Wonder what it's like to be a graduate at Hall & Wilcox? Our graduates share their insights.
After spending four months in the Pro Bono & Community team during his graduate year, Andrew has now settled permanently into the team. He takes us through a typical day, from drafting unfair dismissal applications to attending drop-in pro bono clinics, book-ended by firm-provided breakfast and a trivia quiz.
Jonathon Brooking’s first year out of university wasn’t what he expected. Jonathon quickly got used to working remotely, after COVID-19 forced lockdowns, and he took the opportunity to work in Legal Operations and learn more about our approach to Smarter Law.
Tamara takes us through a day in graduate life in our Melbourne office, from researching taxation rulings and helping establish a trust fund for a charity through to quiz and Friday night drinks.
Lauren shares her story as a graduate in our Brisbane office. One highlight was that our pro bono program allowed her to maintain connections with community legal services across matters outside her specific specialisation.
When Lily met her graduate colleagues in early 2020, little did she know it was the one of the last times she’d see 36 people in one room for over a year. She shares her very different ‘Cograd-19’ experience.
Charlie reflects on his time as a graduate in our Melbourne office. From growing up in Berriwillock to working in Collins Street, he believes your roots and educational experiences equip you better for your graduate year than you might think.
Originally from Adelaide, Nicholas completed his graduate year in our Darwin office. He reflects on what he’s learned through working in a busy practice and unique jurisdiction.
