First Nations Legal Internship 2024

"First Nations voices need to be in rooms where decisions are made - our voices deserve to be platformed and prioritised" - Trent Wallace, First Nations Lead. Trent is a Wongaibon person who was raised on Darkinjung country and now resides in Meanjin (Brisbane).

Ashurst First Nations Legal Internship is one way you can be in the room.

Our First Nations Legal Internship is a two-week paid program, designed to give First Nations law students exposure to a commercial legal environment. Participants will be involved in legal work as well as undertaking development and research activities. Each student will be assigned a buddy and a supervising lawyer for the duration of the placement.

Applications are now open for the program which will commence in April 2024. Our First Nations Legal Internship will be run in all of our offices across Australia.


This opportunity is available to all First Nations law students who are not in their first or final years of study in 2024. These internships are intended as measures which reflect our commitments set out in our Reconciliation Action Plan, and are designed to meet the relevant exemptions in the applicable state and Commonwealth anti-discrimination legislation.


Please submit your application along with CV and academic transcript by 5:00pm on Friday, 24 November, 2023. If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Slaney at nicole.slaney@ashurst.com
