"Clerking has given me the opportunity to put my knowledge into practice in real-life scenarios. Working as a Clerk has provided the practical framework that a lecture theatre could never quite demonstrate. The support and guidance from the team has been a priceless experience in gaining real-life knowledge of the reality of work as a lawyer.

With exposure to a number of areas of law, my experience as a Clerk has also been a valuable tool in deciding which pathway to take my career and which area of law I am interested in practising."

– Catherine Kanellos, 2021 Law Clerk


“I commenced at Andersons Solicitors on a short placement (PLT) whilst still completing my studies and moved to a clerk position after that before being admitted to practice. Being a clerk prior to practice and having exposure to the day-to-day activities of a practitioner is uniquely valuable and something which is not, and cannot, be taught in a lecture theatre.

On a more practical note, I always felt that the environment at Andersons is both positive and supportive and allows clerks to interact with practitioners at all levels and their contributions being valued by the firm.”

– Antony Boonen, 2019 Law Clerk


“Clerking at Andersons has been an invaluable opportunity to develop practical legal skills in a friendly and nurturing environment. Working across the firm’s various practice areas has given me an insight into how each area operates in practice, and allowed me to learn from the firm’s wide array of knowledgeable professionals.

Every day as a clerk comes with new challenges and experiences, and working alongside the supportive team at Andersons has been the perfect environment to develop important skills for practice.”

– Kira Millikan, 2021 Law Clerk
