« We would like to give an articling student the possibility of having a hands-on experience with every aspect of an attorney’s work and help him/her to become independent and efficient in the practice of his/her profession. »
Every year, the firm of Michaud Lebel welcomes one or two articling students, seeking to develop their know-how.
The work performed by an articling student is structured to allow him/her to become familiar with research tools and the operation of a law firm. Various research assignments are gradually entrusted to him/her, along with the drafting of procedures or other assignments. These assignments concern active files, ensuring that the work performed will have a direct impact on the progress of current cases.
An articling student is also required to make submissions in court, either when the hearing docket is called or when motions are presented or contested. The articling student may also be required to assist any of the attorneys in complex cases to learn about the specifics in that type of case.
An articling student will have the benefit of daily support by the firm’s attorneys throughout his/her articling period. The articling student is encouraged to become involved in cases and to show initiative. Lastly, periodic meetings are held to discuss the articling student’s progress and to ensure that sufficient knowledge, skills and assurance are acquired over the weeks.
We want to give an articling student the possibility of being closely involved with all of the aspects of an attorney’s work and to help him/her become independent and efficient in the practice of his/her profession.
