AUS Summer Clerkship 2020-2021
Are you ready to help create the next chapter of our story?
Clyde & Co is running a national Summer Clerkship Program for
2020/2021 and invite you to submit your application.
The program is aimed at penultimate year law students, and is
designed to give you your first taste of working life in an
international law firm. Our summer clerkship program will commence on
Monday, 23 November 2020 and conclude on Friday, 5 February 2021 (this
includes a short break over the Christmas period) and will include
gaining experience in one or more of our core sector practice groups.
The Summer Clerkship Program is our primary method for graduate
recruitment and many of our summer clerks go on to start their legal
career with us.
If you’re looking for the perfect environment to learn, develop and
progress, we think you’ll love life here. We’re a growing firm (one of
the fastest growing in the world, in fact). And we work at the heart
of sectors that drive global trade and commerce. It makes this an
unrivalled opportunity to take on exciting, high profile work and to
grow as rapidly as us.
About the clerkship
As a Clyde & Co Summer Clerk you will do more than just shadow
our lawyers. You will gain practical experience as you work alongside
our Partners and experienced lawyers on interesting matters, you will
attend and contribute to client meetings building your business
development skills, and have the opportunity to expand and grow your
networks. We take a very hands-on approach to our program to give you
exposure to our niche practice areas in order that you will gain
valuable insight into how we operate.
Once you start as a Clyde & Co Summer Clerk you will be paired
with a buddy and mentor who will help you settle in and provide
guidance and support throughout your placement. You will also attend
training and information sessions to expand and develop your knowledge
and skills. There will also be a variety of social events to attend
throughout the program, allowing you to network with not only the
other clerks but with colleagues from across the firm.
About our lawyers
While we operate at the very highest level of our profession and are
respected around the world for our expertise, we have also created a
friendly, open and dynamic environment in which our lawyers enjoy
working. We have a strong team ethos and value the individual
contributions our employees make to the firm. We want our people to
fulfil their ambitions: they are the future of the firm.
At Clyde & Co, we recognise and reward our talented employees and
their career aspirations, are committed to internal promotion and
provide a structured approach to career development. As an employee of
Clyde & Co, you will work in an open and inclusive environment
where we look to improve our employees' overall experience, in and out
of the workplace.
We work with high profile clients on prestigious projects that
directly impact the world we live in. At the same time, we have the
kind of down-to-earth culture that means people here quickly feel at
home – whatever their level. Join us as a student or graduate, and you
can look forward to exceptional training and real responsibility in an
environment that’s as supportive as it is inspiring.
