Kennedys in Australia launches its first graduate program

Global law firm Kennedys is pleased to announce the launch of its first graduate program in Australia, with an initial intake in Sydney and Melbourne in July 2022.

The twelve-month program will see graduates rotate across four practice areas working with Insurance, Injury, Commercial and Healthcare teams.

With senior lawyers as their mentors and supervisors, candidates are fully supported throughout the program which includes leave for their studies and funding for Practical Legal Training ‘PLT’ via The College of Law.  

During their 12 months at Kennedys, successful candidates will have the opportunity to attend mediations and settlement conferences, assist with trial preparations and gain first-hand experience in creating, reviewing, researching and handling a plethora of legal documents and processes.

An additional offering of the program is planned for early 2023. Application details will be shared on Kennedys Early Careers page.

“This is an exciting time for Kennedys in Australia” says Managing Partner Matt Andrews.

“Our practice has more than doubled in the past five years, and the launch of our graduate program continues this growth trajectory and strengthens our commitment to nurturing our staff at every stage of their careers.”

“We look forward to welcoming our first round of graduates”.

Applications for the July 2022 program are open from 11 April 2022 to 29 April 2022, with details on future intakes including those in Perth, to be announced shortly. More information on the program is available to read here.
