You'll gain experience on high-profile cases and deals involving some of the world's biggest clients, explore multi-cultural matters and receive first-class training. All the while, you'll be developing a global view of the law and building a resume with a legal firm that's widely recognised around the world.

What can I get out of my clerkship?

Our vacation clerkships will immerse you in our business, networks and the international world of law. You'll receive hands-on practical experience, actively contributing, as you work on some of the diverse challenges facing the team you're collaborating with.
