Our team is growing and we have a strong need for the very best graduates.
Our graduate program is structured with both “on the job” and formal, focussed, one-on-one training (usually with our senior lawyers and partners), and is offered by way of a 1 year contract.
In our graduate program, graduates are given carriage of real transactions (under close and careful supervision) so that they are exposed to a wide range of tasks to develop skills in drafting, client relationship management, legal research, file management as well as the practical aspects of conveyancing and leasing complex commercial assets. We pride ourselves on providing a high level of mentoring and development feedback throughout the program.
Our graduate program is open to applicants who, at the commencement of the program have completed their law degree.
We usually have 2 graduate intakes per year (for programs commencing in February and August). Applications for our February 2024 intake are now closed. If you qualify for a graduate position and would like to register your interest for a future intake, please see the application process below.
Massons is a premium law firm specialising exclusively in Australian commercial property law. Led by Jodie Masson and Leisha de Aboitiz, Massons has a high profile within the real estate industry and a sophisticated client base built on long-term relationships.
We also offer all graduates the opportunity to undertake a 2-month Massons’ sponsored secondment with Human Rights for All during their graduate year. HR4A is a team of exceptional lawyers representing refugees and stateless people seeking freedom before Tribunals, in the Federal Court, Federal Circuit Court and the High Court.
This model significantly differs from the usual ‘pro bono’ model adopted by most law firms. Not only will graduates experience a litigation rotation, but they will be encouraged to think creatively and courageously and use their legal training as a means of giving back to the community.
Massons advises on any legal issue relating to the acquisition, sale or ongoing management of commercial property. It is a rapidly growing firm, prioritising retention of the best people.
Massons delivers simple solutions for complex property projects.
The goal: making hard things look easy.
If successful, you would be working in our state-of-the-art office located at 185 Clarence Street, Sydney.
