Each year, the Judges of the Supreme Court of Canada select law clerks from the graduating classes of Canadian schools of law. In Ontario, the year spent as a law clerk is credited as articling time. To assist qualified students in seeking judicial law clerkships with the Court, the Faculty of Law has instituted a formal program to aid in the application procedure.

The Supreme Court of British Columbia also selects law clerks from the graduating classes of the law schools. While preference is given to graduates of British Columbia law schools, graduates of other Canadian schools are also considered.

In addition, each year, outstanding students who have completed service under articles and the teaching portion of the Bar Association Course are invited to serve as Law Clerks to the Chief Justice of Ontario, the Chief Justice of the High Court of Ontario and the Chief Judge of the County and District Courts. Further information regarding these positions may be obtained from the Dean's Office.
