Careers at Stirling
Law Students & Junior Associates
We enjoy meeting and talking to law students who are about to launch their legal career in Vancouver or elsewhere. Over the years, we have acted as mentors to a number of law students searching for articles, and junior associates trying to find their way. If you think it would be beneficial to you, we would be pleased to meet with you to discuss your legal career plan and provide any helpful insights we can.
“My summer student experience at Stirling LLP was excellent. I appreciate the opportunities I was provided to work on diverse assignments, but more importantly that I was treated like a lawyer. From day one I was given meaningful and challenging work and responsibility. I complete residential conveyances from start to finish, closed commercial financings, performed legal research, incorporated companies, and was involved in client meetings. The lawyers were supportive and provided guidance when needed. By the end of summer, I not only gained an exceptional grasp of the basics of business law, but also invaluable practice tips. The lawyers at Stirling genuinely want to set their students up for success. They are supportive, understanding, and patient. If you are a law student seeking exposure to business law and want great mentorship, I strongly recommend Stirling to you.”

“Working at Stirling was a fantastic introduction to a career in law during my 1L summer. I appreciated how the small firm environment allowed me to develop relationships with colleagues quickly and provided me with exposure to the full life-span of diverse files such as franchise transactions, refinancing agreements, and property transfers. Stirling also provided excellent mentorship opportunities. David and Warren were patient teachers who dedicated generous amounts of time to advance my understanding of both business law and the business of law. I would strongly recommend Stirling LLP to any law student or new lawyer looking to gain experience in business law.”
