The Union-Side Labour Rotation launched last year, and remains one of the only opportunities for 1L students to learn about this exciting area of law.

How does the program work?

Students attend lunch sessions held by practitioners throughout the year where they are exposed to a variety of topics in labour and employment law. Students will visit firms, as well as meet and work with lawyers at some of the leading union-side firms in Toronto. Students will also produce public legal education materials for a community organization, under the supervision of lawyers from our partner firms. 

How do I get involved?

Space in the program is limited to 6 dedicated students who are able to make the 3-5 hour weekly commitment throughout the year, and who can attend a mandatory introductory training session in the fall.

If you would like to become involved in the Union-Side Labour Rotation, please submit a general PBSC application, available here, along with a 250-typed statement sent to the Union-Side Labour Rotation coordinators, Lilya Hassall and Meena Sundararaj, explaining why you would like to participate in the program.
