“There are so many exciting opportunities to study and work in the Asia Pacific region,” notes Carly Klinkhoff, president of the Asia Pacific Law Association of McGill (APLAM).
Klinkhoff, who studied at Fudan University on exchange as an undergraduate student, spent the summer after her first year working for a law firm in Shanghai. She notes that she is far from the only McGill Law student pursuing these opportunities.

“In the past year, two first-year students took part in a study trip to Taiwan, a second-year student worked for a law firm in Shanghai, and two others went to Singapore and Beijing for semesters abroad,” she says, adding that APLAM also introduced a new internship initiative with a focus on Asia in early 2011.
“We organized a resume collection with the Career Development Office and with Andrew Work, a McGill grad and the Executive Director of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong,” she explains. “We sent them a booklet of CVs of candidates and interested companies contacted the law students directly.”
