My internship at AVENS was a very rewarding and enriching learning experience for me. The possibility of doing a rotating internship in both the corporate and litigation departments allowed me to receive a complete training that proved to be a golden opportunity to discover myself and to map out my career path. I had the opportunity to work on mandates that were as diversified as they were interesting, and I was able to plead alone in court as early as my second week of internship.

I was quickly seduced by the human and warm culture of the firm. The trust, the respect, the availability and the team spirit at AVENS confirmed my chance to join this great family!

Doing an internship at AVENS means jumping into the challenges and joining a close-knit and dynamic team. From my first days as an intern, I was given diverse and formative mandates. I had the feeling of being really involved in the files, having quickly been led to have important responsibilities. I learned exponentially!

I particularly appreciated the corporate culture at AVENS, where the human dimension and team spirit are just as important as rigor and surpassing oneself. As a young professional, I greatly value the relationships I was able to develop with experienced mentors. I couldn’t have hoped for a better environment to lay the foundation for my career in law.

I started my internship during the COVID-19 pandemic, requiring me to do a significant portion of it remotely. Despite these special circumstances, I was warmly welcomed and quickly felt part of the team. As soon as I arrived, I was involved in several stimulating and diverse projects. I was called upon to make numerous representations before the courts, to draft procedures, to conduct legal research, to communicate with clients and to manage my own files. At AVENS, articling students are given a great deal of trust and independence.

Being part of such a team is an incredible privilege. The partners, lawyers and support staff are all exceptionally warm, competent, dedicated, and passionate individuals. The work environment and the team are truly inspiring and motivating.
