Vacation Clerkship Program

The ODPP actively contributes to the training and development of future lawyers by running a Vacation Clerkship program.

The ODPP offers a number of vacation clerkships during the mid-year (winter) and end of year (summer) University semester breaks. Vacation clerkships are offered to law students who are typically in their last year, or second last year of study.

During the two week clerkship period, students will be provided with an opportunity to learn about the nature of the work that the ODPP performs.
