1L Indigenous Law Student Program

Miller Thomson is a national law firm dedicated to fostering Diversity and Inclusion in the communities in which we operate. Miller Thomson prides itself on the quality of services provided to clients and our ability to attract and retain top legal talent. We deliver dynamic solutions in all facets of business law and are uniquely pan-Canadian, offering legal services in more cities than any other national firm. 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 Indigenous Law Student Program is the first of its kind in the country, providing participants with:

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

Students will be with the firm for approximately 12-14 weeks, starting in May. The program offers one paid position, in one of our offices. Applicants must be an Indigenous student in their first year of study at a Canadian law school and be able to demonstrate strong ties to their Indigenous community. In 2023, the 1L Indigenous Law Student position will be based in our Vancouver office.
