Experience Your Future: The BD&P Summer & Articling Programs

BD&P has a long tradition of working with the country's most promising law students. We understand the desire concerning your professional future and that your choice of firm for the important first stepping stone in the summer student or articling student program is not an easy one. At BD&P, we are committed to providing our students with the maximum amount of support while at the same time, encouraging independence and creativity. Over the years, BD&P's unique professional environment has greatly facilitated the professional growth of many lawyers and students, enabling them to enjoy the practice of law, while respecting and encouraging personal time and community involvement. We believe it can be difficult to acquire a comprehensive feel for BD&P without speaking directly to our lawyers and students and we encourage you to do so. Or come meet with us and gain a first-hand sense of BD&P's lawyers and working environment. Detailed information about our student programs can be found in our Student Brochure.

Please note that we are not participating in the 2018-2019 articling student recruit. We have filled or expect to fill these articling positions with students from our summer programs. However, we will still consider any exceptional candidate for an articling position.
