Upon your arrival at BLG Montréal and during your first two weeks, you’ll learn about the Firm and its systems during an intensive orientation program with three goals:
- To ensure you`re familiar with all the resources available to you
- To establish what is expected of BLG students
- To prepare you for the hands-on work to follow
You’ll also attend weekly seminars led by lawyers in a variety of legal practice areas. These professionals will offer practical tips and help you develop a sense of focus for your own legal career. Articling students and associates attend regular professional development training sessions to increase substantive legal knowledge (i.e., preparing for trial, mediations, settlements, etc.) and to improve important practice related skills (i.e., drafting, business development, practice management, etc.).
