Clerkship Applications, Clerkship Interviews and Law Resumes
For the law students out there who are completing the somwhat daunting legal summer clerkship or articles clerkship applications at the moment, I thought it may be helpful to provide a set of links to each of the main Australian Law Firm careers sites.
It is not an easy job choosing a firm in which to complete a legal clerkship and ultimately the the amount of choice that you have is somewhat dictated by your personal situation, your law average and your connections.
Before making any decisions and in preparation for the process remember to think about why you want to work in a law firm, what about each particular firm makes you want to work there and the practice areas that interest you most. Most importantly however, think hard about your experiences, what you are proud of and how to express them in the most appropriate manner.

Whilst this list is not exhaustive, I hope it helps law students out there trying to navigate the overwhelming application maze that you can be drawn into.
