A boutique that markets itself as being at the forefront of legal services in Western Sydney is offering work experience cadetships to local law students.
Coleman Greig is offering legal work experience to fist year law students from Western Sydney University (WSU) who finished year 12 at a high school in Parramatta, the Hills or the greater west.
The firm has used Twitter as one of the main platforms to advertise the five-year program, in partnership with WSU law school.
The firm is promoting the cadetship as a "remarkable opportunity for students to combine their legal studies with quality work experience".
“This program aims to offer the successful cadets an invaluable educational experience and powerful mentors to assist in the pursuit of their career in the legal profession,” a description of the program on the firm website says.
“We believe that our program will offer you a real opportunity to experience the legal environment firsthand, build relationships with staff and clients, and provide a balanced approach to work and life.”
According to Coleman Greig, the cadets will be employed by the firm on a casual basis for the duration of the program.
Cadets are to sign on and stay with the firm for the duration of their degree and rotate through different teams.
No full-time employment at Coleman Greig is guaranteed after the program ends.
“The best part of the rotation program is that it gives them the opportunity to apply the knowledge they are acquiring at university in a real work environment,” the firm said.
Applications for the cadetship program are open until close of business today (Friday, 17 March).
