How it works

Our graduate program is built around our core practice groups, and during the 12 month program, you will rotate through up to 5 practice groups across the firm’s Commercial and Insurance Divisions. To find out more about the firm’s practice groups, please click here.

The program is designed to give you exposure to a broad range of skills and experiences in the law. At the end of the program, a placement in the preferred area of practice may be accommodated based on the experience and availability within the firm, following successful completion of legal qualifications.

During each rotation you will meet regularly with your assigned supervisor and you will also have the support of a buddy. At the end of each rotation, you will meet with your supervisor and HR for a formal review, which provides an opportunity to discuss your experiences and progress as you go through the program.

Learning & Development

In addition to your induction program, you will attend a tailored learning program during your graduate year.  This has been designed to develop your skills so you are ready to make the transition from law graduate to lawyer by the end of the program.

Our graduates are asked to present an in-house seminar on a topic of their choice that is relevant to the skills of a particular rotation area to strengthen and develop their presentation skills.  You will also be able to participate in our Trial by Podcast series and work with our Knowledge Management team on a year-long innovation project!
