Articling Leads - personal injury

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any articling leads (2019-2020) for PI in southwestern Ontario - Windsor, London, Hamilton, KW and maybe Ottawa?  Came across a few in Toronto but cost of housing is too high.

Still looking.  If you have any leads please PM me.  Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I work at a top 10 PI law firm in Barrie. When I was applying I showed up to a few firms in the area to drop off my CV personally. One of the partners at the firm called me and interviewed me personally the next day. I work here now.

Most PI specialist firms are not huge and there are not usually set dates, just individuals who apply. Try some of these firms they are all leading in the field: https://www.canadianlawyermag.com/author/alexia-kapralos/canadian-lawyers-top-10-personal-injury-boutiques-3632/

Thanks but you may have lucked out.  I called at least 10 different PI firms in Southwestern Ontario and all of them told me they are not looking for an articling student - and this was after ruling out the ones that participate in more organized recruits and hire a year in advance.  The leading firms you listed are usually the ones that have more organized hiring and typically well in advance.  The trick is to somehow find the "leftover" ones.

    • I have lived in Kingston all my life and have recently been accepted into Calgary Law and still waiting on Queen's. So I would also appreciate a comparison of the law schools. Obviously I think a majority of it comes down to where you want to practice law as it would be harder to transition from say Calgary to Ontario if you went to Calgary Law and vice versa.   In regards to Kingston as a city: In the summers Kingston is one of the best places to live. It is very warm, has great patios, restaurants and festivals, etc. The job market however is not strong and you would most likely look to Toronto for summer employment.  In the winter Kingston gets cold, a lot colder than Toronto. There is not much to do... thats about all I can say about that. Students typically live in something called the 'Ghetto', which is right beside the university and walking distance to downtown.   Is there anything in particular you would like to know about Kingston ?
    • I added up U of T's tuition fees in each year ($38,233.45 for 1L, $38,183.45 for each of 2 and 3L), and then subtracted the sum of UBC's tuition ($12,639.36 for 1L and $11,849.40 for each of 2 and 3L).  In fairness, I did miss UBC's student fees, which are "approximately $1,100 per year for J.D. students", so I guess that drops the price difference to $74,962.19.
    • That is what mine has been for months as well.
