Hicks Morley’s Simon Mortimer and Hossein Moghtaderi were featured in PrecedentJD Magazine in an article titled “Want to Land a Great Job? Take the Law Practice Program.” Hicks Morley has supported the Law Practice Program since its inception, and has hosted LPP candidates during their four-month placement. In the article, Simon said that he “was impressed by what Ryerson put together … in particular, the fact the program would focus on practical skills.”
Hossein Moghtaderi completed his LPP placement at Hicks Morley in 2016 and was hired back as an associate. After law school, Hossein pursued a career in politics and missed the opportunity to follow the traditional Bay Street hiring process. After a year, he decided to get called to the Bar and enter private practice. In the article, he discussed how he how initially he was going to “pound the pavement” to find an articling job, until he looked into the LPP. “I saw how many firms take part in the program.” Hossein said.
