Clerkships give you a clearer picture of what it's like to be a lawyer at King & Wood Mallesons. You'll get to know our people, the way we like to work, our culture, practice areas, clients and much more. For many, the clerkship experience is the first career step in their future career in law.

How it works:

We've designed a program to help you make the most of your time with us. During your clerkship, you'll learn:

  • The day-to-day skills to get you started – taking instructions, drafting memos and documents, managing your practice and professional relationships.
  • The core practice teams at King & Wood Mallesons – who they are, what they do, how they're structured, the clients they work for.
  • Our culture – working within your team, you'll be exposed to (and encouraged) to gain an insight into our unique culture.
  • Our people – you'll find that people from every part of the business will help you along, sharing their knowledge, and ensuring you have everything you need to fit in and do well.                                                                      

To be eligible to apply for our clerkship program, you must be an Australian citizen, or permanent resident or hold, or be able to obtain, all other approvals necessary for you to work for the firm in Australia for the clerkship and the graduate program. By submitting an application, you confirm that you meet, or are reasonably able to meet, the eligibility requirements.

We do accept and welcome applications for the King & Wood Mallesons clerkship program from international students in their penultimate year of their Australian or New Zealand law degree, provided that you have unrestricted legal rights to work in Australia when you commence your clerkship and you are able to apply for a visa to continue to work unrestricted in Australia upon graduation. Graduates are responsible for independently obtaining the correct visa.

Academic Transcripts

We understand some universities will not release academics for Semester 1 until close to the application deadline. For those students, we ask that you hold off submitting your application until you receive your academics (and before the application deadline), if possible. Please note you can still commence your application and save and continue later.

If your university will not be releasing academic results until after applications have closed, please submit your application with your most up-to-date academics that you have at the time. If you are invited to a first interview, please bring a hard copy of your latest official transcript for us to sight. Please note there is no need to email through your transcript after the closing date for applications.
