Indigenous Legal Internship Program

Allens is currently accepting expressions of interest for our Indigenous Legal Internship Program across the firm’s Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth offices. The program, which has been running for 15 years, is an opportunity for second-year students and above to find out more about working in a commercial legal environment. Previous interns have gone on to become paralegals, clerks and graduates at Allens.

In previous years we have run a two-week internship program, however, due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and the restrictions around this, the structure of this year’s internship may vary. With staff currently working remotely, dates for the program are yet to be finalised.

As part of the Indigenous Legal Internship Program, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • meet our partners and lawyers;
  • join a practice group, where you’ll be allocated a buddy, a mentor and a performance coach;
  • learn about the work we do and get practical experience of what our clients want; and
  • hear tips on our clerkship process and what life is like as a graduate at Allens.
  • We encourage interested Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander law students to submit an expression of interest so that we can keep in touch regarding the Internship.
