London Ontario Criminal Lawyer Articling Position

Posted By Administration, December 11, 2018
Articling 2019/2020 – Lakin Afolabi Law Professional Corporation – London, Ontario

Contact person:
Lakin Afolabi - Lakin@lakinafolabilaw.com
Website: www.lakinafolabilaw.com
Hours: No more than 8:30 AM - 6:30 PM (occasional weekend work)
Location: London, Ontario with a Kitchener satellite location
Compensation: No less than $625.00/week OR $500.00/week and payment of Law Society Licensing fees.
Application Deadline: 9:00 PM Eastern Time December 31, 2018

Lakin Afolabi Law Professional Corporation is a practice of criminal lawyers in London, Ontario looking for a dedicated and organized articling student to assist in all aspects of legal work including research, filing applications, providing opinions, drafting letters and memoranda, analysis of legislation, and assisting in the review of disclosure, court appearances, and the resolution and investigation of client files.

The successful candidate will be exposed to all aspects of criminal defence ranging from the initial consultation to sentencing. They will also (where appropriate and permitted by the law) be given carriage of their own files to conduct hearings and guilty pleas. The ideal candidate will have to be a self-starter with good time management skills and very nicely developed anticipatory skills. More than anything, the ability to take initiative and predict and undertake next steps in a process without being prompted is imperative in this office.

This law office practices criminal and quasi-criminal law almost exclusively with a recently formed real estate practice. The successful candidate should not expect to gain any meaningful experience in this area. The majority of our clients are private clients; however, some legal aid work is also undertaken. As a result, strong empathy is necessary as the ideal candidate will be interacting with individuals who are underprivileged, and suffer from mental health and substance abuse issues. The office culture is easy going, but the work is fast paced and unpredictable. Students are expected to manage their time well and produce results. The successful candidate will be expected to figure things out independently but will be provided the resources to do so and encouraged to ask questions when unsure. A candidate that proves to be indispensable to the practice will strongly be considered for an associate position upon successful completion of articling. If you are looking to gain hands-on experience dealing with and resolving real cases – we would love to hear from you.

Must Haves:

● Eligibility to participate in the law society of Upper Canada Articling process,
● Interest in pursuing criminal law as a career path,
● Initiative, conscientiousness, and anticipatory skills,
● Valid driver’s license. (In accordance with Human Rights laws we are open to special accommodation for extenuating circumstances where a candidate is unable to drive.)

Assets
● Ability to effectively prioritize and manage multiple complex files
● Organization skills
● Time management skills
● Proactivity in resolving problems without having to be asked to do so
● Research and drafting skills
● Personability and compassion balanced with objectivity
● Fluency in the Arabic and/or Spanish language is an asset, though not required
● Not easily offended

Application
Please apply by forwarding your resume, most recent law school and (where available) undergraduate transcripts transcript and a detailed cover letter outlining the nature of your past legal work and your specific interests. Also include a writing sample of your draft of comprehensive guilty plea directions. These would be the type of instructions that would be signed by an accused person prior to pleading guilty. These instructions would inform the accused of any consequences that they stand to face as a result of the plea and anything else required by law. Potential employees may be required to complete criminal record and reference checks as part of the pre-employment process.

Foreign trained/NCA students who will be eligible to start articling on or around June 1, 2019 are encouraged to apply. Applications from unqualified candidates will not be reviewed.

We thank you for your interest in our practice; however, only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.

Applications should be sent to: lakin@lakinafolabilaw.com
For more information about our practice please visit: www.lakinafolabilaw.com
