Sydney 2018/19 Clerkship Program

Get a taste for life at our firm and find out if we’re the ones for you. Our summer clerkship programme offers you a real taste of life as a Graduate.

To get the most out of our summer clerkship programme, you should say yes to everything that’s offered and try to find out as much as possible about what it would be like to work here. This is your big opportunity to work out if a career with us is right for you.

The work you'll do

The programme involves doing many of the things our Graduates do, including attending clients meetings and visits to court. You will also enjoy exposure to our deals, culture and practice areas.

There will also be lots of additional activities for you to take advantage of including:

  • key skills training with our learning & development team
  • Q&A sessions with heads of practice and our managing partner
  • talks about practice areas and deals
  • networking and social events.
  • wherever you look, you’ll be throwing yourself into new things, all with the support of your supervisor and your colleagues.

The recruitment process

Once you apply for a summer clerkship your application will be reviewed taking in to account a variety of factors. If you are successful in securing an interview, you will also be invited to an information evening to learn more about our firm.

The summer clerkship programme is the primary source for our national Graduate Academy, which feeds directly into our international opportunities such as the International Rotational programme. Our Sydney summer clerkship programme will run for 10 weeks.
