Jersey: Ogier Welcomes Chinese Student To Its Guernsey Office
Last Updated: 3 February 2016

Ogier recently welcomed Chinese student Franca Huang to its Guernsey office.

Franca joined the firm for a one month internship in association with the East China University of Political Science and Law (ECUPL), Hong Kong law firm Duan & Duan and Guernsey Finance. It's hoped that Ms Huang's visit will be the first of an on-going programme between Guernsey law firms and ECUPL students.

Ogier partner Frances Watson said: "Ogier is delighted to support this Guernsey Finance initiative in providing an opportunity for ECUPL students to better understand the work undertaken here, and how this can be applied in their future law careers in China.

"We have had a full programme for Franca, who worked with our Guernsey lawyers to better understand the work of this busy practice."

Franca, who has just celebrated her 23rd birthday in Guernsey, said: "Since I've been at Ogier I've gained a greater understanding of the activity of a Guernsey law firm and the variety of work undertaken by Guernsey based lawyers."

Although aware of its geographical location, Franca had limited knowledge of Guernsey before she arrived. She said she was enjoying her time in the Island and with the Ogier team, adding that she found Guernsey very peaceful.

"People in the Island and at Ogier are very friendly," she said.

Kate Clouston, Director of International Business Development at Guernsey Finance, said: "We are delighted that this partnership has started off on such a positive note. Our relationship with the East China University of Political Science and Law is an important component of the holistic approach we are taking to develop closer ties with China, not only by increasing business links but also by fostering a shared cultural understanding. We are grateful to Franca for taking part and look forward to welcoming new students in due course."
