It's that time of the year when you, as budding lawyers, are looking for summer clerk gigs. We’re looking for a few amazing students who share our passion and interest in tech, media and IP to join the team.  

It's important for you try a mix of legal work while you're still figuring out how you want to use your law degree. As a corporate commercial firm specialising in tech, media and IP, our summer clerk programme lets you get a taste across corporate, commercial and litigation roles working for tech, media and IP clients.

Working with our amazing team, you’ll expand your horizons while learning from the best tech media and IP lawyers around, with the added bonus of working with clients you’ll know and care about.  

About our programme

Our summer clerk programme is aimed at students in their penultimate year of study, however we are always looking for great talent. While you may not be looking for a summer clerk role, we do take on graduates and having quality students apply will at least get you on our radar.

Video 1: A video about you and how you see yourself fitting into the team.

Video 2: What interests you, specifically what interests you about the work that we do. As a specialist Tech, Media and IP firm, we want to gauge your interest in our areas, and make sure you know what you’re getting yourself in for.

HGM Summer Clerk Event & Start Date

Shortlisted candidates are invited to meet our awesome team (subject to restrictions). This gives you a chance to meet us (our entire team are invited) and ask anyone in the team if the firm is as great as it seems (it is). It’s also a great opportunity to have an informal chat (not that our interviews are really all that formal)to get to know you.

The programme starts in November (after you've completed your exams), through until mid-February. You’ll also get a chance to enjoy some of the summer with a few weeks off over Christmas / New Year.
