WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 

Like companies everywhere, law firms, businesses, corporate legal departments, and not-for-profit organizations are pivoting to respond to challenges — both internal and external — brought about by the rapidly changing economic environment. 


In partnership with participating Canadian law schools, Mitacs has launched a new initiative: a $10,000 internship program to provide law firms, companies and not-for-profit organizations with the support of law students through a four-month long project.

You get the knowledge and expertise from outstanding law students, while students gain real-world experience.

  • $10K for a four-month project: your contribution is only $5K 
  • Eligible projects must have a connection to intellectual property, business strategy, or be related to a response to the pandemic
  • Applications are accepted any time until March 8, 2021. Projects must start by July 15, 2021
  • Open to law firms, businesses, legal departments, not-for-profit organizations, municipalities, and hospitals
  • Please note that law student interns can provide legal information; if legal advice is required then the student must be supervised by a lawyer in good standing with the provincial law society 

Need assistance with IP or business strategy projects? law students can help!

SO, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

"From an immigrant’s perspective who is very new in this market, there is nothing more helpful than getting a locally trained graduate or student to provide support in business strategy. As a new entrepreneur myself, I lack operational knowledge, specifically in expanding and scaling profitability. I may be able to start an innovative venture on my own, but tapping into Mitacs’s BSI program is a gateway to bigger possibilities and opportunities."
