  1. https://bcpublicservice.ats.hrsmart.com/cgi-bin/a/highlightjob.cgi?jobid=41267 DESCRIPTION OF POSITION Reporting to the Chief Justice and the Associate Chief Justice with respect to matters of law and legal work and to the Executive Director & Senior Counsel (Executive Director) in respect of matters of employment, the Legal Counsel acts as both legal advisor to and representative of the Chief Justice and Associate Chief Justice, and as in-house counsel for the Court’s judges, masters, registrars and judicial administration staff. Legal Counsel provides legal opinions and background information necessary for policy planning and administration of the Court, its internal committees and its programs. The Legal Counsel is responsible for overseeing the Law Clerk Program in conjunction with the Court of Appeal Legal Counsel --- Looks like the legal counsel 1 position is part time rather than full time.
  2. I used e-convey which I think was bought by dye and durham recently. Edit It was an online website thingy and it was pretty easy to learn and use. The online bit of it, now that I think about it, may cause some issues with client confidentiality if all your work is floating on someones servers somewhere.
  3. An MPA/MPP would be more useful for policy work. Can also be done part time / distance too.
  4. Honestly though, I would not recommend getting a research based LLM unless you wanted to get a doctorate. And if you do want to get a doctorate I would go somewhere that either lets you jump straight into an SJD or allows you to convert your LLM into an SJD. It's a dead degree, everyone hiring nowadays wants to see a doctorate.
  5. I did a JD -> LLM -> Clerkship -> policy. Nearly all of the people in my LLM cohort had a couple of years of practice under their belt, many had 10 + and were using education leave from government jobs to get an LLM. A couple of people I clerked with were doing course based LLMs in tax while clerking / just prior to clerking. They went on to private practice just fine.
  6. I don't remember this being an issue back in the day, it may have been distributed as a word document. Edit: My kid was 6 months old at the time and I was also working on my masters thesis. It can't have been an issue or I would remember freaking out about it. Sounds like LSUC has screwed the new articling students again. Do they still make you pay full price for the unprinted version of the course materials?

  8. My experience with BC government hiring is that start dates can be negotiated within reason. I would take the May start date with a grain of salt as well. The application period does not close until May 4th. Then you've got sorting, interviews, tests, reference checks, criminal record checks, internal paperwork, yadda, yadda, yadda. Could take 2 or 3 weeks to finish the hiring process and get a paper offer out.

  10. Interesting. I see this: Members 5273 12530 posts LocationNangijala
  11. One issue. The location information seems to be outputting without a space between the word location and the location. For ex, under my profile picture: "LocationNangijala" rather than "Location Nangijala"
