Application Tips

  • Spell the firm name correctly: Pallett has two Ls and two Ts; Valo has one L.
  • Follow the instructions on what your application package should include, to whom it should be addressed and how it should be submitted. A student who fails to follow these instructions may be seen as careless or not paying attention to detail.
  • Proofread your application: Spell check is not enough, particularly if you have used a template cover letter for all your applications. Be particularly mindful of accidental references to other law firms and areas of the law not practiced at Pallett Valo, expressing an interest in working on Bay Street or anywhere other than Peel Region, etc.
