Graduates

King & Wood Mallesons is distinguishable from other law firms by the way we grow market-leading lawyers. Reach your full potential with our unique future-focussed training experience that incorporates legal tech, client centricity and technical excellence - all with a global lens. 

KWM graduates gain a broad range of experience with rotations across different practice areas as well as the opportunity to travel to other KWM centres in Australia and hopefully in the near future, back to our overseas offices!

Completion of your Practical Legal Training (PLT) is also part of the graduate program and is delivered online during your first eight months as a law graduate. It’s a customised, in-house program conducted in association with the College of Law and aligned to the work you’ll do with us.

If you have an intellectual curiosity, an international mind-set and ambition to work across a changing global landscape scroll down to find out more about the graduate experience and follow @kwmlaw on Instagram.
