Summer fellowships

In addition to our summer law student positions, we also offer the following summer fellowships.

  • Our Douglas Knowles, QC, Annual Internship in Insolvency Law is open to first- and second-year law students attending the University of British Columbia. The first half of the summer will be spent working as a summer articling student in the downtown Vancouver office of Dentons and the second half of the summer will be spent conducting insolvency-related research with our lawyers practising in this area and Dr. Janis Sarra.
  • Our UVic Summer Fellowship position is open to first-year law students attending the University of Victoria. The first half of the summer will be spent working as a summer articling student in the downtown Vancouver office of Dentons and the second half of the summer will be spent assisting a University of Victoria law professor with a research project. Sometimes this second portion of the summer is based in Victoria and sometimes the research may be done from our offices in Vancouver, depending on the professor’s preferences.

Further details about the programs, including details of the application process, are available through the university career services office.
