Canadian businesses are more globally connected than ever before, and they are looking for law firms—and lawyers—with an equally global presence. Starting your career as a student at Dentons exposes you to a world of experience and opportunities. With offices in each of Canada’s key economic centers—Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver—we provide fully integrated legal services wherever our clients do business, whether it be in the local market, across Canada or around the world. At Dentons, you will be joining a team of more than 12,000 talented lawyers and professionals in 207 locations in 82 countries.
Dentons Canada takes great pride in the quality of summer students and articling students we hire. We understand that the future of our Firm is built on the students we hire and therefore providing quality student recruitment and development programs is a key focus in all six of our offices across the country.
Dentons is committed to diversity and inclusion. We believe that our strength as a firm comes from nurturing a team that includes a cross-section of ethnicities, genders, ages, sexual orientations and cultural backgrounds. We know that broadening the diversity of our workforce also broadens our insight and perspective, and enhances our ability to offer clients innovative legal solutions.
Most of our offices attend On Campus Interviews across the country and the majority of our students are hired from Canadian universities. However, we strongly encourage students who are trained outside of Canada and who have gone through the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) or the Programme d’actualisation de formation en droit process to apply as well.
The transition from law school to the practice of law is a challenging, yet highly rewarding one with the right supervision and guidance. Our summer and articling programs are designed to facilitate that transition in a flexible manner to ensure each individual student’s needs and interests are met. As a student you’ll work under the guidance of experienced lawyers on interesting files for our clients. You’ll be given real responsibilities and gain real experience.
In addition, we have comprehensive orientation and training programs, as well as opportunities to get involved in the fabric of the firm, from pro bono, to client development, to social events and beyond. When you join Dentons, you are a valued member of our global team from the day you sign on.
