To become a lawyer in Ontario, candidates must complete either the Law Practice Program or the Articling Program to satisfy the experiential training component of the Lawyer Licensing Process.

 

KPA Lawyers has employed several articling students and proudly continues to do so. At this time, KPA does not recruit from the LPP program.

Students receive practical experience in litigation and practice management. This experience includes drafting court documents, representing clients in court, using industry software, and applying academic training in real cases.

Interested candidates are welcome to reach out to us at any time by clicking here.
