Massons is looking for highly intelligent and driven paralegals to join the paralegal pool at our commercial property specialist firm. Reporting to the partners and senior lawyers of that team, our paralegals work on a wide range of premium commercial property matters, providing both legal and administrative support.
The position is based in the Sydney CBD and we will provide training for the role.
We are looking to employ casual paralegals in our team for a 6 month contract term, to work on an “as needed” basis. Generally, most paralegals will work with us 2 days per week, depending on their university commitments and the work available. We will run a formal recruitment process at least twice each year to refresh and extend the available pool of talented paralegals.
Massons often employs graduates straight from its paralegal pool, which has the advantage of our graduates being advanced in their legal knowledge and skills, even before they complete their final “practical legal training” component of study and are admitted as lawyers.
To be considered for this role, you will be technically savvy, motivated and a team player. We are looking for employees who we can invest in and mentor to become excellent lawyers, and who want to develop a career as part of our team. Previous experience as a paralegal is not required, though will be preferred.

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.
