2021/22 Sydney Vacation Clerkship Program

WHY HERBERT SMITH FREEHILLS?

Working in the country’s leading practice, you’ll get to collaborate with the best legal minds in the business, making an impact on Australian deals and matters that support businesses and communities. But you’re not simply limited to these shores.

With a network around the world, you’ll also have the opportunity to work with international clients, develop a global reputation and establish the career path that suits you. 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.

You’ll truly discover what it’s like to work at Herbert Smith Freehills, working alongside lawyers and partners. We’ll support you throughout your time with us with extensive training, touching on all aspects of the firm. We’ll also invite you to an exciting range of workshops and events, giving you the opportunity to network with people across the firm and the diverse groups we engage with. This is your unique opportunity to show us who you are.

WHAT’S THE CULTURE LIKE?

We’re proud of our culture. It’s supportive and it’s non-hierarchical. When you join us as a graduate, you’ll find that your growth is supported at all levels across the firm – whether you’re working on a high-profile takeover, catching up with an overseas client or taking on some challenging pro bono work. It’s an environment that will give you the skills you need to become a brilliant lawyer. And it’s an environment in which your perspective, ideas and experiences will make a real difference.

YOUR CAREER. YOUR WAY.

Wherever you’re ultimately heading in your career, by starting out with Australia’s leading law firm, you’re already on a dynamic path. Bringing your unique perspective and seeking out the opportunities that exist here, you’ll shape the career you want and you’ll do it your way.
It’s this 360 degree approach to thinking that really sets our people apart and makes the most of their diverse skills and attributes.
