How to apply

Almost all of our partners and lawyers summer clerked with the firm. It is a great way to start your career too.

COVID-19 update March 2020

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 status within New Zealand and an increased focus on physical distancing, our on campus coffee carts and CV and interview tips workshops were cancelled – we plan to run our CV and interview tips workshop online and details will be on our Facebook page as soon as they are available.

Applications are now open until 6 April 2020 and we are available on email or phone to answer any questions you may have before applying. You will be advised by 1 May 2020 if you have been selected for an interview, which we now plan to hold in July/August.​

These adjusted timelines will allow us to continue to monitor the situation closely and refine alternative recruitment methods, rather than face-to-face interviews, to ensure the health and wellbeing of all involved. We hope that this will provide students clarity and comfort during this uncertain time.​​​
