Cavalluzzo is looking for students who show a strong interest in union-side labour and social justice. Our current practice is to hire four articling students per year. Although not essential to a successful articling application, most students who are offered articles with the firm demonstrate an interest in our areas of practice and highlight that interest in their application material.
Applications should include a résumé, the names of two to three references and/or reference letters, as well as information on how we can contact these references during late July and August, and transcripts from law school, undergraduate and graduate school (if applicable). We place considerable weight on applicants’ performance in personal interviews.
We follow the Law Society's procedures governing articling recruitment by firms located in Toronto, which may be obtained from the Law Society of Ontario website. Applications for the 2020-2021 Articling Term must be received by Friday, July 5, 2019. The firm will contact applicants to schedule interviews no earlier than 8:00 a.m. on Friday, July 19, 2019. Interviews will be held between Monday, August 12 and Wednesday, August 14, 2019.
For those students selected for an interview, we require a writing sample (i.e., appropriately anonymized pleadings or submissions from clinic work, or a law school paper or research assignment).
Cavalluzzo is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women, members of racial minorities, indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
Cavalluzzo is committed to accessible employment practices that are in compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act ('AODA'). If you require accommodation for a disability during any stage of the recruitment process, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org.
