Working at Minden Gross LLP
How best to describe Minden Gross LLP? We are a business-oriented mid-size firm, large enough to serve multinational clients yet of a size where individual talent makes a noticeable contribution. Our environment values a head for business as well as for law and fully supports agile minds acting decisively.
Our main practice areas can be condensed into: Business Law, Real Estate, and Litigation – each of which incorporates various sub-groups, such as Insolvency, Employment/Labour, Estates, Tax, and Leasing to name a few. One of the things that makes us stand out is our ability to not only provide students with a sophisticated legal experience but also to provide a warm environment in which to grow.
We will not be hiring summer students in 2017.
We typically have three articling students who spend 10 months with us, learning every facet of the practice of law. We offer a structured rotation system, with our articling students spending just over three months in each of our three main practice areas: Business Law, Real Estate, and Litigation. Each rotation is supervised by a mentor, who will be there as a sounding board for students for any issues that may pop up.
We often check in for informal feedback on the experience and the students' progress and conclude the articling period with an in-depth discussion with each student about their potential future at Minden Gross LLP as an associate. We encourage students to give us feedback about what areas in the articling program we can improve upon. We will be following the Law Society of Upper Canada procedures for the recruitment of articling positions in 2017 for the 2018-2019 articling year. See our Welcome page for more details.
