Canadian Lawyer 1
During my time with Canadian Lawyer, Legal Feeds and Law Times I felt very welcome and was treated as an employee, not just an intern. Getting the opportunity to work for three different publications was very valuable — I never found myself sitting idly. They gave me room to explore my own ideas, pitch stories and go out on my own and report. I did not feel stifled there, which is very important. The internship really helped me improve my pitching skills. Leaving Canadian Lawyer, I felt confident that I had made contacts within the publication to look to for pitching freelance pieces. I was published online and in Law Times, a newspaper for lawyers.
Depending on where you live, it can be a long commute.
