MCLS Alumni Networking Night
6:30pm, 29 March 2018 | Venue: AER Rooftop Bar
The MCLS welcomed Melbourne JD and MLM students to our annual Alumni Networking Night: a great event for students and alumni to mingle, exchange stories and make friends.
This is an opportunity for law students to mingle with previous committee members, and to learn about how their careers have involved China after law school. If you have an interest in a developing a future career with an element of China law, this is the event for you!
Our alumni are currently working in a variety of fields. Some work at large international law firms, and handle cross-border transactions involving Chinese clients on a regular basis. Others work in boutique Australian law firms, and specialise in large-scale transactions and disputes with Chinese individuals and corporations. Others still have taken their careers overseas, in jurisdictions such as Hong Kong where they work intimately with China (and beyond!).
