Karel Mahy-Rousseau completed his internship at leading law firm King & Wood Mallesons in Beijing this month.
He did research for legal projects in which Chinese clients aimed at acquiring foreign assets, which included investigating Congolese mining law, Vietnamese wind power regulations and Mexican oil field attribution procedures. He had to master legal terminology to do this work.
The internship clarified his future avenues for Master's programmes in either Public Policy or Law.
