Paralegal Jobs


paralegal - australian federal police

The AFP is implementing a casual workforce Paralegal Program aimed at second year and beyond law students. Law students entering the AFP casual workforce Paralegal Program will gain experience working in a government legal practice which manages complex and sensitive law enforcement, national security and civil litigation matters. It will be an excellent development opportunity for students as they will be exposed to a variety of work across different areas of law while building on skills gained through their studies.

The AFP provides a flexible work environment which will enable the successful candidates to adapt working hours to fit in with their studies.

The AFP has two legal teams with lawyers located across Australia, including in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane. The work undertaken by the legal teams, like that of the AFP, is rewarding and very challenging and contributes significantly to the work of the AFP and our officers located in some 40 countries.

The legal teams have very strong professional oversight and development programs, and our lawyers are typically sourced from leading national firms, the Attorney-General’s department and the Offices of Commonwealth and State Prosecutors. One team undertakes proceeds of crime litigation (civil in nature), with litigators appearing as solicitors on the record, while the other team provides legal services in relation to national security, police operations, privacy, Freedom of Information, commercial and employment law.
