Our 8 week Summer Clerkship Program will commence on Monday, 28 November 2022 and will include gaining experience in one or more of our core sector practice groups.

This 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 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.

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.
