  • Akin Gump hires the best and brightest. The key factors we look for are enthusiasm, intellectual curiosity and the ability to demonstrate consistent exceptional academic achievement from a leading university, together with evidence of extracurricular achievements.
  • Prior experience working in the legal sector is also advantageous.
  • Candidates must be able to show initiative, drive, confidence and a self-managing manner and an overall desire to be part of a challenging yet friendly environment. 
  • Candidates must also be able to demonstrate their commitment to a legal career in Hong Kong so we look for those who have undertaken, or are about to start the PCLL and who wish to qualify with the Law Society of Hong Kong.
