What is a summer clerk?
Summer clerks are law students who join us for 12 weeks over summer to gain insights into the day-to-day operations of a law firm, understand various practice areas, and develop professional skills. Our summer clerkship is a temporary, paid position that provides law students with practical experience in a legal environment.
What will I be doing during my clerkship?
During your 12 weeks, you will complete two rotations within our practice teams. Typically, you will get to join workflow meetings with your team, shadow client meetings, attend court, undertake research and assist in drafting proceedings & other relevant legal documentation. As well as all things legal, you will be invited to join in firm social events and activities.
While we're interested in your academic performance, we're equally interested in you as a person - your passions, your goals and the mark you want to leave on the world as a lawyer of tomorrow.
Our application form covers the basics, we encourage you to use your CV and cover letter to provide a deeper insight into your work experiences, academic and non-academic achievements, extra-curricular activities, and personal interests. We want to know what skills you can bring to Wynn Williams but also what is important to you.
