Niamh Shanahan (Law Plus) – China Internship Programme 2018
I recently completed a 2 month internship at Dentons Law Firm in Shanghai with CRCC Asia. CRCC Asia are a fantastic agency that arrange internships for young working professionals all around Asia. I was lucky enough to get this opportunity through a scholarship programme which UL’s School of Law runs every year. At Dentons, I worked in their Family Department in Private Client and Wealth Management. Dentons are the second largest manager of Chinese wealth so this gave me great exposure. My duties mainly surrounded researching tax compliance and immigration fraud for our clients who had international interests.
I absolutely loved living in Shanghai and would love to return one day. I found the city very vibrant, with a great ex-pat community. I found it a very affordable city and quite safe. Throughout my internship, CRCC Asia organised weekly cultural and business development classes for us, after work and on the weekends. This is part of their five key learning objectives: Employability, Cultural Agility, Country Knowledge, Sector Specific Knowledge, and Global Connections. Overall, I found working in Shanghai both challenging and enjoyable, professionally and personally. It is undoubtedly a once in a lifetime opportunity that I would recommend to all law students.
