Why Stikeman Elliott

Why do the best and the brightest choose Stikeman Elliott Toronto?

You can achieve your goals

Stikeman Elliott is the firm for students who aspire to live up to their full potential. We won’t hold you back – we give you the autonomy and the tools to take ownership of your career path.

Student support systems that are robust, but not restrictive

As a Stikeman Elliott student, you are empowered to control your future. We offer an incredible amount of support, but won’t stifle your interests or ambitions.

Students can access a wide variety of resources for both practical questions and career guidance. We recognize the importance of mentorship to your success. Each Toronto summer and articling student is paired with three mentors (a partner and two associates) for the duration of their placement – in addition to the informal mentor relationships that you naturally develop with other lawyers. Ellen Dalicandro, our Assistant Director, Talent Management, and the other members of the Toronto Students Committee are also available to offer guidance and counsel.

We’re proud to be a part of Stikeman Elliott – you will be too!

Let’s face it – it’s always nice to be a part of a highly regarded firm that is recognized as a leader in the field by survey rankings, clients and competitors. Stikeman Elliott is a top-tier Canadian corporate law firm that attracts a significant share of high-profile deals, cross-border transactions and litigation files. Our students work on matters for sophisticated clients operating in the national and international arenas.

More importantly, we feel that your time here as a student is an excellent opportunity to learn from the best and brightest. Just as a gifted professor can inspire a passion for the law, working on a precedent-setting matter alongside a lawyer who is a master of their craft can develop your skills and influence your career path for years to come.
