The BCCLA is seeking an Articling Student to work in the BCCLA’s four core program areas, with an emphasis on litigation. Under the supervision of the student’s principal, the BCCLA’s Executive Director, and working frequently with the Litigation and Policy Directors, the articling student will assist and conduct litigation in a diverse range of practice areas including constitutional, criminal, and administrative law. The articling student will also undertake legal and policy research, draft legal and policy documents and engage in advocacy and education on behalf of the BCCLA.
We are looking for an articling student to start in October 5, 2020 (i.e. interested 3L students should apply).
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.
This is a 12-month articling student position (including the duration of the student’s PLTC participation) with a salary of $46,500; employer coverage of PLTC fees; and an extended benefits plan. This position is normally based at our office in Vancouver at #306-268 Keefer St. In light of COVID-19, this position’s work will be performed remotely until distancing measures are lifted; a laptop and access to all required platforms will be provided. The BCCLA will try to accommodate alternate arrangements wherever possible, in compliance with WorkSafeBC guidelines.
The deadline for applications is June 21, 2020 at 11:59pm.
