We invite applications from law undergraduates (at any stage of their degrees) interested in a litigation or commercial career with a boutique city law firm.
This is a rare opportunity to work as a legal professional in a collegiate environment with an established and progressive firm.
Since 2002, we have successfully employed law undergraduates on a permanent part-time basis whilst they study. Our objective is to build mutually satisfying long-term relationships with exceptional men and women. To meet our expectations you will be a potentially talented lawyer with considerable personal qualities, commitment and enthusiasm.
We will invest substantial time and resources in your professional development. We will assign you to a senior mentor who will supervise your work and help you develop the skills to manage or meaningfully contribute to some aspect of our business. Our cadets attend conferences with senior lawyers; liaise with clients; draft correspondence; appear in court on (sometimes complex) chambers matters including appearances before masters and judges of the Supreme Court; proof witnesses; brief counsel; attend court with counsel; draft documents and more.
Additionally, we will encourage you to participate in some aspect of the management of the practice which could include promotional or marketing activities, software development, human resources, systems administration, library or document management.
We expect you to work at least 25 hours per week during university semesters and otherwise full-time; and to reduce the level of your university commitments accordingly. We will negotiate flexible working hours so you can meet your university commitments.
Our expectations are high – but the rewards are considerable. By the time they graduate, our successful cadet lawyers:
*command full-time salaries well above the going rates for articled clerks;
*have the skills and expertise of a first or second year lawyer as well as an appreciation of the business side of managing a modern legal practice; and
*are highly sought after by other leading law firms.
Applications must be made via our website www.cadetships.birmanride.com.au
