Our Clerkship Program

The Corrs Summer Clerkship Program is designed for penultimate year students and is a great opportunity for you to experience the people, clients, work and culture that differentiates Corrs from other law firms.

You’ll have the opportunity to work with some of Australia’s leading lawyers on high-profile work for major Australian and international clients across all industries. You’ll soon discover the standards of quality and commitment to clients required to succeed at this level.

You’ll complete three rotations which will give you the opportunity to spend time in three different practice groups where you will be exposed to a broad range of interesting matters. You may also conduct research, review and present documents, as well as attend client meetings, mediations and settlements. The variety is enormous, so it’s the perfect way to discover the firm and the area of law that excites you most. In Sydney, you will also complete a pro-bono project as a clerk cohort which you will present to the client at the end of the summer.

Clerks are also encouraged to 'shadow' partners and lawyers on activities such as meetings with clients, barristers or witnesses; client phone calls; and mediations, settlements and court appearances. The clerkship program promotes a more hands-on approach to developing your knowledge and skills.

Corrs Clerkship Program is our future pipeline for our Graduate Program. For more information visit our graduate page.
