Articling


We believe that our continued growth as a leader in the employment law field is best maintained by developing our lawyers from within the firm. Sawers McFarlane's Articling Program reflects our commitment to this philosophy. The Articling Program provides recent law school graduates with a unique opportunity to develop expertise in all areas of employment litigation within the firm.

We believe that the best way for our Articling Students to learn and grow is to provide them with immediate hands on experience from the commencement of their articles. At Sawers McFarlane our students have their own files, will run their own trials, and will assist senior counsel in all aspects of our practice.

We place a high value on the education of our students. Our Articling Program is designed for those who want to develop first class expertise as employment law litigators. Our articling students are bright, creative, and well-rounded individuals, who have superior law school grades. If you are interested in joining our team please submit your curriculum vitae to:
