Toronto Student Program and Beyond
Our student program takes a broad view of our students’ development and sets them up for success in their legal careers.
Where you Start
Our students start their careers with an in-depth orientation program focused on legal skills, practical knowledge and firm integration. We aim to provide each of our students with the tools necessary to build a career in law, and to make connections with colleagues, clients and staff with whom we all work.
Our students work on a variety of matters and gain experience with many different type of assignments. Some examples of work our students have done in the past include:
In addition to work assignments, our students are also given the opportunity to gain exposure to dispute resolution in its many forms including mediations, negotiations, arbitrations, tribunals and court proceedings. Our students are also taught about the business side of law by assisting with business development initiatives associated with new projects including industry presentations, articles and other speaking opportunities.
In addition to work experience, students have the opportunity to learn through mentorship and professional development training. Students are formally matched with an Associate Mentor who is available to provide guidance and support throughout the student experience and beyond. Other informal mentoring relationships develop naturally with partners, paraprofessionals, associates and staff. Our lawyers model corporate social responsibility and our students are also encouraged to be involved in our communities.
Students are provided with in-house training through our Singleton Reynolds Institute program during Orientation Week and beyond. Toronto and Vancouver students participate together in several sessions through video-conference, including Student Expectations, and Workload Management. We encourage our team to continuously share their knowledge with others. Our lawyers teach students outside of the firm at a number of post-secondary institutions.
Every lawyer who works with a student is encouraged to provide developmental feedback as work is produced, and students are encouraged to seek out feedback after each assignment. Students also benefit from a formal feedback process at the half-way point and towards the end of their program.
Summer and articling student salaries and benefits are competitive with firms in downtown Toronto. Our summer students also have the option of taking five paid vacation days or 4% vacation pay. Any summer student who accepts a position to return as an articling student the following year will receive a bonus payable towards their law school tuition.
“My experience as a student at Singleton Reynolds has been rewarding and engaging. I was initially drawn to the firm for its expertise in construction law. The lawyers are passionate about the work that they do. Everyone has been eager to share this knowledge and passion with me. Everyone that I have worked with has taken the time to provide context to the task assigned, invite questions and support throughout, and offer thoughtful feedback afterwards. From research and writing to drafting, each task has made me feel as though I was making meaningful contributions to the team.”
