Our Students' Experience

  • Overall, my summer at Osler was rewarding. Not only did I have the opportunity to contribute substantively, the work was interesting and varied.  Osler allowed me to seek out work that I was interested in, while still providing me the opportunity to experience aspects of practice I had not previously considered.

    Osler is distinctly interested in the success of its students. Throughout the summer, students were provided the opportunity to attend professional development seminars touching on all practice areas. The seminars were instructive and allowed me to better understand the path I would like to take in my career. I would recommend a summer at Osler to anyone interested in gaining valuable experience.

  • My summer experience at Osler was everything I could have asked for and more. From the very beginning I felt that I was part of the team and that my contributions were valued and appreciated. Everyone at Osler was extremely enthusiastic about ensuring I had an outstanding summer student experience. I was able to attend and participate in a wide range of activities, including annual general meetings, court appearances and even conferences and presentations around the city on topics that I was interested in. The top-notch resources paired with the mentorship and support from all the great people I worked with truly made for an unforgettable summer.

  • My summer experience at Osler has been incredibly rewarding. The lawyers place a great deal of trust in the students and provide us with the opportunity to do challenging and meaningful work. Throughout my time at Osler, I felt like I was a valued member of a team that was invested in my success and continued learning. I was also able to seek out the work that I was interested in while also gaining exposure to several other practice areas. Everybody that I had the chance to work with was supportive, encouraging, and welcoming of questions, which fostered a great learning environment.

  • It was apparent from my first day at Osler in Vancouver that the office has a culture that fosters respect, collegiality and high quality legal work. Everyone, from legal assistants to partners, was ready and willing to take the time to teach us skills necessary for a successful legal career. The close-knit office provided the opportunity to work on a wide variety of legal matters in the corporate space. Everyone was clearly invested in our development as legal professionals. The Vancouver office truly offered the atmosphere of a small office with the resources and high quality work of a major firm like Osler.
