We accept summer student applications through the viLawPortal for each of our Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary offices. Please refer to that portal for the requirements and timelines for each jurisdiction’s application process. While the details and specific timing of the application process are different among cities, the overall process is generally the same.
Please note that we only participate in the second-year summer student recruitment process for each of our Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary offices. We recruit and hire when students are in the first semester of their second year of law school for the summer after they complete their second year. We abide by all rules established by the law society in each jurisdiction as well as any voluntary protocols established by the cities in which we recruit. As we aim to grow our firm through our summer student program, we don’t generally do a separate articling recruit.
We participate in On-Campus Interviews (OCIs) at many (but not all) law schools across the country. We do consider applications from candidates from schools in whose OCI process we do not participate. If we want to meet with a candidate from a school in whose OCI process we do not participate, we will invite the candidate in directly for an in-firm interview. Students should check with their law school to confirm whether we participate in their law school’s OCI process. We also participate in the NCA OCI Day in Toronto organized by the NCA Network.
