Who we are:

The Supreme Court of New South Wales is the highest court in New South Wales and hears civil, criminal and appellate matters. The Supreme Court is responsible for the administration of justice in New South Wales.

Who you are:

You will be self-motivated, have an eye for detail and aspirations to build a great legal career by learning all that justice has to offer. You will be an energetic person with a can-do attitude. You will preferably have litigation experience and strong academics. You are the kind of person who acts with high levels of integrity and you will have a desire to be involved in the administration of justice. The right person must be resilient to deal with the kind of matters that come before the Supreme Court, be the kind of person who can make accurate decisions based upon evidence put before the Court and should be prepared to see more applications for probate in one day than would be seen by practitioners in a lifetime of practice!

  • conduct mediations under the court-annexed mediation scheme;
  • sit in court as an acting registrar to conduct directions hearings and to hear interlocutory applications when needed;
  • determine chamber applications, for example, the enforcement of judgments, granting leave to issue subpoenas, making orders for substituted service; and
  • provide procedural information to registry staff, litigants and practitioners.

Essential requirements:

  • be admitted as a legal practitioner in NSW;
  • have at least five years post admission experience as a lawyer in NSW;
  • demonstrated highly developed legal skills and capabilities (advocacy experience is desirable);
  • sound knowledge and understanding of the Supreme Court Act 1970, Civil Procedure Act 2005, related rules and practice and procedure;
