“I joined BLG as an articling student in 2009. My articling experience was incredibly positive. I received broad exposure to all the practice groups through a formal rotation. I was involved in a wide array of interesting and challenging transactions from start to finish and established a strong foundation for my legal skills. I also formed relationships with mentors, whom I keep in touch with to this day.”

“I really enjoyed my articling experience. I was exposed to a wide variety of cases and had the opportunity to make meaningful contributions. The training and mentoring programs were well structured and helped me acquire the skills and knowledge I would need as a lawyer. I stayed at BLG because of the people I met, the connections I made, and because it’s a great place to develop a career.”

Associate, Insurance Claim Defence Group

“Having a well-rounded articling experience was important to me. The rotation system between our litigation and corporate groups allowed me to work on interesting files in different practice areas, which was exactly what I was looking for. In addition, I really connected with the BLGers I met during my time as a summer student. Returning to the firm to article was an easy decision.”

Bruno Savoie

Associate, Construction Group

“I wanted to article at BLG because I knew the wide range of practice areas would help me become a well-rounded lawyer. In the end, it was the people I met and the welcoming culture that really impressed me. I look forward to working in the construction group and learning about the industry.”
