Cates Ford Epp provides qualified law school graduates with comprehensive and varied articles.
Our Student Program is to find and train exceptional law students. Our end goal is to hire on our Articling Students to become Associates and eventually have them become Shareholders of our firm.
Under the principalship of a senior lawyer and the supervision of a specified lawyer in each department, students spend approximately one half of the period of articles working in our litigation department and the balance of their articles working in our solicitors and corporate/commercial departments. Every effort is made to provide students with quality work in virtually all major areas of the law.
An education plan is reviewed at the beginning of articles with a mutual evaluation done midway through the year. Students are encouraged to review and discuss periodically with their principals and supervisors the practice checklist published by The Law Society of British Columbia.
Cates Ford Epp also recognizes the demands placed on students by the Bar Admission Course. Successful completion of the Bar Admission Course is the first priority and we provide students with the cooperation and resources they need to be successful.
We are aware of the challenges facing prospective lawyers in today’s market. We are also cognizant of the need for law firms to tap into new sources of energy, skill and enthusiasm. We welcome the opportunity to meet with qualified law school graduates, and extend an invitation to contact us at Cates Ford Epp.
