During my time at university I thought ahead about travelling abroad after graduating. I knew I would have completed my studies by September 2014 so I felt that would be the perfect time to embark upon this experience working in China. I wanted the opportunity to learn Mandarin and experience the working and cultural environment of one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
Whilst working in Beijing as a legal intern I have primarily been based in the Trademark department of a leading intellectual property law firm. I have been involved in a number of interesting tasks.
Work-life aside, I have also had the opportunity to visit many of China’s famous landmarks and tourist attractions. From the Summer Palace to The Great Wall of China, I have even had the opportunity to bungee jump for the first-time. Definitely a thrilling experience!
As I approach the end of my time here in Beijing I can safely say it has definitely been a truly amazing experience. I have had the opportunity to meet so many great people, participate in various social and cultural activities and work in one of the most important countries in the global economy.
