From Summer to Articling

Natalie Zinman was interviewed in the Lexpert article “From Summer to Articling.”

Summer students don’t always know the extent of the different types of law, says Zinman, who co-designs student programs. “I tell them I want them to be entrepreneurial. I want them to go out and discover as many different aspects of advocacy as they can, and get a sense of what they like, what they’re interested in.” A lot of summer students come in thinking they’re interested in one area, because that’s what they were exposed to in law school, she says, but when they come in and see other areas, “it broadens their perspective and changes their thinking. So the goal is really for them to get a sense of that landscape and start development on the practical side.”
