Hiring grads with degrees in: Law & Legal Studies
Who are we?
Lander & Rogers is a leading independent Australian law firm operating nationally from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. We are proud to be the trusted advisor to many publicly listed and private Australian companies, Australian subsidiaries of global companies as well as all levels of government.
We have seven areas of practice, and we cover a range of industry sectors, with a focus on financial services, insurance, government, real estate and retail and supply chain.
We believe that legal services are much more than just the law - they are about great people, sustained excellence and exceptional client service. We have a reputation in the legal market as a provider of premium legal services, and as a sought after employer. We are renowned in Australia for our down-to-earth and friendly workplace culture.
What makes us different?
We care about our people and about building a great culture. Unlike a lot of law firms, we believe you can produce great work and still have fun while you're doing it.
We have a distinctively happy workplace, achieved through selectively recruiting people who think and act collaboratively and will strengthen our culture.
The firm comprises 61 partners and approximately 400 lawyers, support and business services staff. We have grown organically, resulting in a highly cohesive firm sharing a strong work and services ethic, and high staff and partner retention rates.
As a medium sized firm, we're big enough to attract great clients with fantastic work; but small enough to be focussed on the important things like learning and development, opportunities for our people to progress, mentoring our junior lawyers and maintaining a happy workplace.
Opportunities for law students
Each year we recruit up 25 penultimate year law students to undertake seasonal clerkships with our firm during the university holidays.
Our Seasonal Clerk and Graduate programs build on your university education in a range of practical ways from structured training, to workshops, to formal and informal mentoring. But mostly by doing real work for real clients.
We’re looking for people with the intelligence to tackle complex and interesting legal scenarios, energy to absorb new concepts and willingness to work productively with lots of different people.
And we want recruits who are friendly and have a down-to-earth style. Law is a people business, so this is important when dealing with clients and it’s also a key ingredient in our happy workplace.
We want lawyers who are good with people, as well as the law.
