Description of articling program At ATAC LAW, articled students will do everything that an articled student is able to do, and their work will not be limited to the drudgery of repetitive legal research and document review.
Our articling program requires articled students to work closely with associate lawyers and partners in preparing for and attending court proceedings. Typically, an articled student will participate in several civil trials throughout the articling term. Articled students will also be expected to conduct chambers applications with the guidance of other lawyers at the firm. Articled students are treated as soon-to-be-lawyers with the expectation that they will be hired back upon completion of their articles.
Do you offer internships? No
Do you accept applications for summer/articling positions from foreign trained students/lawyers? No
Comments We do not accept applications from foreign trained lawyers, articled students or interns.
