Intern Program

Applications for our 2022/2023 summer intern program have now closed.

If you would like to apply for our 2023/2024 summer intake, please submit your expression of interest here.

Be part of an award-winning firm,

invested in your future.

At T|W we know a thing or two about being a great employer, in fact, we've been awarded Employer of Choice at the New Zealand Law Awards for the past two consecutive years. It's recognition that we don't take lightly and we are genuinely invested in all of our people and their futures. As a summer intern, you'll see what makes T|W so special, we'll invest in you, just as much as you invest your time with us. We'll assign you a mentor to work closely with during your time at the firm, and pair you up with a buddy who will be your day-to-day contact. You'll get involved in community projects to gain real-life experience, attend our CPD lunches to supercharge your knowledge and learn how to build a bot with our legal tech software and training sessions. So what are you waiting for?

Our most recent recognition

  • 2021 NZ Law Awards - Law Firm of the Year
  • 2021 NZ Law Awards - Insolvency & Restructuring Deal of the Year
  • 2021 NZ Law Awards - Employer of Choice

Not only will you develop your legal skills and your knowledge, but you'll develop lasting connections within your intern group, and the wider firm. 




Coming on board with us as an intern is the best way to grow the skills you're learning at University and put them into practice. You'll be surrounded by specialists who want to see you succeed, and you'll always have someone available to help you.



Knowing what to expect during your first legal job will give you the confidence to throw yourself into your first year. A lot of our current staff started at the firm as grads themselves!
