Support success breeds success.

Students represent our single greatest source for future associates and partners, so we have a vested interest in giving our students a rich and rewarding learning experience and the foundation for a successful legal career.

We offer exceptional summer programs to students who have completed their second year of law school. Summer program students receive well-rounded and practical work experience that gives them an advantage over their peers and a leg up in their education.

Our goal is to provide as many opportunities as we can to our students and expose them to a wide variety of legal matters. In addition, all our summer students will be matched with a mentor and have the chance to work closely with a lawyer in the practice group they are joining for the summer term. 

Our commitment to our students is evidenced by the fact that nearly all of our summer program students tend to stay with Gowling WLG for their articling term.
