Positions in our Toronto office:
Our Toronto office hires several second-year law students to work from May through August. Summer students perform very similar work to articling students.
We generally follow the 2L recruitment guidelines of the Law Society of Ontario. However, as we do not participate in on-campus interviews, we will accept applications for summer positions up to Friday September 29, 2023.
Applications are accepted through the viLawPortal or can be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please scan your application materials into one attachment)
All applications must include:
- a cover letter;
- a résumé;
- copies of all law school and university transcripts (official transcripts are not required); and
- a list of courses you are enrolled in, or plan to take, in 2nd year and a list of the courses you hope to take in 3rd year.
Applicants may also wish to include reference letters in their application. If a referee prefers to send a reference letter directly to us, they may do so by email to: email@example.com.
For more information, please contact Vanessa Payne.
Positions in our Ottawa Office:
Goldblatt Partners’ Ottawa office is looking for two students to work for the period of May to August 2024. For the most part, summer students perform very similar work to articling students. They will also have a role in researching and updating certain chapters of the book “Trade Union Law in Canada”. Applications will only be accepted from students who are currently in their second year of law school.
Interested applicants are encouraged to apply via the ViLaw Portal. Applications for the summer position will open on December 8, 2023 and close on January 18, 2024.
Applicants should include a cover letter, résumé, writing sample, university and law school transcripts (including results from the Fall term, if available) and may also include written references. Preference will be given to students who have taken at least one course in labour law, labour arbitration or an equivalent course.
We will attempt to contact students who are selected for an interview by February 9, 2024. Interviews will be held at the Ottawa office or virtually between February 20, 2024 and February 29, 2024. The successful applicant will be contacted on Friday, March 1, 2024 with an offer of summer employment.
Goldblatt Partners LLP is committed to a culture of diversity and inclusion and encourage members of all equity-deserving groups to apply. We welcome applications from people with disabilities and will make accommodations available upon request for applicants who take part in any selection process.
