Applying to the Edmonton office

Our Edmonton students tell us repeatedly that they chose Dentons primarily because of our people. The culture is spirited and collegial, offering a healthy balance between our personal and professional lives. While students come for the opportunity to work alongside some of Canada’s most experienced lawyers in the challenging environment of business law, they are also attracted to the flexible and diverse programs available.

Our interview process provides an ideal opportunity for us to learn more about each other. Although academic achievement is an important selection criterion, it is not the only one we consider. Your community involvement, personal achievements and, yes, individual personality, also help us through the selection process.
