JOIN THE TEAM
LEGAL ASSOCIATE PROGRAM
AIIB introduced a Legal Associate Program (LAP) with the objective of developing a pool of inhouse lawyers to cater to the Bank’s legal needs both for private and public sector operations. It is a rotational program which identifies, hires, grows and develops young talents of the highest caliber and with a passion for international development.
The LAP will start with a two-year contract based in Beijing within the Legal Department (LEG), where the Legal Associates (LAs) engage in intensive training (on-the-job and in-classroom settings) on the fundamentals of lawyering at AIIB on development operations.
LAs will contribute to the work program of LEG’s different units while building networks and knowledge across AIIB. They may also join field missions where needed to assist senior lawyers on the frontlines of AIIB operations, learning key aspects of the Bank’s legal operational work, including engagement with AIIB clients.
LAs will receive intensive training on the policies, products and operations of AIIB to ensure they know how to operationalize AIIB solutions to operational challenges, mitigate legal risks in AIIB-financed operations and assist internal clients in preparing quality projects. LAs will also be given the opportunity to attend selected training programs on operational themes organized by the Human Resources Department.
