2022/2023 Melbourne Vacation Clerkship

What can you expect from the White & Case Vacation Clerkship?

Our Vacation Clerkship is a great way to experience first-hand what life is like as a graduate at White & Case. 

As a part of our four-week program, you’ll be welcomed into our team, where you’ll undertake a number of meaningful and challenging tasks. You will also have the opportunity to connect with our wider APAC network, both informally and through the matters and projects you'll be exposed too.

You’ll have the opportunity to attend client meetings, work on pro bono matters, and broaden your understanding of large cross-border transactions and matters. Wherever your career takes you, we guarantee that you'll build skills and experience that will last.

Throughout the clerkship, you will:

  • Learn about the Firm and our practice areas in Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region
  • Discover our graduate program, including our overseas seats
  • Join in social events, network and get to know our people
  • Have continual support and feedback through your allocated supervisor (partner), mentor (senior associate) and buddy (graduate or junior associate)

What are we looking for?

There’s no typical White & Case clerk, in fact we actively seek out people with a range of attributes to further enhance our already globally diverse teams. In saying that, alongside academic excellence there are certain attributes that we know are proven for success:

You have a global mindset: An interest in working globally and cross-cultural awareness is essential for the work we advise on, the nature of our clients, and the diversity within our teams.

You are driven to succeed: Like us, you’re not afraid of hard work and you’re dedicated to achieving great results. You have ambition to be a successful global lawyer. 

You’re a team player: We act as one Firm and one team, and look to recruit graduates with the same collegial outlook.

You take initiative: You ask meaningful questions and seek feedback on your work, with the intention of constant improvement.

You’re client focused: Our graduates are exposed to clients from the very beginning. They’ll come to depend on your focus on detail and simplifying the complex 

You have integrity: We have a global reputation for first-class legal work, and you’ll work towards building and maintaining trust with our clients and your colleagues.
