Articling Student Programme
The Calgary office hires 2-3 students for its Articling Programme.
Our students are exposed to a wide variety of experiences during their articling year. Students are rotated two to three times a year among our solicitor and litigation departments. Our students are given the opportunity to, among other things, assist and accompany lawyers to discoveries, hearings, trials, mediations, commercial deal closings and client meetings.
In addition to various assignments for students, our office offers training in substantive law and other areas. Students are invited and encouraged to attend all student, as well as firm-wide, in-house continuing legal education seminars. Highlights of our continuing legal education programming include small claims procedures, drafting pleadings, managing files, mergers and acquisitions, tax and corporate, oil and gas, wills and estates, and a real estate law series.
We encourage our students to participate in all aspects of firm life, including the firm’s social activities, such as the golf day and informal social get-togethers.
Students are paired with a partner, who acts as their principal and an associate, who acts as their mentor.
We evaluate our students’ progress through a formal evaluation process, which occurs halfway and near the end of the articling year.
