Massons continues to expand and our senior lawyers are looking to grow both their clients and quality of work. We therefore have a real desire to build a “pipeline of talent” into our team.
Our next clerkship program is for a 4 week period commencing on 25 November 2019 and is open to all current law students, but priority will be given to penultimate year law students. We aim to have an intake of between 3 to 5 students for our program. Our clerks will be able to experience “first hand” what it means to work in a specialised legal practice at the cutting edge of property law.
The clerkship program has 3 main components:
We pride ourselves on providing a high level of mentoring and development feedback throughout the program. Even if you do not continue with a career in property law, you will develop and grow as a result of your time with us.
If you are interested in achieving a placement in the Massons formal clerkship program, you will need to ideally:
A team that is highly successful, supportive and energetic led by partners who have left major global firms to do things differently. We have an enviable client list including several global companies, government entities and large property trusts. As part of the Massons’ team you will have the opportunity to work on complex and interesting commercial transactions and gain invaluable experience.
We will also offer our clerks plenty of opportunities to get to know us, and each other. Our team is cohesive, warm and friendly and we will provide plenty of social activities so that you can have fun whilst you are learning!
If successful, you would be working in our offices in Sydney, on the waterfront at Jones Bay Wharf.
If you fit the above criteria, and would like to apply for a clerkship placement, please send your resume and academic transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 11 October 2019. Your application must also include a cover letter succinctly providing answers to the following questions:
Candidates will be largely assessed and selected based on their written application (ie your submitted answers to the questions above, your resume and your academic results). We will review all written applications to select a shortlist of candidates. Those shortlisted candidates will be invited to a “get to know you” breakfast function on the date set out below. (If applying, be sure to put this date in your calendar now!)
The breakfast function will be an opportunity for us to get to know more about you, and for you to meet and chat with our employees of all levels, hear more about the opportunity and the skills you might need in the transition from studying to legal practise, and to decide whether Massons is the right firm for you.
Offers will then be made shortly following the breakfast function.
