The summer student experience is a formative stage in your legal career. We recognize the importance of this foundational experience and, as a result, we invest heavily in nurturing our student talent to ensure each student develops and grows to their potential. Through thoughtful mentoring, transparent feedback, high quality work assignments, meaningful pro bono and charitable opportunities as well as social and community building 事件s, we support each student as they explore and discover their areas of interest and make strong team relationships with their peers and our lawyers.
In 多伦多, our students work closely with lawyers and feedback is shared informally on a regular basis and formally, at two times during each of the summer and articling terms. 学生们 are encouraged to discuss any aspect of their summer experience or articles with their mentor and other lawyers in the firm, to seek constructive feedback on their professional development, and to tell us whether the firm is providing them with work and experience consistent with their expectations. Student workloads and the variety of each student's assignments are reviewed regularly by the Director of Professional Resources.
In addition to the professional aspects of the summer and articling program, a variety of social 事件s are planned throughout the year to round out your experience as a McCarthy Tétrault student. Regular social 事件s are organized to provide an opportunity to meet and get to know other students and lawyers on an informal basis.
