Innovation Boot Camp for Students

At Stewart McKelvey, it's our mission to develop T-Shaped Lawyers - individuals who bridge the gap between the practice of law and other disciplines. They lead projects involving legal technology, process improvement, project management, document automation, pricing and data analytics, and can help advance, as well as modernize, the practice of law and respond to the evolving needs of our clients.

We're thrilled to introduce our new partnership with the Institute for the Future of Law Practice ("IFLP"). In February 2020, we will select two of our summer law students to participate in IFLP's three week boot camp (expenses paid). This innovative program, hosted in Toronto in May 2020, is a unique opportunity for future lawyers to learn about the basics of what it takes to be a T-Shaped Lawyer.

As part of their summer experience working hands-on with our practicing lawyers at Stewart McKelvey, selected students will get the opportunity to work on one or more innovation projects utilizing new skills learned at IFLP.
