Fasken runs two vacation programmes. As a vacation student you will be exposed to the realities of legal practice. Wherever possible, you will accompany attorneys to consultations with both clients and counsel and be given research briefs pertinent to live cases. There are also outings and some fun social activities, as well as opportunities to meet the staff of Fasken during informal functions. Numbers are limited, ensuring that each student receives sufficient guidance and allowing for a thorough assessment of each student’s potential. The firm has selected many of its candidate attorneys from the groups of vacation students.
