Summer Law @ AH

Anthony Harper is a top, internationally ranked, award winning law firm. With offices in Auckland and Christchurch we work with some of the largest national and international clients helping them advance their business goals. Our summer law programme offers you an insight into a large and progressive law firm. You will do real work, work with experienced partners and build both your professional and personal skills. And you will do it with a smile on your face.

The summer law opportunity

The summer law programme runs from November to February and you will be given the opportunity to rotate through a number of our specialised practice areas. These range from corporate and commercial, IP, health and safety, immigration, employment, litigation, banking and trust and asset planning (amongst others). Supported by a buddy and by a team of junior and senior lawyers you will do real work, for real clients with real responsibility. This will be fully immersive and complemented by formal and informal training sessions, access to key stakeholders, networking opportunities and social activities.

If you like to dig in and get the most out of every opportunity, you will enjoy working with us. Our hands-on, collaborative approach means you will quickly find yourself an invaluable part of the team you work with.
The recruitment process The application process starts with you forwarding us your CV, academic transcript and a covering letter. The covering letter is important as it gives you a chance to shine and differentiate yourself from the competition. If we are lucky enough to interview you, be prepared to discuss the information in your CV. We would hope that you also have some insightful questions to ask us about Anthony Harper. We are a friendly bunch of people so we will work hard to put you at ease and make you feel comfortable.
