Articling Hireback 2020

Recommended Posts

Weird that Miller Thomson’s numbers aren’t on precedent yet. They did their hireback weeks ago (it was not good).

Still no McCarthys either. Anyone know what's up?

Miller Thomson's numbers are up. Hired 6 out of 13 with one hireback in the Vaughan office.

Does anybody know about other firms that aren't up on PrecedentJD yet? Goodmans and McCarthys, for example, are still missing.

Yikes, January 2021 start date is rough

Almost sounds like they are hoping the hirebacks find other jobs before January

How does this make sense? $100,000/yr jobs for fresh calls aren’t just like, floating around out there.

I don't know about you but I couldn't afford to be unemployed for half a year waiting for that 100k

lol. If they didn’t want them they just, you know, wouldn’t hire them back.

What’s the alternative? The start dates are delayed because of a global pandemic that’s tearing up the economy.

Pushing the start date to the fall like the other firms?

What’s the alternative for the new hire who isn’t being given the option to begin earlier than January 2021

I hear you. They’ve put those new articling students in a really tough spot. Maybe if they’re lucky some of the other firms might be interested in picking up some extra articling students. I would imagine that’s very unlikely though.

Gowlings hired 7/16 apparently. Goodmans hired 11/14 but gave the other 3 contract positions.

Another article for those of us who weren't hired back just got posted by a former Bay Street lawyer about what to do over the summer and how to look for a job in the fall / winter. It's good - brutally honest in parts - but solid advice: [removed]

Any way to find hireback info for other cities like Ottawa or London?

    • It's the name of the law school building, not the law school itself. Queen's does not have a named law school like UBC does with Allard, for instance.
    • Language in the article is so confusing. So I understand the law school building is/was Sir John A. MacDonald Hall, but has the law school itself ever actually been referred to as that? 
    • Hey guys! For those of you who have been accepted or working on your application now, would you guys be able to help me with the diversity question on the application? Im kinda stuck on this one as I cant really think of what to write about. Reading on some online suggestions, a lot seem to suggest that diversity is not simply race, ethnicity, sexuality, socio-economic status etc etc. Would anyone be able to send some help??? 😥
    • This^ When I was offered an interview by the Treasury Board Secretariat (a gov't entity), the person on the phone said to me straight up they don't mind me putting them on my last day because the interviews are all scored quantitively. Gov't also doesn't care about the first choice game either - because again, they rank everyone by a score and just call from the top down until they fill their slots.   
    • Not yet decided, but a step in the right direction for sure. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/sir-john-a-macdonald-law-school-queens-university-1.5768385
