UTS LSS Clayton UTZ Women in Law Panel

Women have a history of being underrepresented at all levels of the legal industry. Although we’ve seen improvements in recent years, we’ve also seen significant shortfalls. It is clear that there is a long way for us to go as a society and industry.

We invite you to hear from female leaders in various fields of law, as they share their experiences as women in the legal profession.

Here, students are able to build their professional network and receive honest advice about a variety of career paths stemming from a law degree.


Summer Clerkship Program

Summer clerkships are paid employment experiences in major commercial law firms. They are held over the summer break for Australian law students in their penultimate year of study. A summer clerkship is the primary method for participating law firms to identify and secure talented students for graduate positions.
