Joining Us

Talk to us

If you are interested in joining us from another firm, we welcome any discussions; we’re interested in working with the right people who share our approach. If you are looking for articles please forward your CV, a sample of your writing (e.g. a recent essay or article on a legal subject) and academic record to us at applications@dunster.co.za. The application intake period for candidates starting in 2025 is 1 May 2024 – 30 September 2024. While we endeavour to review all applications, due to high volumes we are unable to reply to each application. If you do not receive a reply by 31 October 2024 you may consider your application unsuccessful.

Please check our LinkedIn page for updates to our application process.

We invite potential candidates to join us for a day or two before entering into articles, it’s important to us that you’ll fit into our team, share our philosophy and enjoy working with us.

We encourage all our candidates to learn about the environment in which they are considering a career; law students often only learn about the internal environments of differing law firms after they have commenced articles; we encourage new entrants into the profession to consider the challenges discussed in the paper by Patrick J. Schiltz: On Being a Happy, Healthy, and Ethical Member of an Unhappy, Unhealthy, and Unethical Profession (Vanderbilt Law Review Vol. 52 at 871) .
