What is CR Engage?
CR Engage is our seasonal clerkship program, open to law students in their penultimate or final year of study.
What we offer
Coulter Roache offers up to 21 seasonal clerkship places each year. Each clerkship runs for a period of two weeks. A Coulter Roache seasonal clerkship will help you bridge the gap between theory and practice. For some, this has been a successful pathway to a Graduate position and career with our firm.
What’s it like to be a seasonal clerk at Coulter Roache?
In 2017, Coulter Roache team members attended the Deakin Experience and Employment Expo. Rohan Kelly, one of our Law Graduates, spoke to Deakin about his experiences of working at Coulter Roache and offered some advice for students considering applying for a seasonal clerkship.

What we look for
Smart, energetic law students with strong academic results in law. You will have a professional manner, be friendly, down to earth and able to engage easily with both colleagues and clients. Being involved in the Geelong community in any way will be an advantage.
What you get
An in-depth understanding of what our firm does and a chance to see if you might enjoy working with a firm like Coulter Roache in the future. You will get hands-on practical legal experience, which could involve drafting correspondence and court documents, reviewing and considering legislation and case law, and observing our lawyers conduct client meetings, mediations and court. During this time we will also learn about your abilities, skills and career aspirations. While completing the Seasonal Clerkship, you will have the opportunity to be involved in all our team activities including social events, celebrations and community involvement.
