At Myers LLP we train advocates. Regardless of practice area, we believe strong advocacy skills are at the heart of successfully serving our clients. We aim to provide an articling experience that prepares students to become skillful litigators and strong advocates.
Our lawyers provide legal services to clients in most areas of the law. Cornerstones of the firm’s practice are Labour and Employment Law. The firm also has a significant litigation practice in Civil, Criminal and Family Law. Students also have an opportunity to gain experience with the Solicitors Department servicing clients with their business, real estate and wills and estates needs. Myers LLP focuses on giving students a uniquely broad articling experience.
Students are given legal research and drafting assignments, generally for the Criminal, Labour and Civil litigation lawyers. To provide well-rounded articles, we encourage our students to seek opportunities in all areas of the firm as these areas correspond to the CPLED course topics. The articling student’s principal helps to oversee a well-rounded articling experience. Articling students at Myers LLP are given the opportunity to advocate on behalf of clients in the area of Criminal Law. Students regularly appear in Provincial Court to conduct bail applications, remand matters, and conduct interviews in the Provincial Remand Centre. There will also be opportunities to junior on trials and appeals. Students at Myers LLP are also given the opportunity to appear and argue motions and assist with trials in Civil Litigation and Family Law matters. Students will also have the opportunity to junior at labour arbitrations and Labour Board hearings with our Labour Law department. At Myers LLP, we believe the best way to develop advocacy skills is to be given an opportunity to advocate.
Myers LLP has an informal and friendly yet professional atmosphere. Lawyers and students are invited to attend presentations on various topics, and for less formal discussions and learning amongst lawyers. Students are encouraged to spend time with the lawyers to discuss their work and CPLED course topics.
The firm provides a competitive articling salary, along with full health and dental benefits. All costs associated with the CPLED course are paid for by the firm. In addition, fees for continuing education programs the student wishes to attend will be paid for by the firm. The firm provides two weeks of paid vacation.
Many past articling students have been hired as associates after their call to the bar, but the firm cannot provide assurances in advance.
