King & Wood Mallesons - 2022/23 Seasonal Clerkship Program, Brisbane

About the Clerkship Program

Clerkships give you a clearer picture of what it's like to be a lawyer at KWM. You'll get to know our people, our work, our culture, practice areas, clients and much more. For many, the Clerkship Program is the first stage of continuous professional development at KWM. Successful completion of the clerkship program is a deciding factor in determining graduate offers at KWM.

How it works:

We have designed a program to help you make the most of your time with us.

During your clerkship, you'll learn:

  • The day-to-day skills to get you started – taking instructions, drafting memos and documents, managing your practice and professional relationships.
  • The core practice teams at KWM – who they are, what they do, how they're structured and the clients they work for.
  • Our culture – working within your team, you'll be exposed to (and encouraged) to gain an insight into our unique culture.
  • Our people – you'll find that people from every part of the business will help you by sharing their knowledge and support you through the early stages of your career and beyond.

You will also participate in a clerkship innovation course which will provide you with fundamental learning on the LegalTech KWM uses.It’s a hands-on role so you won’t just be watching from the sidelines!
