You can achieve your goals

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

Student support systems that 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 won’t stifle your interests or ambitions.

Students can access a wide variety of resources for both practical questions and career guidance. Vancouver articling students are paired with a partner who serves as a principal, while each summer student is matched with a mentor. Carol Chestnut, our Director of Associate and Student Programs, is also available to offer guidance and counsel. If you have any questions, all your colleagues will 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!
