Results a testament to hard work by Career & Professional Development Office

UCalgary Law is pleased to announce an articling placement rate for the Class of 2019 of 100%. Of the 127 members of the Class of 2019, 123 are fully placed in articles, one has received a full associate placement in Houston, one is a business owner and not seeking articles, and there were two non-reports.

Graduates are working across Alberta, Canada, and North America.

Career office director, Maryanne Forrayi, comments that her team’s number one goal is to help every student graduating from UCalgary Law secure articles, should that be the path they are seeking. 

“I am proud of our team who provides dedicated support to our students to that end, and also proud of our students who have demonstrated their ability to continually build their professional networks,” says Forrayi. 

This is the first time in the last five years that UCalgary Law has seen a 100% placement rate. Congratulations to the Career and Professional Development Office for all of their hard work helping our students secure articles.
