Get your Suits On? Non-Conventional Applicants Sought for Legal Summer Clerkship

We want someone different… Want to get your Suits on?
This might be an opportunity for you.


Every summer, Kernaghan & Associates appoints between one and three Law Clerks for a two month engagement during the December to January or January to February periods (usually about the time of summer holidays at most universities).

A summer clerkship is an opportunity to contribute to a highly motivated and active legal team across a variety of areas of criminal law practice. Our firm is a leading criminal law litigator and provides advice to clients throughout Australia. Summer clerkships are paid in accordance with the relevant federal award provisions.

We are looking for people from diverse backgrounds, interests and experience who have an ability and an enthusiasm to provide administrative and paralegal support to the work of our legal team. We are not looking for conventional or traditional law school types, we want someone who has a record of initiative, of passion and energy, of lateral thinking and non-conventional wisdom. That’s why our clerkships are open to anyone, including people who haven’t studied law or even attended university.

We want diversity in substance and in gender. We are open to all applications and what to hear from you.
