Be One of Us

Squire Patton Boggs

From the outset you will be provided with the tools, practical experience and opportunities you need to set your own challenges and define your career path.

You’ll have the opportunity to connect to a global network of colleagues and clients, working on high quality commercial work from day one. Our firm is committed to a culture of collaboration and excellence; ensuring you receive the support you need to grow and progress in your legal career.

Paralegal Opportunities

At Squire Patton Boggs, we have a number of casual paralegal opportunities available in our teams which provides an alternative pathway into graduate recruitment. Working as a paralegal in our offices gives you a unique insight into the real life environment of our firm that vacation clerks would not experience. If successfully hired as a paralegal in our firm, you will be working on an ongoing basis with a variety of teams gaining long-term exposure to the day to day operations of a commercial law firm. Our paralegals are working directly with our teams to achieve meaningful results for our clients from day one.

If a clerkship is a snapshot of what it’s like to work at a particular firm, then a paralegal position is more of an “understudy” role.

Isabella Mosole, 2019 Law Graduate

Our paralegal opportunities are advertised on a needs basis and advertised directly through our website, Seek and your university. Keep an eye out for notifications from your university representative and ensure you are subscribed to notifications on our Careers page.

Graduate Programs

We pride ourselves on being entrepreneurial and commercial in the way we approach business and this is the same approach we take to our recruitment. Hiring our graduates in an out of cycle process allows us flexibility with our needs which are ever changing in today’s commercial environment. It also offers students an alternative pathway into securing a challenging and sought after graduate position with a global law firm.

Although we do not participate in the formal graduate recruitment programs available, we do offer an attractive graduate program to our successful applicants. At Squire Patton Boggs, we understand that everyone is different and our programs reflect this. As a graduate, you will be exposed to complex, high profile client work from day one. There is no structure to your learning and it is up to you to define the career path you want. What we offer you is the support, guidance and opportunities to develop and accelerate your career.
