Our student program is designed to allow you to take control of your career from the day you arrive at the firm. With lots of support and resources available to you, we have structured our student program to be highly customizable to each individual to allow you to chart your own career path at the firm.
Our non-rotational student program is very flexible and allows you to explore all of your areas of interest over the course of your summer or articling term. You can work in as many or as few practice areas of your choosing and gain exposure to a broad cross-section of practice areas and practice styles. You will work with partners, associates and other students on a variety of matters and for a variety of clients, drawing on the knowledge, judgment and expertise of your colleagues in the firm. This approach accelerates the learning process, builds professional skills and industry experience, and will help you develop your own blend of legal skills and professional style. Your experience as a student at Torys will be intense but fulfilling. Our objective is to help you develop the disciplined analytical, technical and practical skills that you will need to become a successful lawyer.
Articling and summer students are a vital part of Torys’ continuing growth and success – you are our future associates and partners. As a Torys student, you will have the opportunity to participate in dynamic relationships in which outstanding work, client service and a rewarding professional experience are paramount.
