Owens Wright LLP will be hiring up to three (3) summer law students for 2023 (May – August).

The other two (2) students will be dedicated to the corporate, commercial real estate, commercial leasing and wills & estates departments. Please note that if you are hired back for articling, the positions will be the same. Our summer student salary is competitive with downtown firms. Our summer students will also receive priority for articling hire-backs!

Application: Please submit your summer application to email@example.com.
Summer applications should include the following:
- Covering letter, please clearly indicate if you are interested in “Litigation” or “Corporate & Commercial Real Estate” so we can direct your applications accordingly.

Note that Owens Wright LLP does not adhere to the Law Society of Ontario On Campus Interview (OCI) Process. Accordingly, the dates above are not firm and may be adjusted at the discretion of the firm.
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.
Unless a student is dedicated to the litigation group (typically one student each year will be streamed exclusively in litigation), they will complete rotations with each of our commercial real estate and corporate group. Students develop strong relationships with lawyers who are leaders in their fields and gain hands-on experience.
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.
