Indigenous Articling Students

We are committed to diversity in our team and to Indigenous voices in the legal profession. Each year, one of our articled student positions is reserved for a candidate who self-identifies as Indigenous. The Indigenous articling student position enjoys the same opportunities as all other articling students, including the potential opportunity to continue as legal counsel with the Legal Services Branch (LSB) after their articles.

In late 2020, the Articled Student Program partnered with LSB’s Indigenous Employees Collective and the BC Public Service Agency to create two informative videos for Indigenous law students and graduates who are considering applying with LSB. Please click the links below to hear directly from an Indigenous articled student and lawyer on their experiences articling and working with LSB.

Potential applicants who are interested in speaking with an Indigenous lawyer about their experiences working for LSB may do so by contacting Tom Daly, Articled Student Manager. One of us would be happy to connect with you and answer your questions.
