2013 Call from Out-of-Province for Associate Position

Printer-friendly version

I am a lawyer with membership in the Law Society of Saskatchewan seeking an associate position in Halifax. I have been enrolled in the LLM program at the University of Saskatchewan for the past two years; I anticipate my thesis defence date will be in September, and must find employment before that time. While I have found several prospective employers in other parts of Canada, I would like to stay in Halifax.

A National Mobility Transfer would allow me to practice in Nova Scotia. It is my understanding that the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society sometimes requires that transferred members complete a period of supervision with a member of the NSBS. See http://nsbs.org/sites/default/files/cms/policy-procedure/transferanothercdnjurisdiction.pdf

Before I restore my practicing status in Saskatchewan and apply for a National Mobility Transfer, I would like to consider my options of potential supervisors in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

While I am eager to learn nearly any area of practice, my particular interest areas are:

  • Civil litigation and risk-management advising
  • Regulatory offenses and regulatory compliance advising
  • Criminal law
  • Commercial liens and other secured transactions
  • All aspects of employment law, including labour relations, occupational health and safety, and human rights accommodation

If your firm is considering hiring an associate, I look forward to hearing from you!

Please email adam.rw.north@gmail.com or phone 306-251-2978.

Expiry Date: 
Tuesday, August 18, 2015
