Each of our articling students is assigned a principal who is a senior lawyer with the primary responsibility for the quality of that student's articles.
If a student has an interest in a particular area of law, his or her principal will assist the student in obtaining exposure to that type of work.
After a student has articled for approximately one month, he or she is asked to choose a junior lawyer to be a mentor. The role of the mentor is to give support and guidance to the student throughout the articling year and to assist the principal in monitoring the student's progress.
Each summer student also has the benefit of a mentor in the firm who provides guidance to the student over the course of the summer.
