DLA Piper (Canada) LLP hires summer students and articled students in each of its offices as needed and in accordance with local regulatory guidelines. Each office recruits its own students, but the Student Program is coordinated at the national level by our Director of Associate Lawyer & Student Development.

At DLA Piper (Canada) LLP, we seek to hire outstanding students who will remain with the firm when they become lawyers, and contribute to the future of the firm. We are committed to providing the best possible training and professional development programs to our students; we want all of our students, at the completion of their articles, to be highly capable professionals ready and keen to commence practice.

We have developed distinct professional development programs for our summer students and for our articled students, recognizing the different levels of experience between each group. We present a series of nationally coordinated weekly seminars for our summer students between May and August and a separate series of seminars for our articled students during the articling year. All of our students are welcome to participate in other firm-wide professional development initiatives and practice group meetings of interest.

The articling experience is meant to be rewarding and positive, as well as challenging, and we foster and maintain an open, respectful, inclusive and team-oriented workplace where students are recognized, and treated, as valued professionals. Our students are encouraged to get involved in the life of the firm through participation in events like charity fundraisers, holiday parties, team sports and other social activities.
