ARTICLING & STUDENTS

Although we may utilize a rotation to give students access to a broad and comprehensive articling experience, DSF maintains an informal component to the articling program. By allowing an informal component to the program, students are able to gain greater access to areas and practices of particular interest.

Lawyers are decision makers and we want to ensure that the necessary skills are learned from the beginning.

Our articling students gain court experience, as well as meet and communicate with clients, lawyers and representatives from outside the firm on the matter in which they are involved. Some of our articling student’s responsibilities include: Weekly attendance at examinations and motions, carriage of small claims court files, and writing articles for our quarterly newsletter. They also assist on motions, pre-trials, mediations, arbitrations, trials (preparing materials, negotiating with opposing parties, and attending), and conduct research.

DSF offers a salary competitive with other mid-sized Toronto firms, and pays the tuition of the bar admission course regardless of hire-back. Salary is not paid during the bar admission course.
