As you approach the end of your legal studies it can often be difficult to decide which area of practice is for you, and in which direction you should be driving your career. Participation in our clerkship program is the perfect opportunity for you to explore your interests and get a feel for what it would be like to become part of the team at Thomson Geer after you graduate.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
We offer a structured program where clerks learn through a combination of hands-on experience, training, coaching and observation. Thomson Geer was recently recognised in the Australian Financial Review as being a finalist in the Most Popular Clerkship Employer Award.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for hard-working and motivated law students who are enthusiastic about commencing their career with a dynamic law firm. We view all of our clerks as potential graduates, and all of our graduates as potential leaders. We therefore look for the same qualities in our clerks and graduates that our lawyers need to possess. Our lawyers need to be genuinely interested in our clients and their businesses. They need a critical and curious mind and be passionate about developing solutions for our clients' legal needs in their commercial context. Our lawyers need to work constructively in diverse teams with both senior and junior practitioners across legal disciplines and across jurisdictions.
We are particularly interested in students with a technical second degree.
THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS
We try and make our recruitment process as efficient, informative and streamlined as possible for candidates, acknowledging the often stressful nature of this period. Selected applicants will be invited to participate in a video interview process. Applicants that are selected to progress beyond that stage will be invited to a firm information and networking evening. This night is designed to provide you with the opportunity to meet our partners, some of our recent graduates and learn more about our culture and what sets us apart as an employer. You will have an opportunity to ask questions about the firm and have a chance to let us know more about you.
Applications received outside of application period for each state or via any other method (except cvMail) will not be accepted.
