Downtown Vancouver firms to keep articling offers open to August 19

The Credentials Committee has announced that law firms with an office in the downtown core of Vancouver (west of Carrall Street and north of False Creek) must keep open all offers of articling positions they make this year until at least 12:00 noon on Monday, August 19, 2002.

This date is set each year pursuant to Rule 2-31 to ensure students have an opportunity to consider more than one firm's offer in interviewing for articles. The rule applies to offers made to second-year law students or first-year law students, but not to offers to third-year law students or offers of summer positions (temporary articles).
