Georgiadis Lawyers offers Summer and Winter Clerkships and PLT Placements
What is a legal clerkship and why are they important?
A legal clerkship also known as a legal internship or clerkship is an important part of the recruitment process in Australia. It is a short period of time where a law student gains work experience at a law firm. You can think of this period as an extended interview for yourself and the law firm. Even having one clerkship under your belt can give you a head start in embarking on your legal career. If you are looking to improve your chances of securing a graduate job in an increasingly competitive legal industry you must understand the legal clerkship process. At Georgiadis Lawyers, and most other law firms, you must undertake a clerkship if you desire to gain employment there as a graduate.
