Winkler Partners in Taipei, Taiwan is looking for an intern for the summer of 2013 (c. June to August).
You will need to be currently enrolled in law school for us to get work authorization.Also, we regret that Taiwan’s laws currently bar us from considering candidates from the PRC, Hong Kong, or Macau unless they hold citizenship in another jurisdiction.
The basic qualifications include good analytic, research, and writing skills. We will try to pair you with an intern from a Taiwanese law school.
You do not need to know any Chinese although you will be able to do more if you can.
Your duties would include curating social media sites, writing updates on legal topics, and light case work for 15-20 hours per week. The pay is NT$200 per hour (c. US$7, the same as what the Taiwanese intern will receive) and you will have to cover your own travel to and living expenses in Taipei (very roughly, about US$700 per month on a tight student budget).
This position would be ideal for a current law student who would also like to study Chinese over the summer since we are located conveniently close to both National Taiwan University (ICLP) and National Taiwan Normal University (Shida Mandarin Training Center).
Please send a resume, a brief writing sample, and a cover letter explaining your interest in an internship in Taiwan to the attention of Melisa Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org).
