Seminars and Learning
Our articling program includes an intensive orientation, a “student bootcamp” series of seminars, and bi-weekly lunch seminars on practical subjects, to supplement the “hands on” learning experience articling provides. Our Director of Associate and Student Programs is a Partner who has the sole job of supporting and developing our junior legal talent. All of our articling students are also matched with both a senior lawyer and a junior lawyer, to play direct mentorship roles.
Making Connections at Alexander Holburn
Throughout the articling year, we include our articled students in all firm functions, which gives students an opportunity to meet with lawyers and staff on a social basis. We also sponsor functions for students alone, to build camaraderie within our student group. It is our intention that, at the end of the articling experience, our students will not only have had a thorough professional experience, but will also have established friendships which will last throughout the balance of their professional career.
