My time at Minden Gross as a summer and articling student has been an incredibly rewarding learning experience. Despite the necessarily virtual parts of my student experience due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I felt welcomed and trusted from the get-go. I was encouraged to seek out and explore opportunities to work on files based on my personal interests, with no shortage of substantial hands-on learning in a collegial, supportive atmosphere. I greatly appreciated having this flexibility to customize my own student experience without losing the well-roundedness afforded by the rotation structure. In particular, I always felt comfortable reaching out to senior associates and partners to ask for feedback on how I could improve my work or for advice on issues where I had trouble finding answers on my own. I could not have asked for a better team of experienced lawyers and staff to guide and support me along my journey of becoming a lawyer!

I had a wonderful time as a summer student and as an articling student at Minden Gross. The people at the firm, from the support staff to the associates and partners, are great to work with and are always open to answering questions. The firm is invested in students’ growth and wants to see them succeed.

As a student, I was exposed to work with a high level of responsibility where I coordinated the closing of an acquisition - being trusted with this work at an early stage in my career was a rewarding experience. I have learned a lot from working with the incredibly talented lawyers at the firm, which has equipped me with the tools to be successful in my career.

Although my summer experience was entirely virtual, the lawyers made an effort to stay connected with the students, and the firm hosted online events to give us opportunities to meet others at the firm. When the world started to open up again, the firm made sure to organize numerous lunches so that the firm can connect in person again. The firm also sponsored events that the students organized – the articling students had a great time doing an escape room challenge.

My experience articling at Minden Gross exceeded all of my expectations. From day one, I was encouraged to pursue my interests and was provided with meaningful opportunities to participate in many interesting and complicated files. In each rotation, I was able to take on significant responsibility, whether it was in drafting contracts or pleadings, interacting directly with clients, or appearing in court. There was always an incredible support staff or lawyer available to provide guidance and answer questions that came up.

Ultimately, the people at Minden Gross are what set the firm apart and are the reason that my articling experience was so special – from the support staff to associates to senior partners, the people at the firm took a vested interest in my personal and professional development and saw to it that I become the best possible lawyer-to-be!

Minden Gross LLP offers a unique experience for articling students. In each rotation I was immersed in files where I assisted in closing large transactions, drafted contracts, and interacted directly with clients. As a midsize firm, Minden Gross encourages students to take significant responsibility on files, which helps make the most of each rotation. Having the opportunity to work on matters from start to finish, I was able to see the value of my work on each matter and see them through to the end. Partners and Associates truly have an open door policy, reinforcing the culture of mentorship and support, where I felt comfortable going to Partners directly and getting answers to questions. I truly believe articling at Minden Gross provides a strong foundation on which to build a legal career.
