During the weeks since my last post, I have continued to stay very busy here at Handong International Law School (HILS) in Pohang, South Korea, working on various projects involving research, writing, and editing. The project regarding U.S. COVID-19 restrictions is drawing to a close, and an article based on the research is supposed to be published in the near future. I have also begun research on U.S. mass migration policy, which will be part of a project comparing the mass migration policies of different countries.

Part of my internship work involves contract drafting as part of a team of interns supporting startups and startup accelerators in South Korea and Singapore. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to apply what I learned in Contracts I and II, and the professor I am working with has provided detailed feedback and training on legal practice, including how differences in legal cultures provide opportunities as well as challenges for international legal work. The training experience can be intense, similar, I’m told, to international law firms, and I appreciate that, when finalized, my work will be used by actual clients.

I continue to enjoy and be very enriched by working alongside and spending time with the professors and students at HILS. I am very thankful to take part in Regent’s relationship with our sister law school here in South Korea.
