Summer Articles

The Legal Services Branch (LSB) typically hires between two to three students to “summer” with LSB after their second year of law school. Summer students are temporary articled students.

Similar to articling, summer students work with lawyers and professional staff in a variety of legal contexts. Unlike articling students, summer students do not rotate through different legal practice groups. They are primarily responsible for civil litigation and small claims civil litigation files. 

Summer students have many opportunities to work on a diverse range of files in all practice groups.

Recruitment for summer articles begins the summer prior to the year you wish to begin your summer term. Application forms and details about applying for summer articles will be posted on this page from July through September each year. You may also wish to check with your school’s Law Careers Office for information about application timing and deadlines.
