Articling at The City of Calgary

City of Calgary Law is headed by City Solicitor and General Counsel, Jill Floen. Law includes 60 lawyers ​along with paralegal and administrative staff. Law functions as a full service legal firm for the corporation. There is a wide variety of work which often relates to high-profile matters of public importance.

Law hires one student for its Articling Program each year. The student gains knowledge and experience in each of the Law's sections including:

  • Civil Litigation,
  • Corporate Services,
  • Planning & Environment,
  • Prosecutions,
  • Real Estate & Expropriation, and 
  • Research, Legislative Services & Administrative Law.

Articles expose students to a great variety of legal issues. Lawyers here have an open door policy. Lawyers spend time with the student to assist and direct them. Law has a full-service library managed by professional staff.​​​​

My articles at The City of Calgary Law and Legislative Services provided me with a great deal of experience in many areas of practice. I did not realize how fulsome The City's articles would be and loved all the opportunities that were provided to me. Former Articling Student​
