Government Legal Network Summer Clerk Programme

Wellington - Wellington City

If you are keen for a summer offering intellectual challenge, access to superb mentors and a sense of public service, we welcome your interest in the GLN Summer Clerk Programme.

The Government Legal Network (GLN) Summer Clerk Programme provides talented law students with an exceptional opportunity to see right into the workings of government.  Over a three month period, GLN clerks are immersed in the dynamic range of legal issues confronting the Crown and are exposed to a wide variety of learning and development opportunities - from those provided 'on the job' to site visits to Parliament and the higher courts, meetings with Judges and panel discussions with the Crown's most senior lawyers.

We view each clerkship as an opportunity to invest in the professional development of a future legal leader.  With this in mind, we are looking for applicants who demonstrate a strong sense of purpose, well-rounded technical skills, an enquiring mind, community spirit and enthusiasm.  

Prior to submitting your application, please read the job description attached to this listing.  It is important that you also read the application guidelines.  The guidelines are accessible on the GLN website and contain a list of participating agencies, detail about the assessment process and frequently-asked questions that will be helpful to you as you develop your application.

If, after reading the guidelines, you have any queries during the submission of your application please contact the GLN Team at:

All applications must include a covering letter, curriculum vitae and academic transcript submitted in pdf format.   Please use the ‘other’ field to upload your academic transcript.
