Articling with us gives you a people edge.
We provide articling students with the opportunity to engage and grow your legal, advocacy, interpersonal and presentation skills. Workplace law encompasses many and various areas of law, and involves challenging problem solving every day. Articling students conduct research, draft client documents, participate in client meetings and hearing preparation and attend at hearings (arbitrations, tribunals or court) to see your work in action. As your capacity grows so will the opportunities.
Mentorship is an important element of life at Roper Greyell. Everyone you meet here should be viewed as potential mentors as you learn what it is like to work in a law firm. Every Roper Greyell team member has an experience and view point that could be helpful to you during your articling or summer articling period and your future career as a lawyer. Along with this informal mentorship, we also have a more formal mentoring program to help students. You will be assigned both an Articling Principal and an Associate Mentor.
Your Articling Principal is a partner or senior lawyer at the firm who is there to help maximize your experience by being a guide through your time at the firm. During the time you are at the firm you will be connected with an associate who has volunteered to participate in our associate mentoring program. The aim of this program is to help facilitate your introduction to the firm and provide a peer mentor who has recently or relatively recently been through the articling experience.
We strive to practice law in a way that supports excellence in client service and provides a sustainable work life balance. We mean it and want everyone on our team to have a satisfying professional career and personal life.
