Candidates are responsible for finding an articling placement with an approved Articling Principal. There are several initiatives and supports to assist candidates to find an articling placement.
Candidates must ensure that the Articling Principal is approved by the Law Society prior to starting the placement. The Law Society may not recognize placements started with an unapproved Principal.
The Articling Registry enhances awareness of available articling placements for Ontario articling candidates. Law firms, legal organizations, law students and licensing candidates may use the registry for finding paid articling placements.
Candidates may submit a one paragraph summary of their qualifications to Articling, Licensing Process, Licensing and Accreditation Department of the Law Society for distribution to potential employers and others who have contacted our office in search of an articling candidate. If you are an employer who is able to offer paid articling placements and would like a copy of this form, please contact our office.
