When you join Herbert Smith Freehills, you get so much more than a job. You get the chance to gain the skills and experience you’ll need to become a brilliant lawyer. But that doesn’t all take place in the office. Joining us in Hong Kong, you’ll be right in the heart of one of the world’s most exciting cities. 

It’s never too early to start thinking about becoming a brilliant lawyer. Join us during your first year of study and you’ll have a great opportunity to gain the skills you’ll need to successfully apply for a vacation scheme or training contract later on.
Our four week vacation schemes are a great introduction to life at Herbert Smith Freehills. You'll get first-hand experience in a leading global law firm – and we‘ll pay you while you’re with us.
As a trainee, you'll be a valued member of the team straightaway, working alongside some of the world's best lawyers and directly contributing to the success of our clients.
With the rapid growth of the Greater China market, we recognised that having strong local capability to deliver our full range of legal services to Chinese clients is fundamental to meeting the needs of our clients and growing our business in the Asian region.
We are unique in offering an international arbitration internship programme in our Hong Kong office.
