Questions about Applying and Interviewing for Student Positions
What do I need to include as part of my application? Should I send my application by e-mail, fax or mail?
Your application package should include your cover letter, resume, list of courses that you are currently taking or will be taking in the upcoming terms and photocopies of transcripts from all post-secondary education programs attended. We are also happy to receive reference letters, but they are not mandatory. We do not require writing samples. Please send your application via the online portal.
Please include an email address where you can be reached as we often communicate with candidates by email.
Our summer program is available to both first and second year law students. The deadline for applications for our summer program is the earlier of the on-campus interview deadline for your school or, for law schools without such a process, early October 2017.
When will I hear from your once I've submitted an application?
Once we receive your application, we will send you an acknowledgement of your application by email.
Can I contact students or lawyers at the firm in advance of my interview to ask questions that I have?
We encourage you to contact our current students listed on our website to discuss with them their experience at Stikeman Elliott. Please also feel free to contact Nicole Lecours, our Director of Professional Resources.
