Mills & Mills LLP’s articling program fully involves a student in all of the facets of the practice of law. A student’s articling experience will include file and practice management, interviewing clients and witnesses, planning and assisting in the conduct of matters before various courts and administrative tribunals, fact investigation, problem analysis and legal research, developing writing and drafting skills, negotiations and advocacy. The firm strongly believes that to benefit from a meaningful and rewarding articling experience, a student should not only be presented with problems to identify and solve but should also participate in the implementation of the solutions and to see the results of his or her work. A student may look forward to receiving considerable responsibility and challenge throughout the articling program including the opportunity to work on files through a series of stages and to have direct client contact.
There is no pyramid structure at Mills & Mills LLP. All of the firm’s lawyers of all levels of experience work directly with the students, providing instruction, professional guidance and advice. The size of the firm and the firm’s open and collegial atmosphere encourage interaction among all lawyers and students in the firm.
The articling program is supervised by a committee of partners of the firm who meet regularly with each student to monitor each student’s progress and provide constructive feed-back throughout the articling program.
In addition to developing legal competence and confidence, the articling program provides an opportunity for and encourages participation in the firm’s social and recreational activities.
