Lakin Afolabi Law Professional Corporation is looking for a dedicated and organized articling student to assist in all aspects of legal work including research, filing applications, providing opinions, drafting letters and memoranda, analysis of legislation, and assisting in the review, resolution and investigation of client files.
This rapidly-growing diverse law office started as a criminal/quasi-criminal practice and has since expanded to include family law, immigration law, and civil litigation. The ideal candidate must be a self-starter with good time management skills and very nicely developed anticipatory skills. More than anything, the ability to take initiative and predict and undertake the next steps in a process without being prompted is imperative in this office.
A strong sense of empathy is necessary as you will be interacting with individuals who are underprivileged, have mental health issues, and are battling addictions. The office environment is easy going, but the work is fast-paced and unpredictable. Students are expected to manage their time well and produce results. The successful candidate will be expected to figure things out independently but will be provided the resources to do so and encouraged to ask questions when unsure. If you are looking to gain hands-on experience in dealing with and resolving real cases – we would love to hear from you.
