Diverse skills and perspectives are the building blocks of the best ideas and most sophisticated thinking. Across our culture and operations, we pursue tangible and meaningful ways to advance diversity, equity and inclusion.

To that end, Torys is pleased to invite you to our 1L Scholar Connect workshop. The Torys 1L Scholar Connect workshop will provide law students from equity-seeking communities with programming focused on professional development, networking and mentorship.

This immersive, interactive workshop will provide candidates with an opportunity to acquire invaluable insight into the intricacies of law, networking, recruiting and the firm.

  • Network with our lawyers, students, and fellow Torys Scholars
  • Receive ongoing mentoring and career development support
  • Gain a familiarity with the people and culture at Torys

To promote access and inclusion, Torys will provide one night’s accommodation in Toronto to successful candidates. Please note that this workshop will be held in English only.
