Promotion of French Law Practice Program & Internships

Posted By Administration, September 9, 2019
Now in its sixth year, the French Law Practice Program (LPP) at the University of Ottawa has a proven track record in the legal community.

The success of the uOttawa LPP can be attributed to the generous support that we received from the legal community. More than 200 lawyers from across the province have participated in the uOttawa LPP in some way since its beginning. We hope to build upon this great momentum again this year and ask you for your support to continue our mission of training future lawyers who can offer high quality legal services in French and in English and who can rise to the challenge of practising law in the 21st century.

You can participate in the uOttawa LPP by offering a four-month placement (from January to April 2020) to a uOttawa LPP candidate.

Why offer a placement to a uOttawa LPP candidate?


• Access to “practice-ready” interns: Before starting their placements, uOttawa LPP candidates will have undergone an intensive four-month practical program in a simulated law firm during which they will become familiar with 9 areas of law (administrative law, business law, civil litigation, criminal law, employment law, family law, immigration & refugees, real estate, wills and estates), as well as all aspects of the legal practice, including communicating with clients, legal research and writing, strategic thinking, oral advocacy, electronic firm management, time management, billing, developing a business plan, as well as networking.
• Increase your organisation’s capacity to provide French services: All uOttawa LPP candidates are fluent and able to provide legal services in French. Our program includes a rigorous legal writing and oral advocacy component in French.
• Access to bi-jural and bilingual interns: Many uOttawa LPP candidates are trained in both civil law and common law and are bilingual.
Promote access to justice: By providing a placement to a uOttawa LPP candidate, you contribute to training the next generation of lawyers ready to offer legal services.

If you wish to learn more about offering a placement to a uOttawa LPP candidate, please contact Christiane Saad, Director of the uOttawa Law Practice Program by telephone at 613-562-5800 (extension 1011) or by email at csaad@uottawa.ca.

Maintenant dans sa sixième année, le Programme de pratique du droit (PPD) de l’Université d’Ottawa a fait ses preuves. La réussite du PPD est grandement attribuable au généreux soutien que nous avons reçude la part de la communauté juridique francophone. Plus de 200 avocats de la province se sont impliqués dans le PPD depuis son début. Nous entamerons notre sixième année en septembre 2019 et nous avons besoin de vous pour garder la flamme bien vive ! Participez au PPD et aidez-nous à promouvoir l’accès à la justice pour les francophones en Ontario en formant des futurs avocats en mesure d’offrir des services juridiques de qualité en français et en anglais et prêts à relever les défis de la pratique du droit du 21e siècle.

Vous pouvez prendre part au projet en offrant un stage de 4 mois (janvier à avril 2020) à l'un de nos candidats.

Pourquoi offrir un stage à un candidat du PPD ?


• Accès à des stagiaires prêts à exercer leur profession : avant de commencer leurs stages, les candidats du PPD devront suivre un programme de formation pratique intensive d’une durée de quatre mois. Ils et elles se familiariseront ainsi avec 9 domaines de droit (administratif, commercial, criminel, emploi, famille, immigration et réfugiés, immobilier, litige civil, successoral) ainsi tous les aspects de l’exercice de la profession juridique, notamment la communication avec la clientèle, la recherche et la rédaction juridiques, la prise de décisions stratégiques, la plaidoirie orale, la gestion informatisée d’un cabinet, la gestion du temps, la facturation, l’élaboration d’un plan d’affaires, et le réseautage.
• Capacité accrue de votre organisation de fournir des services en français : tous les candidats du PPD de l’Université d’Ottawa maîtrisent parfaitement la langue française et sont donc en mesure d’offrir des services juridiques en français. Le PPD de l’Université d’Ottawa comprend une composante rigoureuse de rédaction juridique et de plaidoirie orale en français.
• Accès à des stagiaires bijuridiques et bilingues : un bon nombre de candidats du PPD de l’Université d’Ottawa ont reçu une formation en droit civil et en common law et sont parfaitement bilingues.
• Promotion de l’accès à la justice : les avocats qui exercent à titre de conseillers juridiques jouent un rôle crucial pour ce qui est de promouvoir l’accès à la justice. En offrant un placement à un candidat du PPD dans votre milieu de travail, vous contribuez à promouvoir l’accès à la justice en formant la prochaine génération d’avocats aptes à exercer le droit dans ce type d’environnement.

Communiquez avec Me Christiane Saad pour en apprendre davantage au sujet de notre programme de stages, soit par téléphone au : 613 562-5800 (poste 1011) ou par courriel : csaad@uottawa.ca .
