APPLYING FOR SUMMERING
Generally, we hire six summer students every year. We have now hired all of our summer students for 2020, in accordance with the Vancouver Bar Association Guidelines. The deadline for summer student applications is generally early September. We also actively participate in on-campus interviews at the following schools:
- University of Alberta
- University of British Columbia
- University of Calgary
- McGill University
- Osgoode Hall Law School
- Queen’s University
- Thompson Rivers University
- University of Ottawa
- University of Toronto
- University of Western Ontario
- University of Windsor
- University of Victoria
Please contact your law school’s Career Development Office to find out deadlines for OCI applications, as these are often earlier than the first week in September.
To apply for our summer student program, please send your cover letter, resume, a copy of your law school transcript and your undergraduate marks to the attention of Christine York, Director of Associate and Student Programs. We appreciate when students provide a weighted GPA for each year of law school, should it not be provided in the transcripts. You may also include reference letters, and a list of law courses you intend to take, although these are not required.
Applications can be submitted through the online portal, vilawportal.com, or by mail or e-mail.
