Are you a recent law graduate or newly admitted solicitor seeking real, practical experience in legal practice?

The Auckland Community Law Centre offers an Internship Programme for law graduates who wish to gain experience in a law firm and an opportunity to learn about the community law centres’ work. You will support our lawyers with legal research and drafting, and even have direct, supervised client contact.

Your internship will last for three or four months of full-time or near full-time work. You will work for at least 30 hours per week, but we are able to be relatively flexible to accommodate interns’ other commitments, such as part time work.

The Internship Programme is unpaid. However, in the three or four months that you would be an intern, you will be expected to use part of your time seeking a full time legal position. Many of our former volunteers and interns now have successful careers in a wide range of legal roles.

We will also mentor you, advising and supporting you during your internship as you take your first steps on your career ladder.

If you are interested in our Internship Programme, please email your CV to and enter ‘Internship Programme’ in the subject line. We accept applications on a rolling basis.
