For Women in Law By Women in Law

Life as an articling student is exciting, but it can also be challenging. Our latest LiL initiative was created with women articling students in mind to help them thrive as they navigate the transition between the life of a law student and that of a new associate. LiL Leaders, typically associates whose experience as students is still fresh in their minds, are available to support you and answer your questions.

Let us lighten the load for you a bit…go ahead, we can’t wait to hear from you!
