Jewitt McLuckie & Associates LLP promotes a collegial and supportive work environment which encourages lawyers-in- training to develop their individual strengths and talents.
Articling students play an integral part in our practice by assisting lawyers and other professional staff with litigation and arbitration preparation, providing legal research and drafting correspondence, pleadings and legal submissions. Opportunities may arise for students to take full carriage of small claims and pro bono files.
Our goal during the articling year is to provide students with a rewarding experience in an exciting area of the law and prepare them for legal practice. Articling students receive hands-on experience with contacting clients, preparing witnesses for hearings, attending at hearings and various tribunal proceedings with lawyers, and negotiating with opposing counsel.
Articling students receive a salary competitive with other labour and employment firms in the City of Ottawa. Those who wish can be enrolled in the firm’s benefit package. The firm will also provide a payment contribution towards licensing expenses.
Should you wish to article with our firm, please submit your résumé, cover letter, undergraduate and law school transcripts, and references to John McLuckie at firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information about articling, visit the Law Society of Upper Canada.
