Chaitons’ summer student program is designed to provide students with an introduction to the workings of a fast paced law firm and real world legal experience.

As a motivated team of lawyers, we provide practical, hands-on experience. Our summer students are counted on to carry the same responsibilities and to have the same opportunities as our articling students and we expect that the experience of summering will provide our students with a great head start on the articling process.

We accept summer student applications in accordance with the timelines established by the Law Society of Upper Canada in respect of positions in the City of Toronto. Please refer to the Law Society’s website for the current application deadlines. Please note that we do not conduct on campus interviews. Instead, we conduct our first interviews with summer student applicants during the Toronto interview week selected by the Law Society.

If interested in a summer student position, please submit your cover letter, resumé, undergraduate and law school transcripts, listing of upper year courses and references via the viaDesktop online portal at  VILAWPORTAL or sent to or by mail using the following address.
