This position has been filled. Thank you to all the candidates. We will have a similar position opening in the fall for the academic year. This is intended for someone in Taiwan studying Chinese and thinking about law school. We’ll post a formal announcement in July.
Winkler Partners is looking for an intern for the summer of 2012 (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.
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 US$8 per hour (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 and a brief writing sample to the attention of Gladys Kao (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested.
