TGF is a dynamic law firm committed to training students to become exceptional lawyers. We provide top quality files, hands-on experience, direct client contact and ample supervision. At TGF, students can expect to receive a comprehensive and rewarding learning experience.

TGF typically hires one articling student per year. Our articling program is focused on active student participation. As such, students are given a great deal of responsibility early on in their careers. Students can expect to:

  • Draft pleadings and facta
  • Prepare motion materials
  • Appear in court on opposed and unopposed matters
  • Conduct legal research
  • Have carriage of their own small matters

Supervision and Rotation

Although students will have the ability to work with all lawyers in the firm, students are assigned two articling principals – one for the insolvency practice and one for the litigation practice. This ensures that students receive a broad exposure to both areas of law.

Compensation

We provide compensation that is competitive with large, national law firms in Toronto.

Applications

For applications, please follow the recruitment guidelines prescribed by the Law Society of Ontario, and submit your cover letter, resume, transcripts and letters of recommendation via viRecruit Portal by July 5, 2019 at 5:00 pm. Writing samples may be requested from applicants selected for an interview.
