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.

We do not participate in the LSO OCIs/In Firm Interview Week process. For summer 2023, we will accept summer student applications from November 10-15, once the LSO In Firm Interview Week concludes. We will not accept applications sent before November 10.

Articling Student Program

We hire two or 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 that our clients appreciate and value.

Articling positions for the 2022-2023 articling term have been filled.

If you have questions about our student programs, please e-mail Raili O'Born (she/her), Director of Administration, at No phone calls please.
