Our Clerkship Program was established to provide a unique practical learning experience for our Clerks, within a supportive environment. Here is what our most recent Summer Clerks had to say about their experience:
The Clerkship program at Lynch Meyer offers a comprehensive education in the practical aspects of the legal profession. The rotational structure ensures you have sufficient exposure to all practice areas of the firm, enabling you to gain valuable insight into the particular area you ultimately elect to pursue. There is a clear collegiate and welcoming culture, with all practitioners willing to delegate interesting and challenging tasks from the outset. Your responsibilities span from extensive research and drafting advice, to summarising pertinent cases and consistently attending court across various jurisdictions. Throughout the clerkship program, I felt supported and valued. The culture of Lynch Meyer places a premium on taking initiative, while equally, providing you with the necessary assistance to succeed. For any ambitious student looking to enhance their knowledge acquired at law school, I completely endorse the Lynch Meyer clerkship program.

The summer clerkship program at Lynch Meyer was organised to give us a structured exposure to all practice areas in the firm. The work we participated in was diverse and exciting. I assisted with research on legal principles and procedural issues, drafting advice on a range of interesting matters and drafting articles on topical issues in law and policy. Some of the most valuable experience was gained by shadowing experienced practitioners in client meetings, mediations and court attendance. The partners and entire team at Lynch Meyer were incredibly welcoming and generous with their time to sit down and engage with us as clerks. The firm has a strong culture of comradery and we immediately became part of the team. We were encouraged to join in on social events and Christmas activities, which really added to the whole experience. For anyone wanting to gain an insight into the diverse practice of a commercial law firm, I would highly recommend a summer clerkship at Lynch Meyer.

My time as a summer clerk with Lynch Meyer was an invaluable opportunity to learn from many highly skilled and experienced practitioners. From the first minute to the last, I was welcomed and assisted by the friendly and patient practitioners at the firm. The rotating nature of the program is the perfect balance of structure and flexibility which allowed me to gain exposure to a variety of different practice areas. Whether it be attending court proceedings, sitting in on client meetings, preparing legal documents, or conducting legal research, every day of the program was different and engaging. Inclusion in the firm’s festive events provided a great opportunity to learn more about the wonderful people at the firm and made me feel like I was a part of the team. I am incredibly grateful for my time at Lynch Meyer and could not recommend the program more for students seeking to gain practical experience within a supportive environment.
