“Working as a co-op student at Clark Wilson was an invaluable, fulfilling experience.  The firm provided a true learning environment where I was given the tools to contribute and the feedback to improve. I was engaged in meaningful work by my second day; I wrote legal memorandums, drafted notices of claims, attended chambers, and helped prepare for client meetings. By the end of my term I had worked on files for almost every practice area.  What stood out more than the work was the people. The positivity and team spirit was almost as infectious as the COVID-19 virus that pushed my last month online. When the office went remote the entire team stayed just as connected as before with scheduled check-ins and warm emails transparently detailing the wins (and worries) of the day. I left my position with newfound legal and interpersonal skills that I can’t wait to apply in 3L and beyond.”
