How it works

You’ll be invited to one of two interview workshops, taking place in early to mid-September. In addition to your interview with a partner and a senior lawyer, you will have the chance to meet with a range of our people across all of our practice areas. Your workshop will conclude with drinks and canapes with all of the Perth office. The interview workshops are an opportunity for us to get to know you better and for you to learn more about Gilbert + Tobin and our people.
