Summer & Articling Programs

As a student working at Lenczner Slaght, you can count on having the support you need to be successful. In addition to your standard-issue work tools – a smartphone and a laptop – you have the backing of an experienced assistant who understands what your role entails and can both support and guide you. You can also rely on research assistance from our firm librarian and our Research Counsel. The Director of Student & Associate Programs is a constant resource for any questions or concerns that may arise as you settle into your role.

Compensation and Benefits

We pay our summer and articling students in line with the large downtown Toronto firms. In addition, we pay all licensing examination fees for our articling students, and  full salary during the licensing process study period, regardless of whether they are ultimately hired. We offer our articling students paid vacation time, a health club membership and a dental, health and life insurance plan.

Feedback and Reviews

As with our mentoring process, at Lenczner Slaght feedback is provided on a formal basis but also happens informally – we encourage our lawyers to provide comments on each piece of work that a student undertakes. For our formal mid-term and end-of-term reviews, students are provided with an evaluation template at orientation to ensure everyone is clear on the criteria.
