Work across the country
Students who obtain their JD from UCalgary Law are eligible to article in any Canadian province (with the exception of Quebec, which is a civil law jurisdiction). We have students from across Canada every year who want to work in their home province. The Career and Professional Development Office is well-versed in, and well-connected to, opportunities all across the country. We have strong connections not only in Calgary, but across Alberta. As well, we offer many opportunities to our students who hail from the West, including an annual firm hop, alumni reception and boutique and small firm event hosted in Vancouver. Employers from Toronto and Vancouver come on campus to recruit UCalgary Law students during formal recruitment processes. In recent years, we’ve helped students get back to Victoria, Winnipeg, Kamloops, Halifax, Saskatoon, Ottawa, and more.
Certification in Common Law in French
Offered in partnership with the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law, this program allows students with competencies in French to gain skills in French legal writing and advocacy, opening doors to more career opportunities, while helping to increase access to justice in both official languages.
