Summer Clerks

I thoroughly enjoyed interning for Preston Russell. Being a medium size firm, I have been able to work in many different areas of law to get a feel for each and find out which area I would like to practice in for my future career. Preston Russell offers a very friendly environment which made fitting in effortless. Georgia Woodward, Summer 2017 

Our summer clerking period runs from mid-November to mid-February and applications for positions close at the end of September.

Our Summer clerks are supervised by a Partner and can expect to undertake a variety of tasks, including:

  • research
  • drafting documents
  • opinion-writing

You will be included in any in-house training and will be shown how to use the Firm’s practice management and document management systems.

Depending on the practice area you are assigned to, you may be involved in the day-to-day running of client files, sitting in on client interviews and observing at Court.
