Summer clerkship

A summer clerkship in Sydney offers you a unique and highly professional program, structured to cultivate the skills and attributes you will need to launch your legal career.

During your clerkship we focus on innovation, practical learning and mentoring. With us, you will have opportunities to:

  • Gain real experience in the world’s largest polycentric law firm
  • Get hands-on during an immersive client secondment
  • Socialize and network with clients, partners, lawyers and other clerks.

Our Summer Clerk Program stands apart from the rest! You can expect a seat at the table from day one, presenting the opportunity to learn from Australia’s foremost lawyers and to work with a client base resembling the “who’s who” of the ASX Top 200 companies.

The clerkship program runs from November to February, including rotations in two of our practice areas and a secondment with one of our key clients. We encourage law students in their penultimate year of university to apply.
Dentons encourages and rewards talent. If your clerkship is successful you will be offered a graduate position upon completion of the program, as well as the opportunity to work casually while completing your studies.
