clerkships

  • Hunger GamesIt’s that time of year again. Clerkship season is around the corner for many law students around the country, with applications opening on 17 June for New South Wales, 13 July for Victoria, and 20 July for Western Australia. Every year, thousands of students go through this stressful, time-consuming and emotional process. Unfortunately, even before you type the first letter on your cover letter, the odds are stacked against you with less than 7% of law graduates being employed by the commercial law firms that offer clerkships.
