As students, we are fully integrated into files, which allows us to see the big picture while developing an understanding of the fine details.

"The smaller size and collegial atmosphere of Stikeman Elliott’s Vancouver office ensured that right off the bat, I worked closely with associates, partners, and mentors who truly invested in my development. The amount of support I received from lawyers and staff motivated me to push the boundaries of my abilities.”
