Melbourne Undergraduate Program

Our Melbourne office offers a four week seasonal clerkship in February and June.

You will work with a legal team in one of our practice groups with direct supervision by a senior lawyer. You will be taught the necessary skills to and gain the opportunity to work with people to advance your future career in law.

We don’t recruit law clerks to become additional administrative assistants, but rather to offer real legal support to our lawyers and partners. You will be kept busy with legal research and drafting.

Learning & Development Program

Our learning and development program is integral to ensuring that our clerks and graduates are ready to become admitted lawyers when they finish their university studies. The program consists of:

  • a tailored internal program concentrating on both legal and core business skills
  • on the job training from our partners and senior associates
  • practising your learned skill by doing real legal work like drafting and legal research.

Here’s what some of our other clerks, graduates and new lawyers have to say on what makes Piper Alderman’s program unique.
