The Scott Venturo LLP Experience

Lawyers at Scott Venturo LLP value the balance between their professional and personal lives. All lawyers at Scott Venturo LLP pursue outside interests and are involved in numerous extra-curricular, personal and professional activities.

Scott Venturo LLP offers a unique articling experience, giving our articling students exposure to all areas of the legal practice, while working in a boutique firm environment.

Students will gain experience in a number of critical areas including general litigation, both civil and commercial. Scott Venturo LLP has an emphasis on insurance defence work which includes personal injury, property loss, professional liability, coverage issues, and all other areas of insurance practice. We are also able to offer a student experience in family law, real estate, wills and estates, criminal law and general corporate/commercial work.

The following is a list of frequently asked questions on the articling program:

  • How many articling students does Scott Venturo LLP hire?
  • One student per year.
  • What is the firm’s hire-back ratio?
  • We regularly hire our students as associates.
  • What salary and benefits is Scott Venturo LLP able to offer?
  • Scott Venturo LLP offers compensation commensurate with other firms our size. We offer full benefits to our articling students, including medical and dental, life and disability insurance and full payment of Bar Admission Course and Law Society fees. We also pay the student’s full salary while attending the Bar Admission Course. We also offer a subsidized fitness membership.
  • Do you pay Bar Admission fees and professional dues?
  • Yes.
  • What is the start date for an articling position?
  • We are flexible and will accommodate the student’s needs.
  • What do we look for in an articling student?
  • We look for students with strong academic background, and solid law school marks. We also look for students with life experience. We believe it is an asset to have work experience in other areas before starting law school. We require superior interpersonal skills and a strong work ethic. At the same time, we look for students with interests outside of the law such as sports, politics and volunteer and community service.
  • Do you hire summer students?
  • Yes. Our summer student program is designed to feed into our articling program. Our goal is to allow students the opportunity to have exposure to the articling experience at Scott Venturo LLP while at the same time giving the firm the opportunity to assess the student’s academic and work abilities as well as their overall “fit” within the firm. Our goal is to be able to offer our summer students an articling position. As a result, we have an express preference for first-year law students.
  • Where should I send my resume?
  • All resumes should be sent to the Scott Venturo LLP office to the attention of Marney Lutz or by e-mail at m.lutz@scottventuro.com, and Don Detomasi or by e-mail at d.detomasi@scottventuro.com.
