Articling and Summer Positions
Our articling placement rate is typically one of the highest in Canada, ranging from 96-100% over the last five years. This level of job security for UCalgary Law grads has remained consistent, even in spite of challenging economic times. No one knows the Calgary legal market better than our Career and Professional Development Office, and no law school has stronger ties to the legal community in Calgary than ours.
Not only is our overall articling placement rate high, but so is the rate at which our students place at corporate law firms. Specifically, 67% of students in the class of 2020 that were seeking articles, secured them at a corporate firm.
Further, in 2020, our students received approximately 53% of positions being offered in the national Calgary market first-year recruit for summer 2020 positions. The next highest law school had approximately 14% of the market.
