Work Experience Opportunities for Law Students
This programme is a partnership between ADLS and a number of New Zealand university law students' societies. It aims to promote part-time paid and volunteer work experience opportunities available within law firms, to 4th and 5th year law students. ADLS expects that where unpaid positions are offered, that these are genuine learning experiences of between 1 - 4 weeks of duration. If the law student is to do work that an employee would otherwise do, then ADLS would expect that to be offered as a paid opportunity. A guideline on what ADLS considers best practice for work experience positions can be viewed here.
If you are an Auckland, Waikato, Wellington or Canterbury-based lawyer or law firm and wish to post an opportunity on the noticeboard for a placement, please click here.
