Summer Students

Program

For the 2018 summer program, we will only be hiring first year students in Calgary and Edmonton.

During a summer with our firm, students can expect to work in a number of practice areas and receive assignments that are varied and interesting. Students are also given the opportunity to attend training sessions, seminars and practice group meetings, as we value and support ongoing legal education and professional development.

Summer students are viewed as an integral part of our firm. As such, summer students are invited to attend Field Law’s social activities, ranging from informal lunches to organized firm social events including client functions.
