Stewart McKelvey’s articled clerks – many of whom are also musicians, adventure travelers, athletes and more – play an active role in client meetings, closings, mediations, administrative hearings, examinations for discovery, trials and more and are encouraged to pursue their diverse personal and community interests outside of the firm. The firm’s rigorous professional development program provides clerks with the breadth and depth of experience needed to build a career in litigation, advocacy or business law and is supported by the firm’s formal and informal mentorship opportunities.
