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.

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.
