Your Learning and Development

King & Wood Mallesons

Our people are encouraged to shape their own career path, supported at every step with world-class training, coaching and hands-on experience. There is no ‘one size fits all’ career model, we understand that there are many different pathways that can lead to rewarding careers.

Our graduates are critical to the success and evolution of our business. At King & Wood Mallesons, we let you go beyond the law to become what you want to be.

You will be offered a unique training experience with multiple rotations and a bespoke comprehensive learning and development program. We invest heavily in learning and development to support you in fulfilling your potential.

Our Graduate program provides a practical business foundation for junior lawyers where you will learn:

  • Meaningful work covering a wide range of practice areas;
  • Client contact and an in-depth understanding of how they operate in a commercial and regulatory environment;
  • The opportunity to work with a range of partners, senior associates and solicitors in different practice groups;
  • A practical understanding of areas of our legal practice; and
  • A comprehensive knowledge of the firm, our technology, our resources, our processes and, of course, the people you’ll work with.
  • As part of the Graduate Program, we also offer a Practical Legal Training (PLT) course with the College of Law to our Australian Law Graduates, ensuring that you meet the requirements for admission to legal practice.
