Job description:

At MinterEllison our aspiration is to be our clients' best partner. Last year, MinterEllison introduced a new internal structure whereby the firm operates under four Lines of Business. This unique and market facing structure provides opportunity for greater collaboration across the firm and ensures that we are able to seamlessly service clients with our solutions-based approach.

This operating model also encourages a broad career path for our people. With increased opportunities to work across multiple practice areas our lawyers have the opportunity to develop a breadth of skills that will future proof their career.

MinterEllison lives and breathes the mantra of Innovate, Collaborate, and Inspire. We think beyond the law and apply a commercial approach and creative thinking to some of the region’s most high-profile transactions, projects and disputes.

The MinterEllison Clerkship Launch Program

The MinterEllison graduate and clerkship launch program is critical to our firm for three reasons. First, the market has changed, companies don't recognise borders the same way they used to, neither should your career. Secondly we know that Graduates entering the job market today have unique career expectations - and we have listened. Lastly the future of legal practice is moving very quickly and we need to be agile to ensure we continue to grow as a firm and that our talented people are able to future proof their career.

You should consider a career at MinterEllison if:

  • Your passion for excellence leads you to winning solutions.
  • Building relationships excites you. You see yourself outside the office, working in partnership with clients.
  • You think outside the box and embrace new ideas.
  • You want to feel empowered and be part of a high performance team.
  • Collaboration and inclusiveness are principles you value.
  • You have what it takes to apply technical thinking through the prism of commercial advice.
  • The status quo bores you. You want to be part of something different.
  • You're looking for a Firm with a clear game plan.

What you can expect:

Prior to the launch program we will work closely with you to identify areas of the law that you are passionate about. Throughout the launch program we will ensure you gain experience in practice areas within our Lines of Business that match your interests and that fit with your career goals.

Throughout our launch program you will get the opportunity to:

  • Work closely with partners and lawyers on active and challenging matters to meet deadlines for a variety of top tier and interesting clients
  • Build great relationships with mentors, access support from your supervising partner, and plenty of additional insight from your allocated buddy
  • Grow personally and professionally from within our strong learning culture
  • Develop new networks and friendships with a team of people who are passionate about a career at MinterEllison
  • Access top tier perks such as first class premises, facilities and administrative support, in-house catering, gym access and much more!
