in 2019.
Short-listed applicants, whose applications proceed past the first interview in New Zealand, will be interviewed by an HKIAC representative at the second interview stage of the selection process.
