From Day One 

From Day One you will experience what it’s like to work at Maddocks. 

This means you will have challenging, meaningful work, gain exposure to clients, be given a good level of responsibility, work in a supportive and collaborative team and have regular access to our partners. 

The training you receive throughout your clerkship will ensure you are thoroughly prepared and ready to get involved in and contribute to client work straight away. 

The program begins with a comprehensive orientation which includes training and development activities. You will also meet the people you’ll be working with. 

During the program you will rotate through two practice groups of your preference, with support in each rotation from a buddy and coordinator. You will receive feedback from partners and others you work with, and a feedback review at the end of each rotation. 

Of course it’s important to have some fun too and you will have plenty of opportunities to experience life at Maddocks through a range of social and sporting activities. 

Beyond Day One 

You will have access to top quality work for high calibre clients. This will enable you to develop both your technical legal skills and business acumen on a diverse range of complex and interesting projects. 

Working autonomously and collaboratively, you will be supervised, mentored and supported by recognised experts in their respective legal fields at every stage of your career progression. In addition, the firm offers a significant range of outstanding training and development programs tailored to a wide variety of needs and interests. 

Maddocks is very proud of and committed to its pro bono program which engages lawyers to contribute to the community in a meaningful way. 

Or perhaps your interests and passions will lead to your involvement in one of our Diversity, Inclusion and Innovation projects. For those lawyers with leadership aspirations, our Accelerate program is a career development program that has a focus on empowering senior lawyers to maximise their potential as individuals and as leaders.
