Ashurst 2021/2022 Seasonal Clerkship Program - Sydney

Ashurst Seasonal Clerkships

The best way to understand what it feels like to work here is to actually work here! Every year, we hold clerkships in each of our offices to give you an intensive experience of our culture and the kind of work we do.

During your clerkship you’ll spend time in two teams, where you’ll work with a supervising partner, a lawyer and a buddy who’ll get you involved in real work.

You can expect to be involved in a wide variety of work and activities during your clerkship. Ranging from preparing draft articles for clients, preparing file notes and case summarises to assisting with pro-bono matters and research projects.

There's also a chance to get involved in understanding other practice areas through workshops, team-building events to understand how we work together, and social events to get to know our teams away from the bustle of daily life.


We are accepting applications for our 2021/22 Seasonal Clerkships in for our Sydney and Canberra offices until 14 July 2021 (AEST 11:59).

What you say in your application is up to you: but be sure to express your personality and tell us why you want to be a commercial lawyer – and why you’d like to join Ashurst in particular.

We offer clerkships in each of our Australian offices, application and recruitment dates are aligned to the state guidelines. You'll firstly need to decide which office you want to clerk in, and only make one application.

Students must be in their penultimate or final year to be eligible. You also need to have Australian citizenship or be a permanent resident at the time of application.
