WHAT WE OFFER SUMMER STUDENTS:
Norton Rose Fulbright is committed to developing engaged and highly skilled legal professionals. In our Calgary office, that commitment begins with our summer student program. First and second year students arrive in early May and spend their summer working with great people, who also happen to be talented lawyers doing incredibly interesting work.
The work is challenging and rewarding and the setting is one of informality. As a summer student, all the tools for embarking on your legal career will be at your disposal. Every student is assigned mentors from different practice areas who provide guidance and facilitate a comprehensive experience at the Firm. That experience includes substantive legal research and document drafting; exposure to court appearances, transaction closing and client meetings; professional development sessions; and invitations to a collection of social events that take place throughout the summer.
Our aim is to facilitate your exposure to a variety of work and a variety of people, giving you the opportunity to determine which areas of law you might like to pursue in practice. Along the way, you will have the benefit of great mentorship, practical training and development, and meaningful feedback.
