Our summer program begins with a week of orientation and training to introduce you to the firm, as well as research and writing techniques. In addition, we offer continuing legal education and professional development programs.

Summer students are given a broad range of responsibilities, including attending meetings, hearing and other litigation processes, researching and drafting legal memos, preparing draft documents, due diligence and work relating to the closing of transactions, participating in the drafting of conference materials, articles for publication, and case summaries. It is important that you have a well-rounded experience during what is often your first exposure to the practice of law.

In Calgary, we don't have a formal rotation program for summer students; this provides students with exposure to the areas of law that are of most interest to them. We believe that you should have direct contact with lawyers at all levels of the firm, so lawyers allocate work directly to students. Summer students  are assigned two mentors from different practice areas. Our mentors also collaborate with the Director, Professional Ressources to ensure that students receive ongoing performance feedback. Members of our Student Program team monitor the flow of work to each student..

We encourage independence and initiative in our students. Your mentors will offer professional guidance throughout the summer and be responsible for ensuring that you receive interesting and stimulating work
