Life at Finlaysons

Comments from our clerks now working with us.

“Finlaysons has provided me with the perfect “launch pad” from which to explore the legal profession and start an exciting career. Spending time in several practice areas, I have been guided by many of South Australia’s leading and most experienced practitioners, working collaboratively to provide clear, concise and timely solutions to often commercially challenging legal problems. In this way, I have been allowed the responsibility and moreover, encouraged, to apply the skills developed at university in making a real and valuable contribution to the firm.”   Nick Langridge


“My clerkship at Finlaysons has been a truly invaluable experience, and one that that has given me plenty of insight into areas such as commercial, litigation, workplace and property law.  From day one, I have been fortunate to be able to work with associates and partners on a variety of different matters and learn a practical side of law that law school simply doesn’t teach you! Due to the length of the clerkship, I have also been able to experience and engage with the firm culture, form relationships with people I work with and get to know others through seminars, networking and social events.  The clerkship program and the way it is structured (in length, buddy/coach support and internal trainings) makes this a unique experience and really shows that Finlaysons cares and invests in the growth of its clerks – and my experience has not been any different!” Dorcas Wong


“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Finlaysons so far. The structure of the Finlaysons clerkship allows prolonged exposure to a range of different practice areas and work on a wide variety of tasks. Periodical clerk training sessions with partners and special counsel has been extremely valuable learning experiences and the flexibility afforded to align my working days with my university timetable is another great aspect”.  Ned Hewitson
