Who should I email in a law firm for job opportunities?

Recommended Posts

I’m a 1L looking for a summer job/volunteer position. 
 

I am wondering who I should email at a law firm to inquire? Should I email HR or a partner?

Initially I was going to email HR, but one of the partners at the law firm I am interested in volunteering works in a very specific sector which requires a language thats not commonly spoken that I am fluent in. 

would I hurt my chances if I emailed the partner directly to inquire if they have any openings?

It definitely won't hurt your chances, particularly since you're looking to volunteer in the firm. Just email the partner. Worst case they ask you to email HR, but that's not going to be a detriment.

    • i'm a mature re-applicant with similar stats as well mature candidates tend to get interviewed which means later rounds of admission, not always the case though we're still fairly early in the process, so a lack of response is normal    
    • Yes I am. I completed my first BA in June of 2020. I am now just finishing up my last class for my second BA. 
    • An OCI firm didn’t cover your licensing fees? Yikes.
    • Yea, I was not planning on adding more debt to the ever-growing student line of credit, and OSAP. Im in my third year, and have been looking for a while now. I have other interviews lined up but I worry about taking the risk. Thank you for the insights! 
    • I wouldn't say Bond isn't a scam. But it is more difficult on the back end and you need to go into it with your eyes wide open to the consequences (and the admission office doesn't highlight those in their materials, that's for true).  I say this as a Bondie with a solid job in DT Toronto. Now that I'm further into my career no one pays any attention to where I went to school. So it can work. But it is harder to make it work.  That said. I reiterate the same advice that is littered on my profile: apply in Canada, try for Canada. Any of the "easier" aspects of getting in will be overshadowed by the challenges on the back end. Finding articles will be very difficult. And you'll be paying a massive student loan back at that point. And banks usually charge higher interest on foreign schools.  I discuss Bond with students on here semi-frequently, if you have specific questions PM me.
