LegalVitae @ The Law Society of New South Wales

Posted 2 February 2017

LegalVitae is a national law-specific jobs portal which is free for students and will provide an exhaustive list of internship, clerkship, graduate employment and other opportunities across Australia. It is the first and only site to do so.
