What our people say

“Clerking at Civic Legal is a great opportunity to experience a diverse range of work in a supportive environment. Working alongside local governments means a wide variety of issues arise, which guarantees work across many different areas of law. I have completed a multitude of tasks ranging from legal research to meeting with clients. At each stage I have felt supported as the lawyers provide detailed background briefs, clear instructions and comprehensive feedback that has enabled me to grow in competency and confidence in completing legal tasks. I would fully recommend a clerkship at Civic Legal!”
