THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE AT MLT
from experienced lawyers and interact with clients.
Learning is the focus of the student experience at MLT. We encourage you to learn about the law and its procedures, and we will vary your work experience to make this happen. There will be research, but there will also be "hands on" experience in everything from attending trials, hearings and examinations for discovery, to drafting correspondence, meeting with clients, developing strategies for negotiations and preparing commercial agreements. Your articling rotation will expose you to as many of our lawyers and clients as possible.
Your principal will be a partner who has expressed an interest in mentoring young lawyers. We will also assign an associate mentor. The mentors' role is to provide guidance on office and practice procedures, client relations, file management, and ethics and professional responsibility, as well as work performance.
You will be granted specific days off to work on Bar Admission assignments, and will continue to receive your salary during your studies. We encourage all our lawyers to attend professional education conferences and seminars, and provide regular in-house seminars for our lawyers and students.
to challenging work projects and volunteer in the community.
The complexity of the work assignments at MLT provides opportunities for our students. We represent a number of significant clients and the challenging legal work they require is similar to assignments undertaken by large regional and national firms.
We represent national and continental insurance companies, chartered banks, health associations, multi-national corporations, world-leading mining companies, First Nations and other governments, railways, investment funds and major regional real estate developers. Our significant mandates include the Hibernia project, an international joint venture in uranium mining, the Milgaard Inquiry, and the North Battleford Water Inquiry.
We are committed to making our communities better places for all, and we encourage our lawyers, staff and students to volunteer with charitable and community organizations that interest them. We also provide opportunities for students and young lawyers to expand their personal networks.
to a team that values family and workplace collaboration.
We provide a supportive work environment where students feel at home. Students are welcome to seek assistance from any lawyer in the firm, and we provide first quality legal and technical support. Our goal is to help our students become outstanding lawyers and good citizens leading balanced lives.
Socializing with colleagues is important in developing strong working relationships. We provide opportunities for interaction at annual lawyers' retreats and dinners, and at firm Christmas parties, family outings, sporting events and other informal social events throughout the year. Students are encouraged to participate in all firm and local Bar Association activities.
Today's students will be tomorrow's partners, so we look for students whose personalities, values, work product and work ethic fit with our work and practice philosophy. Our retention rate for students over the last ten years has been very close to 100%.
