Law Clerkships

Our law clerkship is a fantastic opportunity for students who have graduated and are ready to begin their careers at a leading commercial law firm.
You can apply to work in either our Auckland or Wellington offices where you will be offered our full support during your first year. We provide a fantastic induction and training programme, mentoring, learning and development opportunities, a work buddy, and the chance to get involved in Firm initiatives. You could join one of our diversity and inclusion committees, volunteer at a community law centre or get involved in Homework Club helping primary school students out with their studies.
We're proud to say that a law clerkship at Russell McVeagh has been the starting point for many brilliant careers. The experience and training we provide is internationally recognised - many of our people have chosen to work overseas at some of the world's top firms, before returning to Russell McVeagh. Beginning your career at Russell McVeagh is a fantastic opportunity to gain real experience and make your mark on the world.
What our law clerks say:

"Partners and seniors put serious focus on assisting the development of young lawyers, and the exposure to cutting-edge legal work from an early stage is second to none."
