Law Society of Upper Canada Articling Program

After completing a law degree, the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) requires candidates to complete a 10-month articling program with an approved Articling Principal before becoming licensed to practice law in Ontario. Articling Principals must meet certain eligibility criteria and are approved by LSUC.

This practical training period enables candidates to apply their formal training and become prepared for entry-level practice. Candidates must find their own placements and LSUC provides some resources such as the Articling Registry and the Mentorship Program to help with the search for a placement.
