You can achieve your goals

Stikeman Elliott is the firm for students who relish the idea of living up to their potential. We won’t hold you back – we give you the autonomy and the tools to take ownership of your career path.

Student support systems are robust, but not restrictive

As a Stikeman Elliott student, you are empowered to control your future. We offer an incredible amount of support, but we won’t stifle your interests or ambitions.

Students can access a wide variety of resources for both practical questions and career guidance. Each Calgary articling student is paired with a partner who serves as a principal, as well as an associate who acts as a mentor, while each summer student is matched with an associate mentor. Nicole Lecours, Director of Professional Resources, is always available to offer guidance and counsel. And whatever your questions, your colleagues will always be happy to offer the benefit of their perspective on an informal basis.

We’re proud to be a part of Stikeman Elliott – you will be too!

In a city where lawyers have their choice of prestigious firms, you’ll feel right at home with the leading lawyers who have chosen to make their careers at Stikeman Elliott. 

Although our office is smaller than some other Calgary law firms, we are known for punching well above our weight when it comes to attracting a significant share of this city’s high-profile deals, cross-border transactions and litigation files. In addition to our industry-leading oil & gas practice, we are also widely recognized for our full complement of business law practices, including capital markets & securities, real estate, employment & labour, litigation & dispute resolution, regulatory and tax.

More importantly, we feel that your time here as a student is an excellent opportunity to learn from the best and brightest. Just as a gifted professor can inspire a passion for the law, working on a precedent-setting matter alongside a lawyer who is a master of their craft can develop your skills and influence your career path for years to come.
