Join a diverse group of globally minded graduates for our 18-month program. Expect to take on real responsibility, learn non-stop and feel supported at every stage. Build friendships and personal connections that can last a lifetime.
Three different seats
You will rotate through three six-month rotations: two domestic and one overseas. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet our teams, learn about their work and explore different areas of the law. We support domestic rotations across our Melbourne and Sydney offices to build your connectivity across our close-knit Australia team.
Support and development
Everyone needs back-up. Our graduates are assigned a supervisor, mentor and a buddy for each rotation, whose job it is to expand the skills, knowledge and experience you need to become the best lawyer that you can be.
Your training includes some formal elements, to support your qualification to practice, such as completing modules of the Practice Legal Training provided by the College of Law over the course of the first six months of the graduate program. We also run in-house training, specialist seminars and workshops for graduates, which you are encouraged to attend.
Training is also a great opportunity to meet new colleagues from other teams and start building a network of contacts within the Firm, an essential ingredient in your career development.
Live and work overseas
To complement the global mindset that underpins everything that we do, you’ll get the chance to experience working in another White & Case office in Asia or the Middle East. Experience living in a different country, gain valuable insight into the working practices of another jurisdiction and build professional contacts that will last throughout your career.
Wherever you go, we’ll help you relocate and you’ll stay in regular contact with the Early Careers team during your overseas seat. You’ll receive the same level of personal training, including a dedicated supervisor and a cost-of-living salary adjustment.
