“Articling at Vogel LLP was an exceptional learning experience. I was welcomed by all and treated as one of the team from my first day. I was provided with vast opportunities to develop my skills through involvement in matters proceeding to mediation, arbitration, Chambers hearings, Trial and the Alberta Court of Appeal. I felt the lawyers at Vogel LLP really cared about and were invested in my learning such that they would regularly take time to meet with me to review my work and provide feedback.

“The articling experience is an important period of time for any lawyer, it is the stage between the completion of your law degree and the beginning of your professional legal practice. Vogel LLP recognizes this meaningful stage in a new lawyer’s life and provides articling students with the tools they need to hone their time, file and practice management skills. I do not think that I could have had a better articling experience than the one I had at Vogel LLP. The firm made sure that I was able to be involved in and meaningfully contribute to a variety of areas, allowing me to gain new skills while supporting same. When I found a particular area more interesting, the firm also encouraged me to develop that interest. Regardless of what area I was in, I was always supported by peer mentors and my principal, who gave me the guidance and practical feedback I needed to excel.” Aida A. Rafie
