Two senior Lawyers, usually Senior Associates, from different practice teams are assigned to supervise and mentor each clerk. They ensure clerks have plenty of work which can come from all practice areas in the firm. Clerks have the opportunity to source work from practice areas they are interested in.
Clerks are involved in drafting documents, undertaking research, attending client meetings and attending court.
Clerks also have the opportunity to attend our professional continuing education programme and join in with the firms social and charity activities.
At the end of every placement an exit interview will take place where feedback is provided. Clerks are given the opportunity to rate the firm and provide suggestions on how we can improve the programme. We are not afraid to listen, adapt and improve.
2020 Clerkship application dates will be released very soon
Applications for the Clerkship programme should be directed by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a covering letter, curriculum vitae and an up to date copy of the applicant’s academic transcript.
