Connolly Suthers has a long history of employing graduates from Townsville’s James Cook University.

We believe that by supporting Townsville’s northern university, the firm supports its graduates, most of whom have been born and bred in this part of the world. We see this as a way of supporting our local community. This means these young people already know the north, they know its industries and they know the people.

At Connolly Suthers, we seek to hire people who share our dedication to our clients, enthusiasm for hard-fought cases, and desire for intellectual challenge. 


Our lawyers have the opportunity to practise law - not just watch others do it. If you are eager to gain hands-on experience and excited by the prospect of practising law at a high level you should contact Connolly Suthers. We offer lawyers:

  • Complex, diverse and challenging cases;
  • Significant case-management responsibility;
  • Client contact;
  • Mentoring by experienced and dynamic lawyers;
  • Meaningful participation in firm management.

Lawyers interested in becoming a part of our team should contact our Operations Manager, Brendan Cahill.
