Student Programs

Summer Student Program

We hire two to three second year summer law students each summer. Through our stimulating summer student program, we aim to immerse our students in the practice of law by providing hands-on experience in every aspect of our practice and client relations.

  • Our summer students are encouraged to become familiar with files and become actively involved from beginning to end.
  • Our students are provided with the opportunity to participate in client meetings, attend court and participate in corporate and real estate transactions and closings.
  • Our students are assigned to a mentor, but will have the opportunity to work with lawyers in all departments over the course of the summer; there is no formal rotation system in place.

It is our hope that our summer students will become successful additions to our firm and that they will return the following year as our articling students.

Whether you’re looking for a summer student position or an articling position with us, you’ll be working alongside our team of incredible lawyers within the different groups.

Articling Student Program

We hire two to three articling students each year. Our articling program is an extension of our summer student program in that it is flexible, stimulating and best suited to self-motivated candidates. As our articling students gain confidence, they are encouraged to take on a greater degree of responsibility and more challenging work.  Whether arguing motions, conducting client intake meetings or managing files, our articling students are given hands-on practical work, which adds important value to our firm. 

Articling students for the 2025-2026 articling term has been filled.
