Mike Weizel, Articling Student and returning First Year Associate
“My time as a summer and articling student at Cassels was positive for a variety of reasons. From the outset as a summer student, the lawyers and staff throughout the firm made me feel welcome and provided me with the support that I needed to get my bearings in the first few weeks. After spending a year at the firm in total, that level of support has not faded as I’ve seen how the firm is committed to helping its students grow and learn throughout the process. If there was one thing that I would want to pass on to incoming and potential students, it would be to keep trying. Keep trying new areas of law and forget any preconceived notions that you may have about a particular area of practice. With an open mind and a focus on learning as much as possible you will give yourself the best opportunity to find the practice area that you are truly passionate about – and when you do – it won’t feel like coming to work at all.”
