That's where we come in.

You'll be working under the guidance of some of the sharpest legal minds in Australia, on challenging, complex and high-profile transactions and matters. You'll be mentored by partners and lawyers who are leaders in their fields, in a firm where individuality is embraced and innovation actively encouraged.

With our programs you'll get…

  • mentoring from some of the best lawyers in the country.
  • a buddy who'll give you the inside information. meaningful performance feedback so you know you're on the right track.
  • continuing legal education programs and professional development support so you can become the lawyer you want to be.
  • the chance to participate in our Community Connect and Pro Bono programs and really give back.
  • social and sporting activities, because we know it's not all work and no play.

Aimed at penultimate year law students, our 11-week week program gives you a week-long orientation and two rotations in different practice areas. You'll also get additional training, networking opportunities and be part of our social/sporting activities.
