Articling ProgramArticled clerks are a valuable part of our team. They benefit from an extensive learning experience and often have the opportunity to become associates with our firm after successfully completing their articling term. At Waterbury Newton, we combine the benefits of a formal rotation process with an informal learning experience. This enables articled clerks to obtain essential training in our major practice areas as well as get involved in our most interesting cases from beginning to end. While Waterbury Newton does not participate in on-campus interviews (OCIs), we do have an extensive recruiting process. We typically hire an articled clerk each year in the fall for the subsequent articling year. For more information on our articling program, contact Shelly Egan, Human Resources Coordinator.
StudentsWaterbury Newton hosts several students each year from high schools, colleges and universities who are completing job placements, working part-time or on a project basis. Students gain valuable experience during their term and often have growth opportunities at our firm. If you are interested in part-time employment or completing a job placement, please contact Shelly Egan, our Human Resources Coordinator.
Curt Palmer Runs the Legs for Literacy Half MarathonMoncton, New Brunswick (October 23, 2013) Curtis Palmer, accompanied by his sons Colin and Benjamin, travelled to Moncton on October 23, 2013, to compete in the Legs for Literacy half marathon. This running event, which is the biggest in New Brunswick, supports literacy efforts in that province. The temperature that day was +1 Celsius, and it took Curt and the boys — who vowed to start together and finish the event together — approximately two hours and twenty minutes to complete the race. Curtis is a three-time provincial men’s curling champion and has represented Nova Scotia on three separate occasions at the Briar. As a senior curler, Curtis has won three provincial championships, and has attended senior nationals on three occasions. Colin is finishing his Masters in International Studies at St. Mary’s University. Benjamin is a first year Masters of Public Administration student at Dalhousie University. Both boys enjoy the opportunity to run and curl with their father.
