Clerkship Program

Every year, we offers clerkships to give you an intensive experience of our culture and the kind of work we do. You’ll spend time in two departments, where you’ll work with a supervising partner, a lawyer and a buddy who’ll get you involved in real work. You’ll also attend workshops and department training, as well as get a chance to take part in team social events.

The work undertaken by clerks is varied and depends on the team you are in. Tasks include case law research, drafting legal expertise updates, note-taking during meetings and contract review. You could also be involved in attending court, drafting advice to clients. You can also attend a one week client secondment or accompany a lawyer to a pro bono clinic.
