  • A practitioner with the maturity and self-motivation to be responsible for the day to day management of litigation files with the assistance of a mentor as appropriate;
  • A confident individual who is comfortable with oral advocacy at conciliation and directions on a regular basis; and
  • A good team player who appreciates the importance of collegiality and collaboration.
