At Macpherson Kelley, we do things a bit differently.

The Victorian Graduate Program is part of our National program. It is a 12 month program where you will rotate across a number of different practice areas that will expose you to a variety of different commercial law firm experiences. To support your on the job learning, you will complete supervised legal training all while receiving close mentoring and coaching from your peers and supervising Principals.
We focus on building strong business minded lawyers, who can work closely with clients and understand their challenges and opportunities and add value to their businesses.
