Since 2009, PrecedentJD has tracked the number of articling students Toronto law firms have hired back as first-year associates — and called it the Hireback Watch.
In the interactive chart below, you can toggle between the past twelve years and sort the hireback data in each column. If you click on the name of a firm, you’ll see its numbers from over the years.
See the chart below to find out how we calculate the data and how we have handled law-firm mergers over the years.
Note: The Toronto-wide Hireback Watch and Bay Street Ranking usually include Goodmans LLP. This year, however, Goodmans did not respond to PrecedentJD’s repeated requests for their 2020 hireback data. The firm’s entries have been left blank as a result.
