Three articling myths

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_Lawson-PeterRoundtree.jpgIt’s no secret articling can be stressful.

I did not have role models in the profession or a network of legal professionals to encourage me and show me that a career in law was possible for me.
