“Applying for the Finlaysons clerkship program is by far the best career choice I’ve made to date. The program exposed me to areas of law that I had not contemplated but ended up really enjoying. It is very well structured, with a mentor to ensure that you receive varied and interesting work and a buddy to be your ‘go-to’ practitioner for any question you may have. I was fortunate enough to be offered a full-time permanent position as a lawyer at the conclusion of my clerkship and remain working as a lawyer in the corporate department.”
