Start here. Succeed here. 

At Fillmore Riley, we know that the strength of our firm comes from attracting and keeping talented lawyers. We also know that when we invest in your future, we invest in our own. That’s why we take the responsibility of giving our students a comprehensive articling experience very seriously.

We offer our students a well-rounded, rewarding experience in a forward-thinking, full-service firm. As one of our articling students, you will enjoy a friendly, collegial culture and professional work environment that includes having your own office.

We have even developed our own “Gatekeeper System” that gives our students a consistent, well-balanced and manageable work flow. Read more about it at fillmoreriley.com/program-details
