Your Clerkship Program
A clerkship is the ideal opportunity for you to explore what we have to offer. Not only will you gain insight into a career in law, you will meet our people, sample our culture and determine if K&L Gates is the right career choice for you.

As a law student in your penultimate year at university, this is an opportunity to gain practical work experience through participation in client meetings, court visits and involvement in real legal work.
