Bristow Legal offers law students the opportunity to work as paralegals and to gain experience in all aspects of working in a busy legal practice. Our paralegals are given extensive training, and assist with research tasks, preparing chronologies, drafting and reviewing contractual documents and considering and summarising new legislation. Our lawyers also take a mentoring role, and explain the context of the tasks that our paralegals perform.
Because we operate a boutique legal practice, paralegals benefit from being closely involved with a wide variety of matters and clients. You will not spend weeks preparing lists of documents, or only working in very narrow legal areas. We are also very flexible and make sure you always have time off to study, and for exams. As a bonus, you can also drive to work, and park for free, and we have a great coffee machine.
We are delighted and proud that past paralegals have gone on to be appointed as associates to Federal Court and High Court judges, and to obtain scholarships to study law at Oxford and Cambridge.
