The Government Legal Network (GLN) Summer Clerk Programme provides talented law students with an exceptional opportunity to see right into the workings of a government legal team. The Summer Clerks are placed in various government agencies which provide a welcoming, supportive environment in which they can grow their skills and make helpful connections.

You will benefit from ‘on the job’ work experience as well as site visits to Parliament and courts, meetings with Judges and panel discussions with the Crown's most senior lawyers. The work our Summer Clerks enjoy is challenging and meaningful and our social programme injects fun and camaraderie into a rewarding professional experience.
