The Insight program comprises of 4 sessions:

  2. KWM in Practice – in this 'speed dating' style event you will get to meet some of KWM's leading market experts

  4. Alumni session – giving you the exclusive insight into clerkship applications.

Upon completion of the Insight Program you will have gained a solid understanding of a top-tier commercial law firm and gained exclusive insight into the recruitment process to help you feel prepared and confident when applying for clerkship positions. You will also become part of the Insight Program alumni.

The Insight program runs in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. Applications are welcome from university students who are in their pre-penultimate year of their university degree.

If I am unsuccessful for Insight, does that mean I will automatically be unsuccessful for a clerkship at KWM?

Absolutely not. The Insight Program is a highly competitive process due to the limited spots available. Even if you are unsuccessful for a place on the Insight Program we encourage you to apply for a seasonal clerkship with us and would like to assure you that an unsuccessful outcome for the Insight Program should not be taken as an indication of unsuitability for a clerkship.
