2024 Indigenous Summer Student Program: Firm and Organization Recruitment

Press Release

June 29, 2023

The Indigenous Summer Student Program (ISSP) is recruiting firms and organizations to participate in the 2024 summer student cycle. The Law Society of Alberta works with law firms, organizations and law schools across Canada to connect prospective employers with first (1L) and second-year (2L) Indigenous law students.

The purpose of the program is to:

  • foster opportunities for ongoing relationships to develop between the Indigenous students and practising lawyers;
  • provide an opportunity for Indigenous law students early in their legal career to obtain work experience in a law firm or organization; and
  • allow law firms and the legal profession to gain greater insight into Indigenous culture and issues.

Firms and organizations that are interested in participating can review the criteria for program and submit an application.

Over the past 18 years, this program has received ongoing support from many law firms as well as government and other organizations resulting in employment opportunities for 1L and 2L Indigenous law students. The Law Society does not have a role in the hiring process or the employment relationship, however, we will provide ongoing support and education to participating students, firms and organizations.

We encourage you to submit your applications as soon as possible, and if you have questions please reach out to the Program Coordinator.
