On an ongoing basis we have one or two students working with us to gain experience in the law.
A clerkship generally starts with a short, fixed period of unpaid work experience. If your skills and attitude match our needs at the conclusion of your work experience, we may then offer you a position as a casual paid law clerk. Once again, this is usually for a fixed period of time.
There is no set application date, and we accept applications throughout the year. However, we only take on clerks as and when an opening arises.
If you are interested in becoming a law clerk with us, please send the following to email@example.com:
- A cover letter explaining what areas of the law you are interested in gaining experience in;
- A brief one page CV;
- A sample of your work at Uni, for example, a recent essay or paper; and
- An up-to-date academic transcript.
