Baker Newby LLP’s articling program ensures articling students experience an appropriate mix of legal practice and education. It takes into consideration the desire of articling students to be actively involved in a significant way in the practice of law early in their careers. At Baker Newby LLP, we appreciate the articling year is a year of continuing development and education for students, whose ultimate goal is to become contributing members of the legal community.

Students who article at Baker Newby LLP rotate through both of the firm’s offices to gain exposure to all the significant areas of legal practice. They work directly with many of our members and obtain widespread experience throughout their articling year. Rotation allows articling students who bring particular skills or previous experience to Baker Newby LLP to further develop that expertise while gaining valuable and necessary experience in other areas. The result is a broad, hands-on learning experience which promotes interaction between lawyers, students, and clients, allowing students to quickly become an integral part of the firm.

To continue students’ more formal education in the law during the articling year, Baker Newby LLP’s partners and associates conduct seminars. These seminars, called BNU (Baker Newby University), focus on the practical and substantive areas of legal practice and include such topics as cross-examination and evidence.

Students articling at Baker Newby LLP are assigned to a principal and work with many lawyers in every rotation. Students receive and benefit from a broad spectrum of work and practical experience and have appropriate workloads. The principal takes primary responsibility for guiding and evaluating students during a particular rotation.

While we appreciate all applications, only those experienced applicants who are considered will be contacted.
