Ana Lucia Lobos, 2019 Summer Student, McGill University

For me, Blakes was the clear choice for many reasons. I was drawn to the dynamic team of lawyers, all of whom made me feel at ease throughout the recruitment process and showed genuine interest in my career goals. Beyond its strong reputation and work on impressive files, Blakes invests in its people. The students I spoke to described a collaborative culture dedicated to mentorship. Over the course of my first summer, that has certainly been my experience. I have had the opportunity to work closely with lawyers on a broad range of mandates, each of which has been a valuable learning opportunity and chance to take on more responsibility.


Working alongside such a cohesive and supportive team of students and lawyers means that I look forward to coming to work every day. I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else.
