Training & Development

Professional Development

Right from the start, we build on what you learned in law school to help you establish and maintain a successful legal practice. You'll get the practical experience, insightful mentorship and thoughtful evaluation you need to succeed.

Right from the start, you get to work on headline-making deals and cases. With the strength of our team behind you, you can make your mark on many high-profile cases.

Sharpen your legal and business mind

Right from the start, the finest and most progressive companies are your clients. We set you up for success through mentorship, in-depth evaluation and hands-on experience. 

We are the firm with momentum

BLG is where your passion, innovation, and drive for excellence can shine through. We are a progressive, forward-thinking firm and together we are changing the way the world does business.

Your pathway to success

No two lawyers are the same, or have the same interests. With different goals and many different ways to get there, we make it our mission to ensure all our students are supported and encouraged.

From their first day in the office, students participate in a comprehensive orientation to introduce them to the firm. Throughout articling and summering, they attend regular training sessions in practice management and a variety of topics in substantive law.

The Employee Experience

We offer:

  • mentoring
  • coaching
  • BLG U – formal e-learning programs
  • feedback in a snapshot
  • experiential learning

National Director, Professional Recruiting

“I take great care in making sure we have sound training and development programs for our students, and that they feel fully supported during their time as students at BLG. This support would be not possible without the help of remarkable practitioners and staff to help guide, mentor and train right from the start.”

“Not every young lawyer is the same. They all have different end destinations and different ways in which they want to get there. What’s important is to create an environment where each of them has the opportunity to do so.”
