Grow your potential with us
Graduates and Clerkships

Our clerkships give you a taste of what life is like as a lawyer and working at Thomson Geer.

What will I do?

You'll be part of our teams from day one, getting hands on experience working with our lawyers.

Our structured program provides training, coaching and feedback.

You'll do real work, attend client meetings and receive support from a Partner and junior lawyer.

What's it like at Thomson Geer?

We've created an environment that's flexible, friendly, personable, collegiate and professionally stimulating.

We're big on communication and ensure we're respectful and accountable to each other.

We also encourage a balanced lifestyle and support social activities that promote wellness.

How do I apply?

Apply during the clerkship application period in your state here.

At the next stage we'll ask you to provide a video answering a range questions.

Successful applicants will then be invited to an information evening and networking event where you'll meet Partners and learn more about Thomson Geer.

I applied with Thomson Geer because it is a large Australian corporate law firm that is continuing to develop even further. I very much wanted to be a part of that growth and development. The depth and nature of work was also significant.
