What, You Have Never Worked in a Law Firm Before?

No problem. If we've hired you, then you will have skills and talents that we think will make you a good lawyer.

The rest is mostly nurture. We provide our students with professional development and training. The front end of each articling year is always loaded with mandatory and comprehensive computer training, Westlaw training (sorry, Quicklaw fans, we just switched), internal and external, electronic and hard copy, library orientation, docketing and associated accounting training.

Don't worry, once you start working for lawyers, you will look fondly back on those first few weeks of training (and wish you had paid more attention).

As the year progresses, we hold Lunch & Learn seminars conducted in house by our lawyers (recently they have been virtual so they are BYOL events). Students' attendance at external seminars or presentations by LSO, CBA, and other institutions is encouraged and, if they fit the budget we have for the students, funded.
