Articling Positions

Our philosophy is to ask our students to practise with us following their call to the bar.

We have found it mutually advantageous not to employ a rotation system in which students move from practise area to practise area. Our students are given assignments by all lawyers and report back to the lawyer giving the assignment. This allows the student to stay with ongoing files longer, while being exposed to a wide variety of legal situations during this important period. In a medium sized firm like Monk Goodwin LLP, this always works out to the student's advantage.

We also believe in giving the student a broad latitude of responsibility for files. This encourages initiative and accountability.
