The Articling Program

A The goal of the Gardiner Roberts LLP articling program is to teach our articling students how to become good lawyers. Accordingly, our students work closely with both senior and junior lawyers on a wide variety of matters. Students are treated as professionals and they gain practical experience by being involved in client meetings, corporate commercial transactions, drafting of legal documents and attending on motions, trials and administrative proceedings.

Although we believe in the importance of a varied articling program, students who become involved in a particular hearing or transaction may retain carriage of the matter through their articles. In addition, Gardiner Roberts attempts to accommodate students who develop an interest in a particular area of law.

 

The mid-size law firm environment at Gardiner Roberts fosters a collegial working atmosphere. Each of our lawyers is approachable and is understanding of the articling student's perspective. Students are invited to attend all firm functions such as our Christmas party, summer event, monthly Thursday cocktail reception, annual client golf tournament, in addition to a number of smaller, informal events that occur throughout the year. At Gardiner Roberts, we encourage students to interact with lawyers in smaller settings and may include luncheons, dinners, plays and sporting events.
