Frequently asked questions

When can I apply for the summer clerkship programme?

You can apply for the summer clerkship two years before you’re eligible to start the graduate programme. If you're studying a law degree, this means applying from your penultimate year (year 2 of a three-year degree, or year 3 of a four-year degree).

Where can I complete my summer clerkship programme?

We recruit Summer Clerks into all of our Australian offices.

Can I do a clerkship in one office and apply to another for a graduate position?

You should apply for a clerkship in the office where you would like your graduate position to be based.

Can I apply for the clerkship if I have completed my degree?

Yes, we accept applications from those who have already completed their degree.

What do you look for in applicants applying to the summer clerkship programme?

We are seeking applicants that are considering a career in Law and becoming a future graduate solicitor. We do not expect applicants to have had prior experience in Law. When applying, we'd encourage you to think broadly about your experiences and achievements from your recent-past and ensure these are clearly articulated on your CV.

How many clerkship positions do you offer?

Approximately 35 across our Australian offices.
