Every year, law students from across the country join our Auckland and Wellington office for a summer clerkship.
A summer clerkship at Russell McVeagh, is a great way to start you legal career and gain experience in commercial law. You will be placed in two teams for the whole summer, giving you the opportunity to connect with our brilliant staff, other students and really get a feel for what working at a top tier law firm is all about.
We want you to get the most out of your summer, so you'll be supported with a fantastic induction programme, ongoing training and a buddy in both of your teams to show you the ropes and make sure you're settling in. You'll also have regular catch ups with the HR team, and a proper appraisal at the end of the summer.
We want to ensure all of our summer clerks experience real work and so we will aim to get you involved in transactions and client meetings along with firm wide trainings and briefings.
As part of the induction process, you'll spend a night away with your cohort, which is a fantastic opportunity to get to know the summer clerks and some partners at the firm.
For us, it's important to give back. Every year, our summer clerks run Charity drives to raise money for some of our pro bono clients. From decorating cookies, to giving singing complements, to quiz nights and the highly anticipated bake sale, there's always something to get behind.
