We are always looking for ambitious and intelligent students with a keen interest in litigation, personal injury and medical malpractice to join our expanding firm. Each year, we typically hire one summer student (who has completed their 2nd year at law school) and one articling student. We have a record of hiring from each of the Ontario law schools. We are now accepting summer 2022 applications until November 30th, 2021.

At Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers LLP, the Summer and Articling Program is designed to expose students to every aspect of litigation and to provide them with the skills necessary to be a successful lawyer. Our student program is extremely important to help graduating students enter the work force with tangible legal training and is an important part of our firm's development and growth. We are extremely proud of our program and its success. Over 50% of our current lawyers started through the summer student program and are now an integral part the firm.
Our Summer and Articling Students are provided with practical hands on experience that only a smaller, boutique firm can offer. Students are provided with a wide range of assignments from all lawyers within the firm. They gain valuable experience in drafting pleadings, motion materials, facta and memoranda of law, as well as in the art of oral advocacy. Our students are expected to attend and argue their own motions before Masters of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, conduct Pre-Trials in Small Claims Court and appear on behalf of clients before various Tribunals, including the Canada Pension Plan, Social Benefits and Criminal Injuries.
Students may be given the opportunity to have carriage of their own files under the supervision of the responsible lawyer. Students are always encouraged to sit in and contribute to client meetings, examinations for discovery, mediations and pre-trials.
With practical legal training through active participation, with guidance of a mentor to provide insight and direction, we provide one of the most practical articling experiences in the city.
Students can expect to have one lawyer acting as a mentor for them. Typically, all student assignments are approved by the mentor. This way our students are ensured to have a constant, manageable flow of appropriate assignments.
We are always looking for ambitious and intelligent students with a keen interest in litigation, personal injury and medical malpractice to join our expanding firm. We typically hire one summer student (who has completed their 2nd year at law school) and one articling student each year. We have a record of hiring from each of the Ontario law schools.
Our compensation package equals or exceeds that of other Toronto firms of a similar size.
The student program at Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers also acts as our recruitment system. Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers articling program has been extremely successful for both the firm and the students. Each year we aim to hire one summer student who returns as an articling student and hope that that student will return as an associate the following year.
In the past five years, four of the past five articling students have returned to the firm as lawyers. We are confident that at the end of the articling term, our students will have developed a solid foundation for a career in civil litigation and acquired the tools necessary to excel.
