Clerkship Guide

The Seasonal Clerkship Guide is an annual publication created by the Careers and Development Portfolio in conjunction with a number of law firms. These guides provide you with insights into the Clerkship application process, various first-hand experiences of both being a Clerk and a Graduate, and also insights into working within the various practice areas. 

These guides are published and distributed free of charge to students at the Melbourne Law School.

We would like to thank all the sponsors that have made the publication of these guides possible. 

Purely Dicta


Purely Dicta is the student-run publication of the Law Students’ Society, providing insight on experiences both inside and outside the law school. Our articles range from interviews with students, professors and alumni to reviews and recommendations about food, art, music, travel, fashion and film.

Purely Dicta’s aim is to celebrate the wide-ranging interests and pursuits of people in our community and provide students with a weekly break from those heavy casebook readings. At the end of semester two, we publish a hardcopy collection of all the articles featured online throughout the year.
