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 Financial Services, Employment and Labour, Estates, Tax, and Commercial 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 hired three 2L summer students for 2023. These students spent 13 weeks with us, getting to know our professionals, staff, and practice areas. We offer a flexible summer program where students can dedicate the majority of their time working with professionals in a particular area of interest or they can explore many areas over the course of the summer. We do not have set rotations as we prefer to work with the students to tailor the experience to their interests and goals.
We will not be participating in the Toronto On Campus Interview (OCI) process nor the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) recruitment process in November 2023. Our summer student applications will open in November after the LSO process is complete. Please check back in the fall for dates and more information.
If you are considering applying for a future Summer position, application packages should include the following, submitted by email in one PDF document. Do not apply before we post a notice that we are looking for applications.

We hire three articling students each year to spend their 10-month articling term 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 solicit feedback on the experience and the students' progress throughout the articling terms, and we 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 all students to give us candid feedback about areas in the articling program we can improve upon.
