Winter clerkship

Summer clerkship

Law clerkship

“It’s quite hard to know what exactly lawyers actually do when you’re in law school and the clerkship was the perfect window into life at a corporate law firm. I got to help out with a range of different matters and sit in on client meetings. I felt very well-supported and ended up learning a lot! It was also cool to see how my work contributed to the deal. The best part was the people I met. Everyone was friendly, kind and really easy to talk to. I got a lot of useful advice on studying, degree planning and career outlook. If you’re on the fence about applying, just go for it! ”
