Indigenous Cadetship Program

We are committed to investing in the careers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander law students. 

Our cadetship program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students offers students a paid opportunity to build skills and gain valuable practical experience. The program is part of Colin Biggers & Paisley's Indigenous Engagement Strategy, which seeks to increase the employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within the law.


A legal cadet at Colin Biggers & Paisley will be a part-time employee for the duration of their law degree.  Cadets will work one or two days per week in our Sydney office, with flexibility around their availability each semester. 
Cadets will be given the opportunity to work in multiple practice areas and gain practical on-the-job training and skills development. Cadets will be supported to participate in training and professional development opportunities including attendances at courses and conferences. Cadets will be mentored and supported through their law degree.
