Summer Clerk 2015/16
"With a culture focused on teamwork, dedication and development, HDY is a firm that engages and challenges its professionals"
The opportunity to be a part of a summer clerkship at HDY is a rewarding and career defining experience. Clerkship applications are an undeniably stressful process, however with HDY everything went as smooth as possible.
From the first time I visited the firm at the Summer Clerk Cocktail Evening, I knew the firm was the right place for me. The people were approachable, informative and most of all incredibly passionate about law.
During my clerkship at HDY I had the opportunity to complete three rotations, working in Property, Environment & Planning, Restructuring & Insolvency and Financial Services & Technology practice groups. The ability to rotate through three distinct groups gave me invaluable experience and insight into the diversity available in the day to day life of a lawyer. Attending meetings with corporate clients, going to court, preparing research memos and drafting notes were just a few of the broad array of tasks I completed during my clerkship.
Alongside the incredible professional experience were a wealth of social engagements. Playing in the weekly inter-firm sport competition, banding together for trivia and organising the end of clerkship party, the people you meet and memories you make will stay with you forever.
With a culture focused on teamwork, dedication and development, HDY is a firm that engages and challenges its professionals. If you would like to learn from leading industry lawyers, and develop your skills in a highly charged yet supportive environment, I would highly recommend applying at HDY.
