Graduate & Vacation Clerks
Vacation clerkships 2017
Our vacation clerkships are held in our Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney offices over the summer and winter university breaks. The programs run for three weeks and give clerks the unique opportunity to experience our firm, our practice areas and most importantly, our culture. Working as a vacation clerk with the firm can often act as a stepping stone to an ongoing role as a law clerk or graduate.
"My favourite thing about my clerkship at Barry.Nilsson. was the people. Everybody was incredibly easy to get along with and made my experience so worthwhile"
