Accelerate your knowledge, skills and networks

The start of your career requires a vast amount of learning as you switch from study to the workplace. MinterEllisonRuddWatts’ curated development programme is designed to fast-track your transition – developing your knowledge, skills and networks.

Your professional development begins in your first week, when you will experience a week-long induction programme. You’ll learn about our firm’s history and unique culture, market strategy and key initiatives (including leading artificial intelligence and customisable innovation for New Zealand’s legal sector). You will also have training sessions to arm you with skills required to gain maximum benefit from working at MinterEllisonRuddWatts.

The development programme will see you participating in sessions to build your legal knowledge, technical skills, personal leadership talent, professional expertise, and wellbeing. Development continues throughout your career with MinterEllisonRuddWatts.

A summer clerkship is a fantastic way to experience the life of a corporate lawyer.
