a train crossing a bridge over a body of water


Right from the start, you’ll find the Calgary office welcoming.

Keeping pace with the changing business of law—and surging ahead. You’ll learn from innovative and accomplished professionals as you forge a dynamic career.

You’re part of our team right from the start at BLG Calgary. You’ll get invaluable practical experience. You’ll also receive the support and training you need to deliver the top-quality work our clients expect.

Summer Program

We give first- and second-year students 15 weeks of hands-on experience in litigation and business law.

You are paired with an associate mentor who will be there for you the entire time to answer questions.

Your summer starts with an orientation session, where you’ll learn all about BLG and our resources. From there you'll do a rotation in our Business and Litigation groups, exploring various practice areas and learning from many lawyers.

You'll get hands-on experience doing much the same work as articling students: conducting research, handling Small Claims Court matters, and drafting contracts and pleadings.

Our lawyers will introduce you to all aspects of legal practise, including client meetings, questionings and court appearances.

Articling Program

Take the next step in your law career with us. You'll get hands-on experience in litigation and business law, work similar to that done by our junior associates.

Comprehensive Training

Your articling experience begins with an in-depth orientation session. You’ll also attend weekly seminars on topics such as:

  • common types of motions in Queen’s Bench chambers
  • insolvency and corporate restructuring
  • securities practice
  • government relations
  • litigation practice and procedures

Articling students can also participate in firm-wide training programs offered to all our lawyers.

Your Articling Experience

During your six-month rotations in both litigation and business law, you’ll work hands-on in a range of practice areas, learning from many of our accomplished lawyers.


You’ll be assigned a principal and an associate mentor who will support you throughout your articling experience. Your associate mentor will answer your questions, provide advice and guide you through professional events.

Hands-on Experience

While assisting lawyers on major matters, you will:

  • attend hearings, questionings and mediations
  • draft memoranda and contracts
  • conduct due diligence and research
  • work on pro bono projects and cases

You’ll also gain valuable practical experience by managing your own Small Claims Court matters.
