We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver innovative strategic guidance and solutions to complex problems related to our clients' commercial interests, legal position and reputation.

We organise our practice groups to allow our lawyers to be broad generalists and our groups are split between transactions and disputes. Our services cover:

  • banking & finance;
  • competition;
  • corporate & commercial;
  • dispute resolution & litigation;
  • native title & public interest law;
  • property & development;
  • reconstruction & insolvency;
  • taxation;
  • technology & intellectual property; and
  • workplace advisory.

We are seeking outstanding graduates to join ABL across multiple practice areas in 2022. This role would suit either final year students completing their law degree, recent graduates or someone who has recently commenced their career and is looking to join private practice.

About Our Graduate Program

At Arnold Bloch Leibler we believe success comes from investing in personal and professional growth. That's why we've stepped outside the square to provide a unique in-house graduate training program.
Rather than attending an external course, as a graduate, you will learn on the ground, from our best and brightest partners and senior associates – leaders in their respective fields who provide supervised training and continuous mentoring. The Supervised Legal Training (SLT) program is designed to be practical, engaging and upskill our lawyers for practice, based on guidelines set out by the Counsel of Legal Education. If you are newly admitted, you will have the opportunity to partake in the in-house training program as it will assist with your learning and development whilst working in a commercial law firm.
You will be assigned to a practice group and a supervising partner who will invest heavily in your development and get you involved in a wide variety of matters throughout your graduate year. You will benefit from real work experience, direct client contact and a bespoke training program that will set you apart from your peers in the profession.
Your engagement is our focus and we know it is important to make the right career choices. ABL is a commercial law firm that gives graduate trainees the flexibility to either become outstanding generalists, or specialists in their chosen practice area. At ABL, it is the hope that every graduate trainee will one day become a Partner.
