A Gilbert + Tobin clerkship is both positive and challenging. You'll work directly with partners and lawyers who will assist with your professional development and challenge you intellectually. While your main focus will be corporate work, everyone at G+T has the opportunity to assist on pro bono matters and participate in firm-wide activities. You will develop invaluable skills and knowledge and gain first-hand experience of our various practice groups.

Our Melbourne programs run for four weeks in either winter or summer, providing a placement across Banking + Infrastructure, Competition + Regulation, Corporate Advisory, Disputes + Investigations and Technology + Digital. 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. 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 G+T clerkship experience is open to students in their penultimate year of study. We're not a prescriptive firm when it comes to our people; we invite individuality and diversity. We also hold ambition, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit in high regard. Our people are collaborative, passionate and dedicated – but most of all they enjoy what they do and never forget to have fun. We seek clerks and graduates who will complement our practice groups and don't feel the need to take themselves too seriously.

Graduate Success Stories

I would definitely recommend students have interests and passions outside of their career. The best and most successful lawyers in my opinion are people who are well-rounded, perceptive, interesting and diverse.

Sure, good grades are somewhat necessary, but being a fully-rounded individual is much more important. Do what makes you happy and research where you would like to be.
