Check out our 2022 - 2023 Articling and Summer Student Opportunities!

We are currently seeking outstanding candidates for our 2022/23 law student articling and summering position opportunities. We want to build relationships that will last beyond a summer or an articling year, and that will eventually grow into long-term partnerships. Over and above impressive accomplishments, we are on the lookout for candidates with exciting potential – to develop into capable, confident, and successful lawyers.

If you are looking for exposure to a full-service suite of legal learning opportunities in a professional and collegial firm where you will gain experience in several areas of legal practice, receive individual mentorship, and become an invaluable part of the community, please submit your cover letter, resume, and copies of official transcripts for all legal and undergraduate studies below addressed to Tammey George, Chief Operating Officer.

Your cover letter should clearly communicate who you are, what motivates and inspires you, what your current goals are, and how you see yourself complementing the Watson Goepel legal team. Letters of reference and writing samples are not required but may be included.

About you

It goes without saying that you are an academic high-achiever – after all, you’ve made it this far! But you are also an enthusiastic self-starter, an involved community member, and curious about the world around you. Hard-working, with a growth mindset, you use feedback to improve and take a hard-working, positive approach to all that you do. You don’t shy from learning new skills and putting your ideas forward. You understand the importance of work-life balance and know that what feeds you outside of work will make you a healthier and happier person and, therefore, a better lawyer.

About us

We offer an immersive, hands-on learning experience for students. We provide a friendly, fast-paced, and professional work environment. Your assigned mentor will ensure that you have the opportunity to work in each of our practice areas. You will be supported by our team of experienced lawyers who remember what it was like to be a student and are committed to providing practical skills and supports during summer and full articles.

Application Deadlines

Watson Goepel LLP will be abiding by the Vancouver Bar Association’s Student Recruitment Guidelines. Applicants who are selected for the interview process will be contacted directly by the articling selection committee.

  • Articling submissions – Due June 30, 2021
  • Summer student submissions – Due September 1, 2021

We look forward to hearing from you, and sincerely thank you for your interest.
