The Career Office coordinates interviews of our law students with some out-of-province firms during On-Campus Interviews (OCIs) each year in Saskatoon. These interviews are specifically for second year law student for the upcoming summer. The legal employers that attend are mainly from Calgary but there may be others from other cities. The event includes a day of interviews and then in the evening there is a reception.
When information for fall 2017 is available it will be posted. It is anticipated that the application deadline will be in September and Interviews are Oct 2, 2017. Students will be researching and doing outreach in the summer to prepare for the fall.
While a variety of firms participate in any given year, the majority of firms that typically participate are large firms in Calgary.
What types of positions are available?
The positions are for the upcoming 2L summer.
1L summer recruitment will occur in Januarly and February (Interviews may be during reading week).
Please note most firms use summer recruitment to fill articling positions. Therefore if you are interested in securing articles with one of the participating firms you may want to consider participating in the OCI’s. As well, you may want to be mindful of the recruitment timelines for the cities/provinces you are interested in articling with. Recruitment information can be found in the “Finding Work: Recruitment” section of the Career Office pages.
