The growth and development of a law firm and its members relies on the strength and cohesiveness of its team. At Stein Monast, everyone performs duties essential to the achievement of a common goal, namely to preserve the sustainability of a reputable firm with over 100 associates, members and staff.

The key to its success? The harmony of a team that works in a healthy, balanced environment conducive to achievement and excellence. In order to preserve this harmony, a potential applicant must share the team’s common qualities and values, particularly diligence, cooperation, efficiency, open-mindedness, a sense of responsibility and enthusiasm.

Working at Stein Monast means being part of a tradition of excellence.

  • Lawyers

    Upon arrival, the salaried professional participates in a specific welcome and training program allowing for an optimal, quick integration into our team. The professional will become familiar with current administrative and IT procedures. An employee committee has also been set up to foster the integration of professionals with their colleagues through professional, social and sports activities.

    A mentor program has also been set up with designated associates to foster professional development and provide direction on a career path.

    Salaried professionals receive remuneration competitive with that of other major law firms in Quebec as well as several employee benefits such as group insurance, parking, cellphone and so on. They also benefit from a dynamic, social working environment in the heart of the very busy cultural and historical Old Port of Quebec City area.

  • Law internship

    Each year Stein Monast provides a limited number of interns with a personalized experience, the opportunity to perform various rewarding tasks, and a better opportunity to be hired as a lawyer following the internship depending on the firm’s needs and the interns’ interests.

    During the internship, interns will have the opportunity to become familiar with all of the firm’s areas of law. Applicants will work directly with professionals in order to involve them in cases and allow them to benefit from personalized coaching by experienced lawyers.

    Stein Monast offers interns the opportunity to work full-time as students during the summer prior to completing their studies. Students may also work part-time during the school year if they so wish. However, the firm encourages students to give priority to their studies and become legal interns as initially planned.

    Student and intern duties may include research, drafting proceedings and contracts and preparing closing documents. Students and interns are also invited to participate in various information activities such as examinations for discovery, client meetings, debriefing sessions and trials as occasions arise. Only Court representations, including the submission of countermotions, are reserved for interns.

    Students and interns have no billable hour objectives, since the emphasis is on task variety and skill development. Interns become known in and indispensable to the firm for the quality of their work, professionalism and enthusiasm.

    Student employment and internships are paid and compare favourably with other major law firms in Quebec.

    Welcome and training

    Stein Monast has designed a specific welcome and training program for students and interns for early, optimal integration into our team.

    Mentoring 

    The training of students, interns and young lawyers aims for their optimal integration into the firm’s professional life through a mentor program that is considered of prime importance to all of the lawyers. The role of mentor taken on by designated associates is to support and coach students, interns and lawyers. The time devoted to the program by serious, diligent mentors is valued and recognized as necessary for the sustainability of the firm.

    Mentors regularly monitor student, intern and lawyer engagement by reviewing their work, share any positive comments as well as constructive criticism, and ensure review by the lawyer who entrusted the mandate, all in order to guide them toward the achievement of their professional objectives. Mentors ensure that students and interns receive work from several lawyers and groups of practice to provide them with access to complete training. Finally, mentors prepare a full, written student, intern or lawyer assessment report to be submitted to the associate responsible for the firm’s professional development committee.
