Our aim is to connect students to the legal profession by organising expert panels, networking evenings and workshops so that MLS students can meet people in the industry and learn more about where the Juris Doctor degree can take them.

This year MULSS Careers will be hosting a Corporate Careers Panel and will be inviting Investment banks, Consulting Firms and other corporate organisations to attend. Later in the year we will have a Corporate Careers Workshop to help students prepare for applications opening early the following year.
This year MULSS Careers will be hosting a Government Careers Panel in Semester 1 where you’ll hear from lawyers working across both the Victorian and Federal Governments.
In Semester 2 there will be a Government Careers Information Session to help students prepare for graduate role applications opening early the following year.
Expert Panels are designed to give students an insight into specific commercial law practice areas and provide an opportunity for students to ask questions of leading practitioners.
Expert Panels run throughout Semester 1 and begin on Tuesday evenings at 6.30pm.
Each evening will consist of a moderated panel discussion followed by an audience Q&A and will conclude with a chance to network with firm representatives.
In 2021, the MULSS Careers Portfolio will host four Expert Panels:
– Mergers, Acquisitions and Capital Markets
– Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution
– IP and TMT
Seasonal Clerkship Seminars are designed to give you a deeper insight into individual firms, and to provide a forum to ask questions about recruitment, clerkship and graduate experiences, international opportunities and key practice areas.
