The Sherbrooke practice falls under four broad sectors: business, labour and employment, litigation and taxation.
As members of a national team, we can tap into the firm's far-ranging expertise to meet the specific needs of our clients. By virtue of our coast-to-coast reach, we can also offer our clients the benefits of our extensive network of business contacts.
Summer and Articling Student Programs
When we hire a student or an articling student, we're betting on his or her potential as a future partner of the firm. Each year, to meet the needs of our Sherbrooke office, we hire one or two summer students, and one or two articling students.
The articling period lasts for a continuous period of six months. Summer articling students usually start working in early June, immediately after completion of their studies at the École du Barreau. A winter articling period generally begins in early November.
We encourage our future articling students to work at the firm during the summer preceding their registration at the École du Barreau, so that they can familiarize themselves with the office environment before their articling period begins. Students who feel they can combine working at the firm with their bar school studies can also choose to work on a part-time basis during the school year.
Those working in the Sherbrooke office rotate among the major practice areas of the firm during both their summer employment and their articling period. This gives each student the opportunity to work within three of the main practice groups of the firm, i.e. business, labour and employment, and litigation. Articling students rotate among the main practice areas for three successive periods of equal length.
How to Apply

Thus, if you wish to apply for a position at the firm, you should provide us with your résumé, together with an up-to-date transcript of your university grades on the ViRecruit portal or through their faculty's Career Development Office.
- Each application is reviewed by the Student and Articling Student Committee, which then decides, based on all the information submitted, whether to invite you for an interview. You will be notified of this decision without delay.
- During your first interview, you will meet the members of the Student and Articling Student Committee responsible for recruiting at your faculty. If you are invited for a second interview, you will meet with lawyers from each of the firm's main practice groups. Final selection of candidates is made following the second interview.
