Evans, Philp is a litigation boutique. The firm acts in civil proceedings on behalf of persons claimed against and their insurers.  and insurers. The practice involves (amongst other things) torts, civil procedure, administrative law, contracts, and statutory interpretation. We represent our clients in both the court and tribunal settings. Our students obtain exposure to civil litigation under the supervision of the Student Committee and in the midst of peers and along our lawyers.

In addition to performing work in litigation, commensurate with their skill level, our summer students will also be encouraged to pursue available educational opportunities and participate in firm events. We take the development of our students seriously; many of EP’s lawyers came through the same program. 

Please note that our lawyers have long been involved with the careers personnel at Ontario law schools, and often participate in panel discussions and networking events related to litigation and the student experience. Articling information will also often be a worthwhile introduction to what is out there, even as you start out.

We invite you to review the information relating to the Articling Program for additional detail.
