At Thomson Geer, we are looking for hard-working and motivated law students who are enthusiastic about commencing their career with a dynamic, collaborative and growing law firm. We view all of our clerks as potential graduates, and all of our graduates as potential leaders. If your ambitions are to develop a career in law and you possess the drive to make your ambitions a reality, then we want to hear from you!
Our program:  
We offer a structured four-week program where clerks learn through a combination of hands-on experience, training, coaching, and observation. During your four weeks, you get to become a central member of your team working directly with our partners and clients.  
All of our clerks have the opportunity to undertake meaningful work for real clients, including:

  • Attend client meetings
  • Observe court proceedings
  • Conduct legal research
  • Develop technical skills in areas such as drafting, due diligence, and disclosure
  • Participate in team meetings, training, and continuing legal education programs

You will be supported by a supervising partner, their team, and a mentor. Our well-resourced corporate services team will also be there to assist throughout the program.  

Clerks are encouraged to participate in firm social events - Friday night drinks, the end of year party, and other social and sporting activities. We want to ensure that you not only gain valuable experience from your clerkship but you have fun doing so!

Students who complete a clerkship with the firm will be eligible to be considered for a position in the firm's next graduate program, commencing in 2025 or 2026. This program runs for 12 months and includes rotations among different practice areas to help determine the area of law which best suits you.  

Our areas of practice in Perth:

  • Banking & Finance
  • Corporate & Commercial
  • Dispute Resolution & Litigation
  • Energy & Resources
  • Environment & Planning
  • Property & Development

The application process:

If your ambition is to develop a career in commercial law and you possess the drive to make your ambitions a reality, then we want to hear from you.  If you also have a desire to work interstate one day, let us know!  We welcome the opportunity to assist our team members with personal career development.   

We conduct a multi-stage recruitment process, with candidates participating in a video research task and an opportunity to engage directly with our partners. We encourage you to review our website for firm information and contact us with any questions you have throughout our recruitment process.  

The 2024/25 Thomson Geer Perth Summer Clerkship will consist of two four-week programs, with program 1 running approximately mid November 2024 to mid December and program 2 running approximately late January to late February 2025.

Applications close Sunday 30 July.
