Finding the right fit for you is key to deciding where to start your legal career. Since working together is a good way to get to know each other, we offer a range of summer and winter clerkships in each of our Australian offices. We encourage students to participate in our vacation clerkship program and we fill the majority of our graduate positions through this program.
Spend part of your vacation with us and you'll get a great understanding of how we go about meeting the needs of our clients. The program includes a detailed introduction to the firm and to each practice group, as well as the opportunity to work with our legal teams on real matters. The Sydney vacation clerkship program runs for 10 weeks from around November 2018 to February 2019.
Please note: Applications will only be considered for one office of Herbert Smith Freehills, this includes globally. Please only make an application to the office where you intend to start your career as a graduate.
