Willis Business Law’s summer program provides a comprehensive learning experience. The program not only prepares students for articling, but also maintains an environment of education and self-improvement. The Willis Business Law team works together to ensure that students are being supported and coached constantly, while offering the autonomy for students to learn and grow through their work. During my summer I was given the opportunity to research a number of complex legal issues around commercial real estate and labour matters, draft several documents, and sit in on meetings with Founding Partner William Willis. Most importantly the summer allowed me to gain insight on Willis Business Law’s innovative approach to client service. I am truly looking forward to returning to Willis Business Law as an articling student this summer.

During my articles at the firm, I had the opportunity to work with a variety of corporate work. From complex leases to shareholders agreements and to employment issues, it was always interesting to learn about new industries while working on client matters. The lawyers include me in client interactions and always take the time to provide mentorship. I am proud to support our client from the beginning of a matter all the way to a successful closing.
