Our Student Program

We believe in students and actively invest in you.

Why join a mass of students grinding through huge files with little variety, minimal lawyer support and zero client contact? We invest enthusiastically in building and nurturing your talent, are excited to welcome you, and do whatever we can to give you a rewarding experience. 

We are a boutique business law firm with a 80+-year history of developing multi-generational client relationships in the heart of Toronto’s financial district. Join us and gain exposure to long-standing partnerships with small and medium-sized businesses across Canada, Europe, Asia and the US on a wide variety of issues, and practice core areas of business law, including corporate/commercial, real estate, and employment law, and estate planning and administration.

  • Enjoy an inspiring and challenging work environment immersed in the practice of law through a wide range of assignments in various practice areas – and still have time to enjoy life.
  • Work in a culture founded on a strong sense of client partnership and collaborative, efficient teamwork.
  • Know that your contributions are valued and recognized.
  • Receive sincere and frequent thank-you’s.
  • Learn while working closely with senior lawyers whose doors are open. We will never give you “busy work.”
  • Have a real opportunity to nurture relationships with our team and our clients as you engage in active legal matters.
  • Benefit from meaningful feedback in the moment and tasks that build on drafting, critical thinking, practice and client management skills.

We are proud of the skills and successes students have achieved with us. If you seek a hands-on approach, can be counted on to go the extra mile in applying stellar judgment and attention to detail, and see clients as more than just the matter at hand, we invite you to apply to Houser Henry & Syron LLP for a truly rewarding experience.

Houser Henry offers a salary and benefits package comparable to other similarly sized firms in downtown Toronto.

Summering at HHS was both a challenging and rewarding experience. I was given the opportunity to participate in meaningful work on interesting and complex files which varied from large asset purchases, share purchase agreements, estate planning and commercial real estate deals. As a student in a boutique firm, I was entrusted with a great amount of responsibilities as well as daily contact with clients. The friendly, warm and supportive culture at HHS created an optimal learning environment whereby my skills as a young lawyer flourished. While the learning curve is steep, the firm’s partners and associates would always take the time to explain the law as well as where my work fits into the bigger picture of the file or transaction. This informal mentorship as well as weekly student seminars provided me with a wealth of resources to improve my legal practice. HHS is dedicated to improving our efficiency, practicality and creativity in providing client services, and the tasks I was given reflect these values. I immediately felt that I was a valued part of the team and that my ideas were on equal footing with my colleagues. Overall, my experience at HHS has been exceptional, exceeding all my expectations and I can envision a future career here.

2017 Summer Student and 2018 Articling Student
I started my legal career at Houser Henry, and I could not have asked for a better environment for professional development. I summered and articled here and returned as a licensed lawyer. Houser Henry’s clientele is diverse, with complex and interesting files. Throughout my time here I worked on matters ranging from estate planning to contentious shareholder disputes to international acquisitions. Some of the most rewarding projects were those where I was able to assist bright entrepreneurs in shaping and growing their businesses. The Houser Henry team is full of committed and ambitious people who constantly strive for progress and improvement both as a firm and as individuals. Whether you are just entering the legal field or continuing to evolve your practice, Houser Henry offers opportunities to learn and make an impact.
