Summer law programme

This is your opportunity to be part of a highly influential, successful law firm with an incredible market presence – a great place to begin.

Our summer law programme runs from November to February.

Our Summer Clerkship will provide you with an unrivalled opportunity to rotate through and fully immerse yourself in our internationally recognised practice areas, offering you the chance to do real work with real clients from the get go.

On top of this you will have a buddy and ongoing support from a diverse team of junior and senior lawyers as well as training sessions from some of New Zealand’s top legal experts.

We understand the importance of your Clerkship and are committed to providing you with a unique developmental experience, arming you with all of the tools you need to build a solid foundation for your legal career.

Our application process goes from 10 March through to 28 March. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Send us your CV, academic transcript and a covering letter. Let us know in your covering letter why you want to work for us.
  • A psychometric test – we’re keen to find out more about your personality and what makes you tick, and the sort of environment you thrive in.
  • An interview – If we are lucky enough to interview you, be prepared to discuss the information in your CV. We would hope that you also have some insightful questions to ask us about Anthony Harper.
  • You’ll also have the opportunity to meet us more informally and talk to our past graduates as well. We want to get to know you! We are a friendly bunch of people so we will work hard to put you at ease and make you feel comfortable.

Applications for our 2022/2023 Summer Law Programme have now closed.   Applications for our 2023/2024 Summer Law Programme open March 2023.
