Large Employer Careers Day: 1L Summer Opportunities Spotlight

Looking to get your foot in the door and some valuable applied legal experience over your 1L summer? While law-related 1L summer opportunities are certainly not the norm, they do exist, and some of them specifically (if not only) look to hire Allard Law students!

Attend this session to hear from three legal employers, each of whom offers highly sought-after summer opportunities for 1L students:

  • Dentons LLP – Douglas Knowles, Q.C. Annual Internship in Insolvency Law (1L/2L)
  • Singleton Reynolds – 1L Litigation Fellowship
  • UBC’s Sauder School of Business, Real Estate Division – Law Tutor (1L/2L)

You’ll learn more about each opportunity and employer, as well as insider tips for applying and interviewing. After attending the session, you can follow up with the employers at the Large Employer Career Fair.
