While providing services that span the entire spectrum of local government legal needs, Young Anderson enjoys a congenial and collegial atmosphere.

We offer students the opportunity to work in a sophisticated practice with a national reputation in local government law, while enjoying the benefits of a mid-sized firm. Articles and summer student programs at Young, Anderson are designed to further the education of students in all areas of the law as they are reflected in the needs of our clients. In addition to learning the basics of local government law related to legislation, governmental procedure, land use control, expropriation and litigation, students also receive experience in a variety of fields including real estate, corporate and business law, labour and employment law, tendering and construction law, First Nations law, environmental law, human rights and freedom of information and privacy protection law.

Our students regularly help with interesting and important work, under the supervision of our partners and associates, and every effort is made to give each student as much responsibility as they can handle. Our lawyers give students ongoing assessments of their performance on an informal basis.

Young, Anderson sponsors numerous social and recreational events throughout the calendar year for our employees and their families. We encourage our lawyers and students to maintain a balanced lifestyle, and we respect their commitments to family and outside interests.
