You'll get to know our people, the way we like to work, our culture, practice areas, clients and more.

During your clerkship, you'll learn:

  • The day-to-day skills to get you started – taking instructions, meeting with clients, drafting memos/documents, managing your practice and professional relationships.
  • Our core practice teams– who they are, what they do, how they're structured, the clients they work for, and of course, your role within them.
  • Our culture –you'll be exposed to (and encouraged) to get actively involved in the many activities and events that define KWM.
  • Our people – you'll find that people from every part of the business will help you along, sharing their knowledge, and ensuring you have everything you need to succeed.

At King & Wood Mallesons, clerks usually work in one or two practice groups depending which office you are applying to. You'll be allocated a supervisor in each of your practice groups and you'll work closely with the partners, senior associates and solicitors in that team. It's a hands-on role, you won't just be watching from the sidelines. During your time in the team, you'll be involved in telephone conversations, meetings, client visits and the deals or matters the team is working on.

Every clerk at King & Wood Mallesons receives feedback. Informal feedback is also provided on the job from partners, senior associates or solicitors talking you through the work you do.

Our people have the opportunity to get involved in the many social and sporting activities that go on in the firm, as well as pro bono and volunteer work to give back to the broader community in which we work and live.
