The small size of our Montréal office allows us to delegate a high level of responsibility to our students. Our work environment fosters open communication and discussion among our lawyers and students.
All of the lawyers in the office provide mentorship and guidance to our students. The firm’s administrative resources are also available to students as necessary.
One feature that distinguishes us from many other major firms is the degree of responsibility our students and associates are encouraged to assume early in their careers. Students and associates are also encouraged to pursue their own professional interests and develop specialties. We provide them with the necessary resources and training to do so.
Workstations and Administrative Support
Each student is provided with a computer and an individual workstation. Legal assistants throughout the office provide assistance, as required.
Compensation and Benefits
Our students' salaries and benefits are competitive to those of other downtown Montréal firms and are reviewed annually. We offer a $6,000 tuition bonus to our summer students upon signing on as articling students with us.
How to Apply
Our hiring criteria are varied and flexible. While strong academic achievement is obviously important, our primary emphasis is on hiring candidates who are personable and who demonstrate, through their résumés and interviews, initiative, effective communication skills, leadership, involvement in law-related and community activities, and team spirit.
We have hired all of our articling students for 2022-2023 and 2023-2024, and are not considering further applications at this time.
