Shared Articling Program

Since 2006, the ELC has partnered with over 20 law firms to offer shared articles in Victoria (including Woodward & Company; Devlin, Gailus, Watson; and JFK Law Corporation), Vancouver (including Ratcliff and Company; Camp Fiorante Matthews; Underhill Boise Parker, Gage & Latimer; Heenan Blaikie; and West Coast Environmental Law Association), and even Whitehorse, Yukon.

Students in the ELC Shared Articling Program spend half their articling term at the ELC and half at another firm. To learn more about the benefits of shared articles for both students and law firms, please see our ELC Shared Articles Program flyer.

The ELC is grateful to have received 10 years of funding from the Tula Foundation for our Shared Articling Program. With those very productive years under our belt, we shifted to a new model of funding in 2017 and wish to thank all of our new supporters, including the Law Foundation of British Columbia, the Sitka Foundation, the Oasis Foundation, the North Growth Foundation and our many friends and alumni who continue to support us so generously.
