    Hey! Did City of Toronto call you earlier today or now? Trying to figure out if they stagger calls.

    law student career transitions

    Hey Im entering my third year in law school this september, in my 1L summer I worked at a personal injury firm, in my current 2L summer I am working at a full service midsize firm in the personal injury department , I have taken a few courses focused on business law and I loved it, and as of right now I would love to gain some experience in this field, more than just that I wish to gain experience in a multitude of legal areas ie. I wish to work in a full service bay st firm and rotate through the departments accruing knowledge of different areas as a result 1) How do I show firms that I want to be involved in business law rather than personal injury even though this where I have built my experience? 2) Is it possible to "get stuck" in particular areas of law after being in them for a certain period of time? 3)What steps can I take to make myself more appealing to the full service bay st firms? 4) would rotating through different legal areas in this stage of my career be an advantage of a hindrance? I can see how the exposure to different areas can be perhaps beneficial, but would the lack of specialization in any given area make me any less competitive e.g. against individuals who have been only learning in one area of law for years Thanks in advance, I really appreciate the help

    Articling Advice

    Hello I was hoping to gain insight into my situation I am a summer student at a mid size firm in Toronto, I am participating in the articling recruit process at the end of this month My desire is to work in big law in downtown, i realize this is a competitive process but Its my goal 1) I dont know how to ask my current summer firm for a letter of recommendation because I dont want to alienate them and give the appearance that I am not interested, which is not the truth I love the people in the firm and although I want to shoot for big law in downtown I would be very appreciative and happy with an offer for articling from this firm, but it also slightly concerns me that they have yet to offer me anything 2) any general advise on articling and how I might work way to bay st? Thanks in advance
