Currently the following opportunities are available:

Interns

We offer a limited number of internship opportunities each year for law students or junior lawyers wishing to gain experience in a busy specialist law firm. Our interns typically work for us for a period of between one week and two months and assist both with billable work that the firm is undertaking for clients and with non-billable activities (e.g. marketing). We do not usually pay interns but provide a light lunch each day and contribute to the intern’s costs of travelling to and from the office.



Support a Case

We often take on community cases, where we assist small, generally rural, communities defend the ecological and social fabric of their areas. While we do our best to keep costs to a minimum, bringing a legal case inevitably costs these communities substantially. You can support our community cases by contributing directly to them so that they can allocate their funds most appropriately.
