on the international stage
While many of our competitors have been busy merging with international firms and losing their identity and focus in the process, we've been busy strengthening ours. An important part of our vision and strategy is to build international networks and relationships across the world so we can provide our clients with global reach and local expertise.
We provide our people - including graduates - with many, wonderful opportunities to grow their skills across the globe. From New York to Tokyo, London and beyond - we have access to some of the world’s most exciting industries and institutions.
Graduate Secondment Program
Corrs has partnered with Japanese corporate law firm Anderson Mori & Tomotsune (AM&T) to offer its Foreign Legal Trainee (FLT) Program to our future graduates. Since 2013, five of our Graduates have lived and worked in Tokyo for 12 months and were given the amazing opportunity to further develop their legal skills while working overseas. As FLTs, they helped to prepare English language documentation with Japanese lawyers and work with a variety of clients, partners and associates across the firm’s practice areas.
We are now exploring other international secondments for our future Graduates and details of the next exciting opportunity will be announced soon!
International Secondment Program
Corrs’ International Secondment Program provides our lawyers with the rare opportunity to live and work overseas for a 6-12 month period. Secondments are arranged with premium law firms in a number of exciting jurisdictions, including the US, UK and Asia. Currently Corrs lawyers are posted in London, New York, Singapore, Mumbai, Jakarta, Beijing and more.
Corrs also offers world class scholarships to support professional international development. In nine years, the Corrs Scholarship Program has enabled almost 200 people to attend courses at some of the world’s most esteemed institutions, including Harvard, Stanford and INSEAD.
Recipients of the Corrs Scholarship for Individual Excellence travel around the globe to attend courses not just in law, but also in business, management, innovation and leadership. Each year the firm also awards one outstanding applicant the prestigious John Slattery Scholarship in recognition of exceptional performance and collaboration.
