At Davis LLP, we are deeply committed to providing a first class education to our students. We seek to attract and train outstanding law students who will continue with the firm as associates and who will ultimately develop into partners.
Our Montréal office is pleased to offer both Articling & Summer student positions.
Our Montréal office provides students with an opportunity to experience a well-rounded, challenging environment. Students enjoy the benefit of drawing on large pools of expertise in a stable, established environment. We offer a small-firm collegial atmosphere with the benefits of national firm practice.
Those hired assist our lawyers in areas including international business law, corporate and commercial law, commercial and civil litigation and employment law. We do not employ a formal rotation schedule in the Montréal office, but rather encourage our students to participate in a number of areas of practice.
All of the lawyers in the office provide mentorship and guidance to our students. Students also have access to advanced legal research tools including cutting edge computer systems, legal databases and the Internet.
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.
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.
Candidates interested in being considered for an articling or summer position should forward a résumé, with copies of transcripts from post-secondary institutions, to:
1501 McGill College Avenue, Suite 1400
Montréal, Québec H3A 3M8
By fax: 514.392.8376
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Montréal office hires approximately 1 articling and 1 summer student annually.
Compensation and Benefits
Our students' salaries and benefits are competitive to those of other downtown Montréal firms and are reviewed annually.
One feature that distinguishes Davis 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. Davis provides 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.
