We’re looking for articling students who are passionate about working with communities to uphold civil liberties and human rights across BC and Canada.
We are seeking two articling students – one to start in September 2018, and one to start in September 2019. Students will work in the BCCLA’s four core program areas, with an emphasis on litigation.
With a mandate that includes work on police accountability, patients’ rights, democratic freedoms, prisoners’ rights, national security issues and more, we are one of the most vibrant and visible advocacy groups in Canada.
The BCCLA is a small team with a big reach, and we want you to be a part of our work.
Under the supervision of the student’s principal, the BCCLA’s Executive Director, and working primarily with the Litigation Director, the articling student will assist and conduct litigation in a diverse range of practice areas including constitutional, criminal, and administrative law.
The deadline for applications is June 29, 2018. Students in 3L are encouraged to apply early and we will evaluate applications on a rolling basis.
The BCCLA is committed to building an inclusive and diverse workplace, and strongly encourages applications from all qualified applicants. Applicants from traditionally underrepresented or marginalized groups including Indigenous people, people of colour, and LGBTQ+ people are welcome to self-identify, should they feel comfortable in doing so, in their cover letter.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
