Our Student Program
Soloway Wright aims to hire three summer law students and three articling students to work out of our Ottawa office. Summer students work with the firm from May to August, with the intention that these law students will return to article with us the following year. While Soloway Wright accepts applications from prospective articling students, we do not generally conduct articling interviews as part of our recruitment process. We accept applications both directly and through the viLawPortal.
Soloway Wright Coffee Chats – 2L Summer Recruitment
Soloway Wright LLP is pleased to invite students participating in 2L summer recruitment to attend one of our virtual Coffee Chats*. During the virtual Coffee Chats, students will have an opportunity to meet lawyers and current students from our firm and to get to know Soloway Wright prior to the recruitment application deadline. The Coffee Chats will host a maximum of six students with either one or two lawyers and one current articling or summer student so that students can see what Soloway Wright has to offer its prospective students.
The Coffee Chats will be hosted in December 2023 and January 2024 (dates will be posted closer to the time). Coffee Chats offer a unique opportunity to see firsthand why Soloway Wright is a great place to start your legal career.
- Space is limited – Coffee Chats are intended solely for 2L Law Students who are seeking a summer student position for 2024. If you’re a 1L student, and are interested in learning more about Soloway Wright, contact us, and we’ll organize something at a later date.
If you have any questions about the Coffee Chats, please email our articling committee.
The Articling Committee, chaired by Sanjay Srivastava, is responsible for the selection and hiring of Soloway Wright’s summer students and articling students. The chair is also the liaison to the rest of our lawyers, ensuring that every student has a fulfilling and valuable experience as they prepare for their call to the bar. Meet the other members of the Articling Committee:
