WHY APPLY TO BROWNLEE LLP

As a law student, it can be easy to see all law firms as one vast conglomeration of lawyers, files and statutes. Even if you have had the opportunity to meet or know some lawyers and visit law firms, or even if you have worked in a law firm before, choosing the right law firm for you can be a daunting task.

Brownlee LLP is a Western Canadian law firm with offices in Calgary and Edmonton, providing the breadth and depth of service of a full-service law firm throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Yukon, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. With extensive and long-standing practices in almost all legal disciplines, our Civil Litigation, Municipal and Administrative Law, and Business Law groups remain the cornerstones and core strengths upon which we continue to build extensive specialized and unique practice areas.
