No two days are alike.” Those words aptly summarize my experience as a summer and articling student at Langlois lawyers.

After arriving at the firm I quickly became involved in a whole series of files in various areas of the law, including a highly publicized one. I had the opportunity to prepare outlines of argument for litigators, to conduct a post-judgment examination, to draft various types of proceedings, to advise clients on strategy and even attend a criminal trial.

All these mandates were representative of the quality and importance of the work I was assigned as both as a summer student and articling student. In retrospect, this early step in my career was one of the most enriching I have experienced, thanks to the advice and support I was given.

I also found myself in a stimulating and welcoming workplace where the contribution of each member of the team is valued, regardless of the nature of the work he or she performs. My colleagues quickly became my friends, and the succession of social activities at the firm helped strengthen those ties.

With some hindsight, I can now say that articling at Langlois lawyers was an excellent decision for me. Very soon into the process, the firm’s lawyers got me involved in major files and ensured that I had all the necessary help and backup. As both a summer student and an articling student at the firm, I assisted lawyers during examinations, trials and closings of business transactions. In addition, the flexibility of the articling process at Langlois gave me exposure to several areas of the law, sharpening my reflexes in those areas, and confirming my attraction to business law.

Over and above the quality of the legal training I got at Langlois, I appreciated feeling part of a tight-knit and competent team that was responsive to feedback from me and my fellow articling students. I realized early on that the firm wants its students to succeed and does everything it can to help them develop into effective lawyers.

My summer spent as a student at Langlois lawyers provided a great foretaste of professional practice, as well as excellent preparation for the Bar admission course. I quickly became part of a welcoming and dynamic team that taught me a lot and allowed me to develop good work methods. I was involved in a variety of fascinating cases in very different areas. The mandates I was given were varied and beneficial to my training since the lawyers I worked with always gave me sound advice. Even though I was at the very beginning of my career, I always felt that they had trust in me and that I was fully a part of the cases I was working on.

Most of all, I quickly felt at home on the Langlois lawyers team, and I’m very proud to have been a part of it.
