The firm generally hires one or two articling students each year. A significant part of the student's responsibilities involve criminal law. The student must appear in Provincial Court on a daily basis to deal with bail applications and remands for the criminal department, and conduct interviews in the Provincial Remand Centre. The articling student may also be asked to conduct trials in Small Claims Court. Students are required to have access to a vehicle, as they may be required to travel to Headingley Correctional Institute, Stony Mountain Penitentiary, the Manitoba Youth Centre, or city police stations to meet with clients.
In addition, the articling student will be given legal research and drafting assignments, generally for the criminal, labour and civil litigation lawyers. Where scheduling with other duties permits (and the firm will attempt to facilitate this), the student will also have opportunities to junior at a labour arbitration, labour board hearing, or civil trial. In order to provide well-rounded articles, we encourage our students to seek out opportunities in other areas of the law, including family, corporate and commercial, real estate, and wills and estates, particularly as these areas correspond to the CPLED course topics. The articling student's principal helps to oversee a well-rounded articling experience.
Myers has an informal and friendly office atmosphere. Lawyers and students are invited to attend a monthly luncheon intended for presentations on various topics, or for less formal discussions and learning amongst lawyers. Students are encouraged to spend time with the lawyers to discuss their work, as well as the CPLED course topics.
The firm provides a competitive articling salary, along with full health and dental benefits. The firm also provides indoor parking for the articling student. All costs associated with the CPLED course are paid for by the firm. In addition, fees for continuing education programs the student wishes to attend will be paid for by the firm. The firm provides two weeks of paid vacation.
Many past articling students have been hired as associates after their call to the bar, but the firm cannot provide assurances in advance. To request more information about articling at Myers Weinberg LLP or to submit a resume, please contact Michael Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
