Our flexible articling program builds on your time as a BLG summer student and gives you the freedom to work in the practice areas that interest you most.
We tailor your rotation schedule based on your interests and previous experience in our summer program.
Your articling experience begins with an in-depth orientation, introducing you to our Montréal office and all its resources. You’ll also attend professional development seminars geared to stagiaires, such as:
- communicating with clients
- preparing for and arguing a motion
- file and practice management
Articling students can also participate in firm-wide training programs offered throughout the year.
You’ll be assigned a mentor and a maître de stage. Your mentor will meet with you regularly to give feedback, monitor your workload and ensure you receive a wide variety of files and projects.
Lawyers will assign you work directly, tasks much the same as those done by junior associates. These may include:
- attending meetings
- drafting and pleading motions
- conducting discoveries
- preparing and signing letters of demands
- drafting contracts
