For more than 80 years, our firm has focused on insurance defence and personal injury litigation with equal emphasis. It is unlikely that any other boutique firm in Ontario can make a similar claim.
For this reason, articling students at WILL DAVIDSON are provided with an invaluable opportunity to learn the litigation process from the perspective of both a plaintiff and a defendant. Whether working on complex cases for a large corporation or focusing in on a single case for an individual, the practical experience gained better prepares our students for a career in litigation.
Our students work directly with the members of our legal team to research, prepare and argue cases in court. Our students make important contributions and we welcome their energy and their enthusiasm.
To inquire about articling, please contact the Chair of the firm’s Articling Program, Paul Cahill.

“Articling at WILL DAVIDSON provided the challenges and rewards one looks for in a foundational articling experience. A unique element here was the opportunity to work on both Plaintiff and Defence files, with a high degree of responsibility. Not only was I given specific assignments to complete, I was also tasked with the day-to-day management of certain files under the guidance of a senior lawyer. This was an invaluable experience. Arguing contested motions and conducting my own Small Claims Court trial comprised the highlights of my advocacy experience during articles. Working alongside knowledgeable, engaging and approachable litigation counsel provided the supportive working environment critical to the success of these efforts. In short, articling at WILL DAVIDSON provided me with the experience and confidence necessary to successfully begin my career as a litigator. I would recommend it highly to those with aspirations of a career in civil litigation.”

“Over the course of my articles at WILL DAVIDSON, I was presented with many challenging opportunities including working directly with clients, arguing complex motions in the Ontario Superior Court, and assisting with trials. These experiences allowed me to build a rapport with the clientele and develop skills as a litigator. In terms of a working environment, not only did the lawyers at WILL DAVIDSON provide mentorship, they also created an environment where I felt comfortable approaching them with questions. My articling year was truly a memorable experience.”
