Summer/Fall Law Internship in Vietnam

YKVN Lawyers, a widely respected Vietnamese law firm formerly the affiliate of White and Case in Vietnam, is recruiting summer and fall semester interns for both their Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City offices. There are also possibilities for spring semester interns. Candidates should have a basic familiarity and interest in: contracts, finance, corporate law. No Vietnamese language skills required. Interns gain international legal experience, experience first hand the second fastest growing economy in Asia, and work in areas such as contract litigation, securities, corporate and finance law, and international investment. There were 2 JD students last summer and 1 JD student from this past fall who went on the internship. The experience seems to have been a very positive one! If you want to contact one of the previous students for more information, write and ask for the contact information. To apply, submit your resume, a cover letter, and a transcript (unofficial, requested by email through "MyWisc") as soon as possible by attachment to Susan Katcher, Associate Director of the Center, . Alternatively, drop the application materials off at the East Asian Legal Studies Center's office, room 4312, or in its mailbox (near room 5106). Applications will be reviewed by Professor Irish starting in late February 2008 and will continue through the spring semester.
