Applying to the Calgary office

As a student, there are many benefits to working alongside some of Canada’s most accomplished lawyers in one of the country’s fastest growing and most dynamic cities. At Dentons, in addition to working with the best and brightest in the profession, you will also have the opportunity to participate in our varied programs which will immediately integrate you into our Firm’s culture and expose you to our multiple practice areas. Applications should include a cover letter, resume, and law school and undergraduate transcripts. Reference letters will be accepted, but are optional.

We consider the interview process to be a time of discovery. We learn about you, your interests and your goals while you learn about what defines us—as lawyers and a Firm. While academic achievement ranks high on our list of criteria, we’re also interested in you. The kind of person you are reflects, to a large degree, the kind of lawyer you’ll be.
