Summer Students

Bryan & Company LLP is pleased to invite you to join our team. We are a well-established full-service firm in Edmonton, Alberta in both the transactional and litigation arenas. We belong to an international network of firms named Ally Law. Our office is known for our collegial environment, flexible career paths, and entrepreneurial spirit.

In addition to our articling student program, Bryan & Company recruits one or two first year law students each year for a 4-month term from May to August. The intent of our summer student program is to provide students with practical legal work experience in an informal program directed by mentors representing our major practice areas. Summer students can begin to develop practice management skills and get a preview of their future articling experience. Our summer students are a part of our firm culture, taking part in social events and getting to know the team.

Instead of spending the student experience conducting research and drafting memos while being sheltered from clients, our students can expect a more varied and client-focused experience interacting directly with clients, lawyers, drafting documents, attending court appearances and assisting with conduct of files from early in the process. We believe this approach fosters rapid learning, not only of the practice of law, but of how a law firm operates as a business and how to best serve clients. Our goal is to create an environment that allows our students to develop knowledge of the law and become well-rounded professionals in their preferred area of practice.

Students are encouraged to observe and shadow our lawyers whenever possible, to give first-hand experience with day-to-day life at our firm and the practice of law. We also endeavour to give students a wide range of assignments directed at expanding their knowledge and legal skills. As we do for our articling students, our goal is always to create an environment that allows our summer students to develop knowledge of the law and become well-rounded professionals.

Please stay tuned for more information about our next Summer Student recruit!
