With the closest law school being located in Edmonton, all of our lawyers and articling students have obtained their legal educations outside of the Peace Region. While many members of our team are from the area and have returned to practice law or work in the place that they have always called home, that is not the case for all of us. Many of us have relocated to the Peace Country and are happy to have made it our home. It is a wonderful place to raise a family, with good schools and extra-curricular programs and offering a wide variety of outdoor and athletic activities and a very strong sense of community.
Given that we provide a wide range of legal services we are able to offer articling students a diverse experience for their articling year and moving forward as practicing lawyers with our team. Articling students and junior associates are encouraged to take an active and hands on approach with their files including meeting with clients, drafting contracts, pleadings and making court applications, as well as fostering creative solutions to meet their client’s legal needs. Our partners provide guidance and feedback to allow our newest members to quickly hone their legal skills and advance their practice and competency in a manner that is not always available to students and associates in larger firms.
We are seeking articling students that are well-rounded individuals, interested in establishing themselves in the Peace Country and building a future with our firm. We are committed to providing the best service to our clients and place great importance on hard work, dedication, community service and commitment to excellence.
