“My summer at Goodmans has been unforgettable. Not only have I had the opportunity to work with lawyers in various practice areas, but I’ve also gotten to know and understand the Goodmans community – it’s a place where everyone will take the extra time to invest in students’ learning and growth.”
Farrah Kudus, Summer Student 2020
“My time as a summer student at Goodmans is filled with great memories of working on interesting files with even more interesting lawyers. Everyone at the firm was eager to get to know me as a person, find out my interests in the law and help me develop a strong professional foundation for the future.”
Zhiyao Chen, Summer Student 2020
“What differentiates Goodmans’ summer program is the emphasis placed on getting to know the people you work with and the informality amongst lawyers at the firm. The flexibility of the program and the diversity of work allows students to gain broad exposure to a range of corporate/commercial files.”
