Summer Student Program
Our law students will gain hands on experience on both the solicitor and barrister sides of our practice. They will be mentored by our General Counsel and Director of Practice Management, Scott McLean, and are encouraged to attend practice group meetings and bi-monthly meetings for the entire legal team.
We also welcome our law students at firm social events throughout the summer, to get to know the great people who make up our friendly firm in an informal setting.

“Mann Lawyers has given me an incredibly robust summer experience. I am regularly introduced to new areas of law, and I am also encouraged to develop my interest areas by staff and partners. Also, it is just generally a lovely place to work. The Mann Lawyers team has been wonderful!” – Filip Szadurski, 2019 Summer Law Student
Our comprehensive program is designed to provide you with the training and experiences required to ensure a successful start to your legal career. As such, over the course of our 10-month program, students will be given an opportunity to work in the following areas:
- Civil litigation
- Family law
- Personal injury
- Real estate
- Wills and estates
Regardless of which rotation a student is assigned to, if at any given time an opportunity comes up in another section which would be of interest and beneficial to the student’s legal education, arrangements can be made to allow the student the opportunity to take part in that learning opportunity.
During each of the rotations, a lawyer will be assigned to work with our articling student to mentor them through that particular area of the law, and such mentor will provide ongoing feedback. Articling students will also work directly with our General Counsel and Director of Practice Management, Scott McLean, to ensure a challenging and rewarding articling experience, which will provide a solid foundation for a legal career.
We encourage our articling students to participate in and attend
- Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs provided to our lawyers
- Practice group meetings
- Bi-monthly meetings for the entire legal team
- Annual offsite lawyers retreat
- Networking events
- Firm social events
We recruit our articling students directly from our summer law student program and generally do not consider applications from those who have not participated in this program.
Compensation for articling students at Mann Lawyers is competitive.
