Media release

Mallesons launches Facebook page for law students

- First top-tier Australian law firm to actively use social media for recruitment drive -


Mallesons, a leading law firm in the Asian region, today launched its Facebook page to help recruit law students for its forthcoming intake of summer clerks.  It forms part of the firm’s active approach to using social media.

The page is called ‘The Real Deal’ and allows law students to find out about the opportunities for clerkships and graduate roles and gives them an inside view into what life is like at the firm, including our people, offices, structure and what makes us different.

Members of staff are Facebook Ambassadors, and are responsible for managing the page, monitoring and responding to comments. 

Jason Watts, Mergers & Acquisitions Partner said: “Facebook is a natural choice for us.  It is where graduates expect to find out more about the firm and is much less formal than our website, and other material.  We hope that it gives law students, and anyone else who wants to ‘like’ us, a true insight into life at the Firm.

Editor’s notes:

1) If visitors to the Mallesons Facebook page ‘like’ the page, they will receive updates and have access to the site.  We understand that Facebook is primarily a social tool.  It’s for this reason we’re not interested in reading anyone’s profile.   By ‘liking’ the firm, it does not allow anyone to see profiles who didn’t already have access to them.

2) Facebook page is one of a number of social media channels used by the firm which also includes Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.

3) Mallesons is a leading law firm in the Asian region.  It creates value and manages risk by providing outstanding service to leading organisations.
