Each year, we hunt around to find the best university students to join us for summer clerkships. A summer clerkship is where you work for the firm for around three months from November to February each year, in the university summer holidays. You get a taste of what life at a large law firm is like, so you can try the law before you buy.
We run two different processes for finding our super stars:
- our graduate recruitment campaign which kicks off in March of each year and is completed by the end of May (you can find out more about this here and
- our scholarship campaign, which runs from June to September each year (you can find out more about this here).
If you're thinking about things you can do to make your application stand out, check out some tips we have come up with for you.
You'll no doubt want an idea of what a summer clerkship at Simpson Grierson looks like. It's packed full of training and on-the-job learning. Everyone's experiences are slightly different, but we've put together a summary of the summer clerkship programme that you should have a look over.
Of course, it's just as important that we impress you, because we don't want you to start working for us unless you're stoked on it. So take a moment to see what it's really like working here. We're just know you'll learn heaps, meet some great people and develop both as a person and professionally. In our opinion, it would be hard for your summer clerkship not to be one of the best summers of your life!
