Our summer program involves two rotations; in each, you'll be assigned several mentors who will provide you with work in a variety of practice areas.
Your summer starts with a comprehensive orientation to BLG that will prepare you for the hands-on work to come. You'll also attend weekly seminars to learn about the many types of law we practice. You'll meet your mentors who will not only assign you work, but will answer your questions about the Firm, the work and life in the legal profession.
You'll get practical experience working on many of the same challenging tasks as our articling students. BLG's accomplished professionals will introduce you to all aspects of legal practice, including meetings, discoveries and court appearances.
You may also choose to split your summer between BLG Vancouver and one of the following options:
- a one- or two-month assignment at one of BLG's other regional offices
- a public interest or human rights internship arranged through your law school
