Trainee Lawyer Program

Maurice Blackburn's Trainee Lawyer Program is designed to combine your formal training with invaluable hands-on experience. The program provides a wide range of training aimed at familiarising you with all aspects of plaintiff law.

The program encourages active participation and contribution, enabling you to be rewarded with excellent training opportunities, tangible professional development, and a real sense of accomplishment.

Most trainee lawyers can expect to spend one rotation in a suburban or regional office, and one rotation in the city office.
