Edward Choi: Articling at MBB has developed me personally and professionally. I had the opportunity to handle and assist in a number of files including small claims, real estate, litigation, immigration, corporate, tax, and dispute resolution. Throughout my experience, I have not only learned the law, but also about working with clients and other parties, practical legal skills, and the operation of a law firm. I learned to use accounting and billing systems, timekeeping software, corporate search systems, and real estate and conveyancing software. I was blessed to have mentors who cared not only about my personal and professional development, but also my well-being. My MBB experience was invaluable for the preparation for the bar exams as I was able to directly apply my knowledge and experience whilst writing them. The skills and experience developed from MBB’s articling program has made me more confident as a lawyer knowing that I learned from skilful, experienced, and caring lawyers. I would strongly recommend this position to anyone considering articling.

J. P.: The articling experience at Metcalfe, Blainey & Burns LLP was challenging but rewarding. The first day of articling, I was given the task of revising a shareholder’s agreement – something that I have not had the opportunity to do in law school. The experience brought into perspective real world practice compared to theories learned in the classroom. The highlight of my articling experience was shadowing litigation counsel at discoveries. The opportunity to shadow litigation counsel enhanced my ability to assist clients with their legal hurdles as well as allowed me to witness, prepare for, and assist in a mareva injunction motion, which ultimately resulted in favourable results for the clients.– J.P. articling student for Sammy Lee (2014-2015)

Logan Gong: Articling at MBB Law provides you with a practical hands-on experience that you will seldom get at larger firms, all the while exposing you to intellectually challenging legal issues. Here you are not treated as a student-at-law, but as a lawyer-to-be. 

Fantasia Qian: Articling at MBB was a great balance of practical, hands-on experience and theoretical learning. The files that I was exposed to are varied in type and they gave me a wide learning opportunity. The fast-paced environment kept me engaged and on my toes, but even when I felt uncertain, I never felt lost because the MBB family was always there to help. The partners have all given me great mentorship and I cannot thank them enough for their patience and guidance. Each of them are superstar lawyers and together they have put together a superstar team. It’s my honour to be part of that team, and my articling experience as definitely been a great one.
