Candidate Attorneys

Skills transfer is encouraged by involving candidate attorneys in projects as part of a bigger team - exposing them to broader skills and vast experience.  You will be actively encouraged to join in and engage with voluntary committees and key elements in civil society. This interaction gives you access and exposure to the changing political and social landscapes. It assists you when advising clients and shapes your thinking on matters beyond just the legal sphere.

Fasken Martineau does not employ more candidate attorneys than it can accommodate as associates after the completion of articles. This means that there will always be a place at the firm for those candidate attorneys who, during articles, have displayed the necessary skills to become future directors of the firm.
We consider candidates with any undergraduate degree plus LLB, a four-year LLB or Master with LLM.
