Join our team of 130 lawyers and experience the breadth and variety of practice of a full-service firm, within a collegial environment working in the public interest.

We generally hire six articling students each year and we recruit the majority of our lawyers through the articling process as hire-backs. The number of hire-backs depends on budgetary approvals.

How to Apply

We’re looking for students who demonstrate strong academic credentials and a desire to work for the public sector. This is demonstrated through your cover letter, resume, law school courses and other interests and in the interview itself.

Recruitment for the 2018-19 term closed on July 7, 2017.

If you’re interested in articling at the City of Toronto, submit an application consisting of a cover letter, resume, undergraduate, law school transcripts and two letters of reference. Choose one of the following three ways to send us your application:
