Student Program

Summer Student Program

We look for exceptional candidates to join us each summer. Generally, we fill one or two summer student positions each year. Through our program, we are determined that our chosen summer student(s) will join us through their articles, become an associate and one day, join the partnership.

During your summer with us, you will be supported by a partner, who will be your principal. Your principal will be responsible for ensuring you receive appropriate training and feedback, and that you are involved in a broad range of interesting and challenging work. We have an exceptional Student Committee, consisting of senior associates and two partners. The committee will select one of our senior associates to be your mentor. Your mentor will provide guidance, act as a support system, and show you what our Firm business and culture is all about!
