Apply for a summer student position in our criminal lawyer firm

We are accepting applications for a summer law student job in our Kamloops criminal lawyer firm

Over the past two summers, Smith Law Group has hired summer students with a strong interest in criminal law. The students gained practical experience working under the supervision of defence lawyers Brad Smith, QC and Danielle Ching McNamee.

“The experience law students gain in working in our Kamloops criminal law firm helps them on their journey to become lawyers,” said Brad Smith, QC. “It’s a great opportunity which I’m pleased to offer to a student who is especially interested in criminal law. They will learn about criminal law and procedure, and experience the day-to-day operation of a busy, criminal defence law firm.”

Our lawyers practise criminal law, defending clients against all criminal charges, including assault, sexual assault, and murder. We also have a busy practice in police law and disciplinary proceedings. We serve clients throughout BC, including Kamloops, Quesnel, Williams Lake, Vernon, 100 Mile House, and Kelowna.

During the summer position, students can expect to attend court to watch legal proceedings and conduct research and writing. The full-time, paid position generally runs from the beginning of May to the end of July and is based in our Kamloops office. Our employees are fully vaccinated.

We invite first or second year law students to forward their résumé, transcripts and cover letter to Danielle Ching McNamee. Please be sure to describe your interest in criminal law, police law and disciplinary proceedings.
