The Redenbach Lee Clerkship Program offers a unique and hands-on experience for clerks that provides insight into working as a graduate at the firm. The experience has been carefully moulded and designed to provide broad exposure to a range of work and challenging, to give you a head start in your legal career.
Upon commencement of your Clerkship, you will be paired with a Supervising Partner and member of our team, who will support you throughout your placement. Our clerks will be invited to our induction program that will further familiarise them with our systems, processes and values.
The work offered to clerks will be varied, fulfilling and interesting. Our firm is involved in a number of large scale contracts, ranging from construction matters, to property acquisitions, and even involvement with sporting clubs and members. Our regular clients include NSW Councils and statutory authorities, as well as large commercial businesses including developers, professional sports clubs and entertainment venues in Sydney.
During your Clerkship at Redenbach Lee you may undertake tasks including:
- Undertake meaningful work for real clients
- Attend client meetings
- Observe court proceedings
- Brief barristers
- Draft correspondence and court documents
- Conduct legal research
The Clerkship will be based in the firm’s Phillip St office, just moments away from the Supreme Court of New South Wales. The program will include a short-term rotation either working with, or where possible at, the firm’s Broken Hill office, allowing a high-level of client interaction with several of the firm’s major clients whilst also encouraging clerks to reach beyond their comfort zone to truly dive into the commercial law.
