Firm Profile

Robins Appleby LLP is a dynamic law firm located in the heart of downtown Toronto. We provide a full range of legal services to our clients including corporate-commercial, litigation, tax, estates and real estate. We pride ourselves on providing excellent client service by ensuring our clients are given access to the depth of experience needed for their legal needs, no matter how complex. With 26 hard-working lawyers and an outstanding team of law clerks and legal assistants, our firm embodies collegiality, collaboration and resourcefulness.


Summer Student Program

We hire two second year summer law students each summer. Through our stimulating summer student program, we aim to immerse our student in the practice of law by providing hands-on experience in every aspect of our practice and client relations. Our summer student is encouraged to become familiar with files and become actively involved from beginning to end. Our student is provided with the opportunity to participate in client meetings, attend court and participate in corporate and real estate transactions and closings. Our student is 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 our summer student will be a successful addition  to the firm and that he or she will return the following year as our articling student.

Summer Student Interview Process

We do not participate in the LSO OCIs/In Firm Interview Week process.  We will accept applications for summer student positions from March 5-10, once the LSO In Firm Interview Week concludes.  We will not accept applications sent before March 5.

Applicants should e-mail the following materials to

  • Cover letter
  • Resume
  • Transcripts
  • Reference letters (optional)


Interviews will be held remotely from March 22-23.



Articling Student Program

We hire two 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 student gains confidence, he or she is encouraged to take on a greater degree of responsibility and more challenging work.  Whether arguing motions, conducting client intake meetings or managing his or her own files, our articling student is given hands-on practical work, which adds important value to our firm. Articling students for the 2020-2021 articling term have been filled .
