Law students are a driving force in the legal industry and at our firm. With a fresh perspective and a hunger for knowledge, our students are major contributors to our firm’s success. We are eager to grow young talent and continue to build up future leaders within our firm’s walls.  

Our second-year summer program allows students to experience our firm culture and environment prior to the start of their articling year. Our students handle a wide range of assignments including research, document drafting, and assisting with litigations and corporate transactions. This allows students to start their learning experience sooner and to gain an introduction to all areas of expertise at Loopstra Nixon.
