We believe in finding strength in expertise, not numbers. That’s why we only recruit the best.


More than just befriending the binding machine.

Get a glimpse of what life is like as a member of BlackOak, before you take the plunge. We don’t have any special, pre-planned attachment programmes; our interns get to assist on real cases and see us for who we truly are – lawyers who love what they do and who are pretty darn good at it.
We are also proud to be able to say that most of our lawyers began their careers with the team as interns.

(under our watchful eye).

At BlackOak, you don’t have to wait years before getting to do something exciting. We expose our trainee solicitors to all aspects of lawyering – from substantive legal practice to file and client management.
The runway is short and the learning curve steep, but we believe that the best diamonds are those forged under good pressure. Not for the faint-hearted or the unambitious.
