Calgary Summer 2023 2L Recruit Numbers

Hiring numbers remain consistent with last year

This year’s Calgary 2L recruit saw a reduction in employers with only 13 firms participating, compared to 22 in the prior year. Nonetheless, the total number of students hired remained stable with 62 successful candidates, compared to 65 successful candidates in 2022. 

This year, Norton Rose Fulbright hired the greatest number of students (10), followed by Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (eight). 

Consistent with last year, Alberta schools stole the show with 23 successful candidates from the  University of Calgary, followed by 10 successful candidates from the University of Alberta. 

Many employers noted that the low number of successful candidates from eastern schools was due to the lower number of applicants from these schools. One employer commented that they received fewer applicants from all Ontario schools and McGill University combined than from the University of Calgary alone.
