1L Indigenous Summer Student Program

Miller Thomson is a firm dedicated to fostering Diversity and Inclusion in the communities in which we operate. We are proud to lead the way with our committal to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada‘s call to action to advance the reconciliation process.

Our 1L Indigenous Summer Student Program is the first of its kind in the country, providing:

  • work experience at a leading national law firm;
  • exposure to a variety of practice areas; and
  • the opportunity to expand professional networks.

The program runs a duration of 12-16 weeks, from May to July/August, with two paid positions available: one each in our Vancouver and Edmonton offices. Applicants must be an Indigenous student in their first year of study at a Canadian law school and able to demonstrate strong ties to their Indigenous community.

All qualified applicants will be given the opportunity to participate in the interview process. The 1L Indigenous summer students will be considered for 2L summer student positions in advance of the OCI process, based on performance evaluations.
