Our pursuit of excellence begins with our Student Programs. We view each new student hired as a future associate and partner. Our goal is to see students grow with us and become part of our future success. At Siskinds, we realize that we are only as good as the people who work with us. We encourage individualism and creativity while providing a work environment that is enjoyable as well as rewarding.

Law Student Programs

Siskinds offers programs in both our London and Toronto offices with the opportunity for students to be involved in interesting and unique cases to further their practical experience.

London Summer Program

As a team, London students obtain work from lawyers and are encouraged to seek out work in areas of interest.

Toronto Summer Program

In Toronto, summer students become deeply involved in the firm’s class action files and take on a key role investigating new cases.

London Articling Program

London articling students work closely on more complex projects which may include civil motions, trials, administrative hearings, and labour arbitrations.

Toronto Articling Program

Toronto articling students work with the firm’s plaintiff class action team, which has repeatedly been ranked among Canada’s best

2022-2023 Articling Students

Student recruitment is key to Siskinds’ long-term success. We hire law students with the hope and expectation that they will become associates and then partners. It is therefore important that we recruit a group of highly skilled and diverse students.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Siskinds values and encourages equity, diversity, and inclusivity in our firm and our community. We recognize that there is always room for improvement and have implemented a number of measures to ensure that we continue to develop a strong and diverse workforce. Detailed information about our initiatives on these issues are set out here.

Library and Research Support

Students receive direction on their research from a variety of sources. We have a Research and Information Analyst who provides them with an initial orientation to the firm’s research and information services and is available to assist them with research and information needs throughout their student experience. We subscribe to various research databases. Students are also encouraged to make full use of the Middlesex Law Association library and the library of the Western University Faculty of Law.

Our Technology

Siskinds is committed to continually updating its technology to enhance all aspects of our legal practice – from communications to sophisticated litigation support and extensive information resources. Our advanced technological culture and top-of-the-line computer systems are fully supported by our Information Systems Department. We utilize a wide range of software, including imaging systems and databases, public and private research databases, calendar systems and remote access systems. Our high-speed, firm-wide internet access, custom databases, intranet and internal knowledge base have all contributed to our ability to easily and cost-effectively manage our data.

Collegiality & Involvement

Siskinds encourages students to be leaders in local charities and community groups. We believe our future associates should advocate for our community inside and outside the firm. During the program, students are invited to share in activities like our firm dinners, summer B.B.Q., Memorial Boys’ and Girls’ Swim-A-Thon, and our holiday celebration. We also host monthly catered lunches to allow lawyers and staff to socialize and get to know each other.
