The Indigenous Summer Student Program (ISSP) for 1L and 2L law students is recruiting firms and organizations to participate in the 2023 summer student cycle.

The purpose of the program is to:

  • Provide an opportunity for Indigenous law students early in their legal career to obtain work experience in a law firm or organization; and
  • Foster opportunities for ongoing relationships to develop between the Indigenous students and practising lawyers; and
  • Allow law firms and the legal profession to gain greater insight into Indigenous culture and issues.

Firms and organizations that are interested in participating can review the criteria for program and submit an application on our website.

Over the past 17 years, this program has received ongoing support from many law firms as well as government and other organizations resulting in employment opportunities for Indigenous law students. The Law Society does not have a role in the hiring process or the employment relationship; however, we will provide ongoing support and education to program participants, firms and organizations.

We encourage you to submit your applications as soon as possible, and if you have questions please reach out to the Program Coordinator.
