Careers

The NDSLS careers portfolio is designed to ensure that each of our members has the best possible chance of furthering their professional development by providing as many career based initiatives as possible. The NDSLS organises events targeted towards varied stages of an individual's career progression. 

The NDSLS Jobs Board is a newly developed initiative geared towards providing necessary information and opportunities to our members, by capitalising on the society's existing relationships. The publication of our Annual Careers Guide also looks to provide information and advice for members looking to begin their careers in the legal profession, geared specifically towards clerkship programs as well as practical legal training opportunities.
