Student Program 


By combining a student workload with your studies, you can familiarize yourself with the firm's methods and procedures before you begin your articling period. Our student program will allow you to develop relations with members of our firm and learn more about your future career in law.

Summer Program

The summer program begins during the 3rd week of May and is offered to all of our future articling students who have completed the second year of their university law program. You will work full time for a minimum of ten consecutive weeks. At the end of the first week of training and integration, you will be assigned to one of our practice groups. In addition to quickly integrating into the practice group's activities, you will have the opportunity to participate in major and stimulating cases.

About ten weekly training luncheons will be given by our lawyers to help you develop your knowledge of our various practice groups. Breakfasts with the student committee will also be organized each week so that you can discuss the mandates in which you are involved with the other students.

Fall-Winter Program

Our fall-winter program's flex-time schedule allows you to work around your university or Québec Bar studies. You will not be assigned to a specific practice group like you were during the summer program. Instead, you will be given ad hoc or directed research mandates that will allow you to take the breaks you need to prepare for exams. To ensure continuity in your files and provide a better learning experience, we ask that students who are with us during the school year work a minimum of fifteen (15) hours a week.

Mentorship Program

We also offer a mentorship program. As a student with the firm, you will be paired with a mentor who will play an active and important role in helping you integrate and develop professionally.

 

Articling Student Program 


Professional internships are an important part of your career. Fasken Martineau offers a dynamic and rewarding articling period where you will draw the maximum benefit by working closely with our lawyers. During this time, you will become a full member of our team and work on big mandates in several areas of law.

We offer two articling periods – one starting in late January and the other in mid-June. Each articling period begins with three days of training and integration into the firm's community. Your articling period is made up of three rotations, one in each of the firm’s three major practice groups: Litigation (including Intellectual Property and Environment), Corporate and Labour. At the end of your third rotation, you will be asked to select the practice group in which you want to end your articling period for a last rotation of six weeks. 

Throughout your articling period, you will also attend the Lunch & Learn training sessions given by lawyers. Weekly breakfast meetings will also be organized with your articling period Maîtres de stage to discuss the mandates assigned to each articling student and exchange ideas.

Mentorship

The Maîtres de stage are supported by mentors from the three large practice groups. His or her role is to guide articling students in their professional development throughout their articling period. With each rotation, the articling students must select the mentor with whom they want to be paired.

Remuneration

Completing an articling period at Fasken Martineau will give you everything you need to launch a stimulating career. We offer our students and articling students competitive remuneration.
