The time you spend at Cassels Brock will be challenging and rewarding, resulting in invaluable learning experiences - and fun. We don't want you to spend all of your time working, so we organize regular events during the year, both social and charitable (or something in between). Take a peek at our event photo gallery to see for yourself.
While our lawyers are undeniably hard-working, they are far from one-dimensional. After time for family and community, it’s hard to find time for personal interests and development. We’ve addressed this by having a regular lawyers’ lunch (students are invited too!) with interesting speakers who satisfy our interests beyond the world of law. Here are a few of our recent lunch guests:
