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.
