Why article at Lavery

As an articling student and future lawyer at our firm, you will have all the tools to achieve your ambitions. Lavery offers a stimulating work environment and exceptional support that is adapted to your goals.

Once you join Lavery as an articling student, you will work closely with lawyers in all our areas of practice. You will collaborate on multiple cases and be asked to perform a variety of tasks: 

  • Organizing and closing business transactions 
  • Drafting reports, legal opinions and proceedings 
  • Making representations before the courts and other bodies 
  • Conducting jurisprudential and doctrinal research  
  • Preparing for trials 
  • Meeting with clients 
  • Playing a supportive role during negotiations 
  • Preparing for and participating in examinations 

We encourage collaborative work between our different practice groups and between regular students and articling students. This is also why we recommend articling on a rotating basis. Articling students who work on different types of cases are better able to understand the reality of different practices. 

We firmly believe that the students articling with us now will be our firm’s future lawyers. 

Our corporate culture, which emphasizes teamwork and client sharing among our young lawyers and partners, will allow you to quickly develop your own network, interact directly with our clients and achieve autonomy in your legal mandates and cases.
