Employ a U of T Law student

To ensure the quality of our services and to better assist students at the Faculty of Law, the Career Development Office (CDO) has established policies and guidelines for all recruiting activities. Our policies are intended to provide a framework for the professional relationships between employers, students, third party recruiters, and career educators.

Not-for-Profit and Public Interest Organizations

The CDO recognizes that not-for-profit and public interest organizations, which may not be in a position to offer funded roles, provide valuable co-curricular experience for our law students. As such, we are able to post summer opportunities, for which students may apply for funding through the Faculty of Law via one of our many summer fellowship and internship programs or via external funding.

The Career Development Office will not post articling opportunities that are unpaid, whether with for-profit or not-for-profit organizations.

Paid Summer and Articling Opportunities

For-profit employers who wish to post a paid summer or articling opportunity for our law students must be in a position to offer at least Ontario’s minimum wage and can submit postings through the University of Toronto Law Career Network (UTLC), which is our career platform for students.

Please use the "Sign Up" button on UTLC (law-utoronto.12twenty.com/hire) to register if you are a new employer or log-in if you already have an account with the 12Twenty system which powers UTLC.

Please note that posting an opportunity for our students is free of cost.
