The professional development of our lawyers and students is guided by our continuing legal education program, which includes sessions on corporate law, M&A, capital markets, banking and debt finance, and other topics pertinent to the development of your legal career. A parallel litigation program is offered, which includes trial skills and advocacy training, and sessions on drafting facta and pleadings, negotiating for settlement, motion practice and techniques for discovery. These programs are supplemented by educational seminars specifically tailored for our students.
We also offer substantive sessions on topics including mental health in the workplace, practice management techniques, professionalism and networking, all of which we believe to be critical to well-rounded lawyers.
We have a robust client secondment program and offer these opportunities to students (both articling and summer) when available. Client Events & Conferences: We encourage all students to attend the events we host for our clients.
Each summer student is paired with one junior associate and each articling student is paired with one mid-level associate and one partner. Performance Reviews: To help you identify your strengths and hone your skills, you will receive formal performance reviews throughout your time at Torys in addition to receiving ongoing feedback from those you are working with at the firm.
