Articling Jobs in Hamilton 

Amendment of LSO Articling Procedures for Hamilton To Be Approved as Requested

December 17, 2018

The Hamilton Law Association forwarded a request to The Law Society of Ontario earlier this year to amend their articling recruitment procedures, specifically those related to Hamilton. We have received notice that the LSO intends to amend the 2020-2021 articling procedures so that Hamilton is brought into alignment with the dates and times of all other firms in Ontario, outside of Toronto and Ottawa. This means that all Hamilton firms are permitted to make offers of employment to articling candidates on the same day, in this case three weeks earlier than in previous years, as other firms in the province.

Please read communication letter HERE.

In advanced of the articling recruitment calendar, please remember that any articling position available in Hamilton can be advertised on the Association’s website for free, specifically under our Articling in Hamilton tab. To submit an available articling posting, please email for more information and to advertise.
