Know a law student seeking information about articling?
Articling is no longer a one size fits all approach. There are a variety of opportunities for students to explore outside the traditional 12-month articling position.

Our Education Plan uses a competency-based approach and opens the door for you to build your own custom articling experience, including working in-house, in a non-profit setting and/or or for a sole practitioner. During this webinar, we will explore:

  • requirements before you can start articling
  • the education plan
  • composite articles: how they work and real-life examples
  • overview of CPLED requirements
  • tips for landing the articling position
