Our Sydney Summer Clerk Program runs for 9 weeks, consisting of two four-week rotations across the firm's practice areas. During both rotations each clerk is assigned a supervising partner, mentor and buddy to assist with on-the-job training. Participating in our customised in-house training will build your confidence and help you understand the mechanics of legal practice.
While your main focus will be corporate work, everyone has the opportunity to assist on pro bono matters, innovation projects and participate in firm-wide activities. As you progress through your rotations you will develop invaluable skills and knowledge and gain first-hand experience of our various practice groups. You'll have the chance to jump right in and immerse yourself in a leading corporate law practice. And we'll encourage you to contribute ideas and your own fresh perspective.
The Sydney program is open to students in their penultimate or final year of study. We value diversity and individuality, so we don't just look for strong academic results. We're looking for candidates who are interesting people, can clearly demonstrate their ambition, creativity, entrepreneurial spirit and ability to collaborate.
'I really felt like I was part of the team. The lawyers kept me involved, inviting me to team meetings and client calls and always copying me into emails. They were active in thinking of work for me to assist with, which meant that I was always busy.'
— Harry Meixner, 2019 Summer Clerk, University of Queensland
'Everyone is super friendly, wanting you to be involved and always willing to lend a helping hand when you were confused or lost. That's part of the culture at G+T. Friendly, fun and ambitious, whilst lifting others up with them. There's a real sense of teamwork, collaboration and ambition, which makes it a really exciting and welcoming environment to work in.'
