Firms view international secondments as an essential part of trainees’ and young lawyers’ development. As usual, London is a popular secondment destination for trainee solicitors and young lawyers from Hong Kong.
To facilitate trainees and young lawyers on secondment or otherwise working in London for mutual support and community-building, last September, the Young Solicitors’ Group (’YSG’) invited those who were currently in London or were going to London to exchange their contacts.
Around 30 participating members organised numerous events with other members in the group in the past six months. Trainees and young lawyers soaked up the historical sights and discovered other vibrant areas in London together in their free time.
Members who exchanged contacts were also well placed in London to travel to Europe and they did a lot of that at the weekends together. There are plenty of budget airlines and members reached beautiful cities like Oslo, Rome, Paris and Madrid all in a couple of hours.
If you wish to connect with fellow young solicitors and trainees, please keep an eye on activities organised by the YSG!
