Why Article with Saskatchewan Justice?

One Program - Many Options

If you're looking for variety, and a well-rounded articling experience, Saskatchewan Justice may be a perfect fit!

The Ministry of Justice offers graduating law students a unique legal experience. Articling students rotate through three legal divisions: Public Law, Public Prosecutions and Civil Law. They spend three months in Public Law, three months in Prosecutions and four months in Civil Law.

Students have the opportunity to spend an additional month in an area of particular interest to them. Possibilities include:

  • One of the three legal divisions;
  • Court of Queen's Bench;
  • Provincial Court;
  • Saskatchewan Legal Aid Commission;
  • Dispute Resolution Office; and
  • Office of the Public Guardian & Trustee.

In addition, the Ministry of Justice arranges for students to spend a one month term with a private law firm of their choice to ensure their articling experience is complete. The Ministry continues to pay the students' salaries while they gain exposure to private practice.

Students also get an opportunity to tour the Regina Correctional Centre, the RCMP Forensics Laboratory and the Legislative Building.
