Kitchener lies at the heart of Waterloo Region, a fast-growing metropolitan area of nearly 500,000 only an hour's drive from Toronto. Home to two universities (Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier) and one college (Conestoga), top-notch cultural amenities such as the Centre in the Square and the famous annual Oktoberfest celebrating the area's German heritage, "K-W" combines the affordability, charm and lifestyle of a mid-size community with the business and career opportunity of a larger center, offering the best of both worlds.
GGFI Law LLP offers a wide spectrum of legal experiences for students pursuing either summer or articling positions. The GGFI Law experience includes exposure to such areas as Civil Litigation, Family Law, Wills and Estates, Small Claims Court, the Landlord and Tenant Board, and Real Estate & Corporate/Commercial transactions. Carriage over Small Claims Court and Landlord and Tenant Board files allows students the opportunity to interact with clients, firm lawyers, opposing counsel, as well as the judiciary, and to gain invaluable hands-on legal experience. Our students appear before such judicial bodies as the Ontario Human Rights Commission, Provincial Offences Court, Small Claims Court, the Landlord and Tenant Board, motions and assignment court for the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, and arbitrations.
GGFI Law’s lawyers and staff provide a co-operative and helpful working environment to foster students’ legal development. GGFI Law views all students as not only potential future associates, but as potential future partners who can share in and contribute towards the ongoing success of the firm. Our students participate in monthly lawyers meetings to learn about the inner workings of a medium sized Southwestern Ontario firm. Your feedback is vital in the ongoing effort at GGFI Law to continually enhance the summering/articling experience.
GGFI Law embraces community involvement, striving to provide work-life balance for all of their employees. If you are interested in summering or articling opportunities with GGFI Law, please feel free to contact us.
