    Post articling

    The Law Foundation has once again funded an articling position for CIPPIC, during the 2007-2008 year

    Fees for "Articling" $25.00 and "General Public" $50.00.

    What does "Articling" mean in the above sentences?

    Thanks for your help.

    [Not a teacher]

    Artcles the noun can be a period of training for certain professions, including the legal. To be articled (verb) means to be employed as a trainee in such professions.

    I've not heard of 'articling' before.

    Background About Articling

    Students who intend to practice law in any province in Canada must first spend a specified period of time as an articled law student. Articling terms generally extend from 10 to 12 months and commence in the summer following a student's graduation from law school.

    Where Do Our Students Article?

    While the vast majority of our students article with medium to large full-service law firms, other students satisfy articling requirements at public interest organizations, government agencies, corporate in-house legal departments, or at boutique firms which specialize in family, labour, health or criminal law.
