“As a summer student, I have been delighted by the wealth of opportunities I have been given to contribute to meaningful legal work. Clark Wilson encourages students to take initiative and immerse into their unique legal interests. Within the first month of my summer, I attended client meetings and chambers applications, drafted opinion letters, and wrote research memos. Supervising lawyers are generous with their time, guide us through the multi-faceted issues of each file, and urge us to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn.

As well as being provided with excellent mentorship, I feel so privileged to work in such a caring and supportive environment. Everyone’s enthusiasm for what they do is infectious. All the lawyers and staff I have interacted with have shown genuine care for my professional development. I am incredibly grateful for the variety of formal and informal support that Clark Wilson has in place, going above and beyond to help each of their students succeed.”
