Thank you for your interest in working with LEAF! Please see below for information about student internships/externships and placements.
Summer Law Students
During the summer, funding permitting, LEAF hires one or two full-time summer law students. Summer students must be enrolled at an accredited Canadian law school. The job posting for our summer student position(s) is posted to our website and advertised in Canadian law schools at the beginning of January, with an application deadline around the end of January.
We may accept additional student placements, capacity permitting. If your school provides funding for a summer student placement, please contact us by March 1 of the relevant year.
Law Student Interns/Externs
During the fall and winter school terms, we only take student interns/externs through our partner schools. We partner with Canadian law schools on a rotating basis. For the 2021-2022 academic year, we will be partnering with the University of Windsor Faculty of Law and the University of Calgary Faculty of Law.
While our capacity to take on student interns and placements is limited, we welcome your interest in conducting volunteer legal research for LEAF – for more information on volunteering with LEAF, please see our volunteer page.
