For summer student applicants, we currently do not adhere to the On Campus Interview (OCI) process. Rather, we conduct our recruitment process at later points during the year.
Our articling program is a natural extension of our summer program. The articling term begins in August and runs for a ten-month period, pursuant to the requirements of the Law Society of Ontario. Typically, our summer students return to article with us; however, in certain circumstances, we do accept separate applications for articling.
We believe that gaining experience in a diverse range of practice areas is essential to students’ professional development. Accordingly, during our articling program, students complete rotations with each of our real estate, corporate, and litigation group. Students develop strong relationships with lawyers who are leaders in their fields and gain hands-on experience in both transactional work and advocacy.
We take pride in providing our students with substantive work and responsibilities. Students serve an essential role on files, and we take their contributions seriously. We believe that articling with a boutique firm provides our students with a competitive advantage, and we are committed to supporting their professional development.
We seek well-rounded individuals who have displayed a demonstrated interest in, and aptitude for, the practice of real estate, corporate law, and litigation. If you wish to begin your career with Owens Wright LLP, please submit your cover letter, resume, official undergraduate and law school transcripts, and list of proposed upper-year courses. Reference letters are encouraged but are not necessary.
