We hire 3-4 second year summer law students each year, in accordance with LSO guidelines and deadlines. We accept applications by viLawPortal to the attention Emily Lawrence, one of our partners and the Director of our Student Program.
We conduct on-campus interviews at McGill University, Osgoode Hall Law School, Queen’s University, University of Toronto, Western University, and occasionally at other schools. We reserve several in-firm interview slots for students from schools where we do not conduct OCIs. We advise selected candidates of our intention to offer in-firm interviews about one week before Call Day. We do not hold cocktail parties during in-firm recruitment, and rarely invite students to dinner because we prefer interviews that focus on the skills and abilities of candidates. In 2021, all of our interviews will be virtual.
We hire articling students on occasion. Please see How to Apply for available summer and articling positions. We do not have positions for first year law summer students or for students prior to law school. We do not accept interns.
Salary will be competitive with other law firms in downtown Toronto. We provide a smartphone, and also offer a dental, health and life insurance plan, and a subsidized health club membership. Articling students will also receive full salary and tuition during the Bar Admission Course, and paid vacation during their articling term.
