About Allens

is a leading international law firm with a proud 200-year heritage of shaping the future for our clients, our people and the communities in which we work. From playing a pioneering role in the development of legislation and regulatory frameworks in the Asian region, to acting on numerous ‘firsts’ across a range of industry and community issues, it is in our DNA to make a difference and help shape what our world looks like.

Our alliance with Linklaters connects our clients and teams with an international network of legal leaders that spans 41 offices in 26 countries, and opportunities for our people to build international careers.
We have been recognised as the #1 law graduate employer by the Australian Association of Graduate Employers (AAGE) and a top law employer by Prosple and GradConnection and the Australian Financial Review. Our clerkship program has recently been named Australia’s top internship (large program) by the AAGE.
We aspire to be the strategic legal adviser clients want to have by their side and people want to work for. Our people go further to support our clients, using sharp commercial insight and creativity to enrich long‑standing relationships and build new ones. And we go further for each other and for our community, working to make ourselves and each other the best we can be. We’re people you want to work with – generous with our time and ready to help. No matter what the future holds, we’re in it together.
Our clerkship program
For a head start in your career, apply for a clerkship in our Sydney office. You’ll work with some of the most experienced lawyers in Australia and encounter first-hand the type of work you could do as a lawyer at Allens. You’ll get to be part of a team, assisting with real matters. Your performance coach and buddy will be there to support you, help you make the most of your clerkship, get to know our people, and thrive.
We believe that we stand out as an employer because of our high-quality technical training and excellent learning environment. We’ll work with you to develop your understanding of commercial law and build your skills, providing the foundation you need to become a successful lawyer. You’ll be involved in some of the market’s most complex domestic and global transactions.
We offer ten and five week clerkships in summer:
  • Ten week clerkship over summer. Monday 25 November 2024 – Friday 14 February 2025. This will give you the chance to experience two different practice groups.
  • Five week clerkship starting in either the first or second rotation. You will have the opportunity to work in one practice group.
Our clerkship program is a stepping stone to bigger things – most clerks go on to become graduates with us. Here is a quick rundown of what you can look forward to:
  • a personalised induction program that introduces you to our people and the work we do;
  • on-the-job training with support from a partner and a junior lawyer, who will act as your performance coach and buddy;
  • learning opportunities across practice areas and partners, as we don’t work in silos;
  • the chance to work on real matters with many of Australia’s and the world’s top 100 companies;
  • the opportunity to get involved in community and pro bono work, and learn about our committees and interest groups;
  • the chance to learn about working within our alliance with Linklaters and about secondment opportunities;
  • seminars that will build a strong foundation of skills to help you become an excellent lawyer and thrive in our ever‑changing world;
  • social events, where you will really get to know us; and
  • the opportunity to network with some of the best in the profession.
At Allens, our culture is made up of unique backgrounds and varying life experiences. We celebrate our people’s differences across gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, cultural backgrounds, First Nations communities, and family and caring arrangements. We encourage applicants from all backgrounds. If you require adjustments to fully participate in our program, please contact us at
