Internships for foreign students from Belt and Road region in local law firms

East China University of Political Science and Law and 14 local law firms launched a program yesterday to provide internships for foreign students from the Belt and Road region.

East China University of Political Science and Law and 14 local law firms launched a program yesterday to provide internships for foreign students from countries included in the Belt and Road Initiative.

The program was developed to help foreign students learn real practices in China’s legal system, and will benefit students from Belt and Road countries utilizing a Chinese governmental scholarship project initiated in 2014.

The one-year English-taught masters project started with eight students in 2014 and has since attracted more and more applicants, most of whom are professional lawyers, judges, officials and teachers in their home countries.

Currently the program has 35 students, who will be the first to enjoy the internship program.

Mentors from the law firms who are fluent in English and experienced in foreign affairs will help the students in the following six weeks. 

Grigoryan Hayk, from the National Assembly of Armenia, said he was looking forward to the internship after learning about the Chinese legal system and Chinese foreign trade for one semester.

He hopes the practical experience will help lay the groundwork for future cooperation between China and Armenia.
