My time as an articling student at Minden Gross was an unparalleled learning experience. From the very first day, I was made to feel like an integral member of the MG team. I was given a high degree of independence and responsibility on complex and challenging files, all while having the incredible support and mentorship of lawyers who were genuinely invested in my development. I can’t think of a better place to have started my legal career.

Minden Gross LLP offers a unique experience for articling students. In each rotation I was immersed in files where I assisted in closing large transactions, drafted contracts, and interacted directly with clients. As a midsize firm, Minden Gross encourages students to take significant responsibility on files, which helps make the most of each rotation. Having the opportunity to work on matters from start to finish, I was able to see the value of my work on each matter and see them through to the end. Partners and Associates truly have an open door policy, reinforcing the culture of mentorship and support, where I felt comfortable going to Partners directly and getting answers to questions. I truly believe articling at Minden Gross provides a strong foundation on which to build a legal career.

My articling experience at Minden Gross was equal parts challenging and enjoyable. I was given the responsibility of completing challenging tasks on a number of files, but I was able to do so under the guidance of great lawyers and with the assistance of our remarkable support staff.
You learn pretty quickly that Minden’s “Open-Door Policy” isn’t just a throwaway line on the firm’s website. Whenever I had questions, law-related or not, I felt comfortable approaching any member of our firm to ask for their opinion or advice. From junior associates to senior partners, the lawyers at Minden Gross are genuinely interested in seeing you develop into a competent and confident lawyer.

I can’t imagine that articling gets much better than an experience at Minden Gross.
From the get-go, I was tasked with meaningful and challenging assignments and benefited from the knowledge of top-tier lawyers while doing so. I immediately became part of the team and was consistently made to feel that my contribution to file work in all areas and in firm life was valuable.
The firm is committed to students’ professional growth. Both Lawyers and management have encouraged me to pursue my interests and have provided the support and practical guidance necessary to build the foundation of a successful lawyer.
Most importantly, I looked forward to coming to the office every day. The people here are truly special and take a genuine interest in getting to know you – partners, associates, staff, and your articling cohort quickly become your friends. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Minden Gross family.

Articling at Minden Gross LLP was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. I was given the opportunity to engage in meaningful work, including appearing on ex parte motions, conducting judgment debtor examinations, attending settlement conferences, and preparing motions material. It was a privilege to learn from some of the most talented lawyers in the industry and I am extremely grateful for the support and guidance that they afforded me.

The best thing about working at Minden Gross is the people that work here. I have worked with and learned from exceptional lawyers at the firm, and have made lifelong friends here as well.
The partners and associates are friendly, team-oriented, and committed to their clients. On any given day, I see partners and associates going in and out of each other's offices brainstorming and asking for advice. There's great camaraderie here, and everyone works as a team. Further, the lawyers here encourage articling students to take on responsibility immediately.
From very early on, I was talking with clients, going to court, and drafting documents. The partners and associates were always available to help with any questions I had. It's amazing how fast I have grown here. Every day at the firm is different and fast paced, and I am always engaged and excited for the next challenge. Although the learning curve is steep, it is deeply fulfilling to look back even just after a few months of starting and realize how much I have learned in such a short period of time.
