What we are looking for?

We’re looking for vibrant, personable and commercially minded individuals who are prepared to be pushed to be the best you can possibly be. We want you to come prepared to tell us why you would like to start your career at Allens, and show us that you are not afraid to embrace challenges outside of your comfort zone. Be prepared to talk about your skills, openness to learning and experiences both at Uni and work. We are also really keen to know about your interests outside of Uni and work, and importantly what you like to do for fun!

Most of all, we want you be yourself and tell us who you are.

We will consider the following when considering your application:

  • CV and cover letter
  • Strong academic results
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Motivation and enthusiasm to excel in commercial law
  • Community and University involvement
  • Connection to our values – Excellence, Integrity, Respect, Performance, One firm

Our clerkship program

We will run two three-week clerkship programs in the Brisbane office across summer in 2015/16. The first will start in November and the second in January, in line with university holidays.

Our clerkship program is a great way for you to see how we operate and find out if a career at Allens is for you. You’ll gain first-hand exposure to life as a lawyer by getting involved in real work as soon as you set foot in the firm. Work alongside lawyers and partners; learn from their feedback and enjoy their support. You’ll also come away with all the insights you need to make an informed decision about your future.

Here’s a quick rundown of what you can look forward to.

  • An induction program that introduces you to our people and the work we do.
  • On-the-job training with support from a partner and junior lawyer who’ll act as your supervisor and buddy.
  • The opportunity to work with many of Australia’s and the world’s top 100 companies.
  • Tasks similar to those of a junior lawyer.
  • Seminars on everything from our pro bono work, our committees and working in our Asian offices, to skills development, secondments and building a sustainable career.
  • Sports and social events where you will really get to know us.
  • The chance to get involved in our community work.
  • An opportunity to build a network of peers.
