Jason Xu, Beijing Yue Cheng Law Firm, Winter Vacation 2018

What do you study and where did you go on your PACE International activity?
I study a double degree in law and psychology, and I interned at Yue Cheng Law Firm (北京岳成律事务所) in Beijing, China.

What was your role or project at your host organisation?
I was a paralegal and my responsibilities included taking instructions from lawyers, reviewing and editing contracts, translating and drafting documents, and legal research into overseas jurisdictions such as Singapore and Thailand.

What attracted you to the PACE International program?
I was attracted to the unique experience of working in a commercial law firm in an overseas environment, particularly China as I am very China-centric and would like to work there one day. Yue Cheng Law Firm is also a well-known national firm in China, and getting hands on experience there was very valuable.

What advice would you give a student who is thinking of applying for a PACE International activity?
If you want to apply for Yue Cheng Law Firm, I would highly recommend you know and understand some Chinese as it is a crucial skill that will allow you to gain the most learning experience there. As for applying for a PACE international activity in general, I would recommend to not just focus on the work you’ll be doing, but also make sure you have fun in the country and enjoy your time there as much as you can.

What was the best part of your PACE International experience?
Meeting new people, making new friends, and exploring the host country/city together.
