First Nations Legal Internship Program

Allens is currently accepting applications for our First Nations Legal Internship program across our Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth offices. The program, which has been running for 16 years, is an opportunity for First Nations law students to find out more about working in a commercial legal environment. Previous interns have gone on to become paralegals, clerks and graduates at Allens.

The program will run in person, subject to COVID-19 restrictions, from Monday, 7 February to Friday, 18 February 2022 in all locations.

As part of the program, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • learn more about who we are and the work we do;
  • join a practice group and work on real matters with the support from a partner and junior lawyer, who will act as your performance coach and buddy;
  • hear tips on our clerkship recruitment process and what life is like as a graduate at Allens;
  • get to know our people and forge mentor relationships with some of the best in the legal profession.

Applications are open to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander law students. Applications will close at 11.55pm (AEST) on Sunday, 7 November 2021.
