One feature that distinguishes Davis from many other major firms is the degree of responsibility that 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.
The Toronto office also participates in an ongoing series of student seminars, originating from our Vancouver office and dealing with practice-related topics of interest.
We sponsor various of social events throughout the year, and encourage our lawyers and professional staff to socialize outside of the office.
The Law Library
Davis has one of the largest private law libraries in Western Canada. The scope of the collection provides lawyers and students with virtually all their legal research needs. The library is staffed by a professional law librarian and experienced library assistants, who provide reference assistance to lawyers and students.
Computer-assisted research is available, and all articled students are provided with formal training in using and searching the computer databases. In addition, all lawyers and students have access to Quicklaw, Westlaw Canada, and other applicable online resources.
Offices and Administrative support
Each student is provided with an office, and receives administrative support from a legal assistant. Other legal assistants throughout the office provide additional assistance, as required.
