We encourage you to apply to our clerkship if you are in the penultimate or final year of your law degree.
Clerkship recruitment dates are set by each state’s law society.
Application dates for our offices are listed on the locations and dates page. We most often recruit our graduates from the clerkship program, but from time to time we do go to market for graduate roles. If you are looking specifically for a graduate role, please keep an eye on our website. Sign up to receive updates on opportunities in your city so you don’t miss your chance.
To complete your online application, you are welcome to submit a downloaded version from your university.
Should you be invited to interview, we do request you to bring a certified copy of your academic transcript. We unfortunately will not be able to make copies on the day of your interview so please bring a certified copy that you will be willing to leave with us.
The best way to prepare for the psychometric assessments is to familiarise yourself with the test materials by reviewing the preparation guides. Get a good night’s sleep before the assessment. Find a quiet place with no distractions. Read each question carefully. Work as fast as you can, try not to take too much time over any one question. If you find a question too difficult or are unsure of an answer, indicate your best choice and move on quickly.
