  1. Articling Position in Calgary

    Yeah, I have been cold calling and emailing without much success. I guess I will stay persistent and keep an open mind.
  2. Articling Position in Calgary

    Hello folks, What advice would you give to a 3L looking for an articling position in Calgary? I am currently in law school in Ontario and my law school's career services office has not been super helpful with the articling positions posted by small and mid sized firm in Calgary. I have tried networking in Calgary this summer. I am grateful that I was able to secure a 2L summer position from networking but unfortunately I was not able to secure an articling position. Any suggestions or comments are welcome.
  3. U of T GPLLM (advice required)

    University of Manitoba has mature category. Also, schools like Windsor and Calgary are more holistic. So, your military experience would give you a competitive edge for schools which are more holistic. Going to a different province for law school is still a way better option than going to the UK if you want to practice in Ontario.
  4. Toronto 2017 2L Recruitment

    Did anyone hear back from Dimock Stratton?
  5. Real Estate Law Summary

    Does anyone have outline/summary for real estate law with Micahel Bird?
  6. Toronto 2017 2L Recruitment

    Anyone heard back from Bereskin & Parr for 2L OCIs?
  7. I am going to be joining the class of 2018 as a transfer student. I was wondering if the class of 2018 has a Facebook group.
  8. I am passionate about corporate law and businesses in general. I am interested in being a solicitor. But my 1l grades are very mediocre and it is highly unlikely that I will get an articling position with a big law firm. Is it possible to practice corporate law in a small and/or medium firm? My program does not have room for too many electives. My dilemma right now is whether to focus the limited number of electives I have on corporate law or areas of law that are dominated by mid and small sized firms. There is part of me that is telling me to follow my passion, but the other part of me wants to be more practical. Any advice would be really appreciated.
  9. I am currently a 1L. I was accepted from the regular category in a different law school. Hope you have an amazing law school experience.
  10. Dual JD Grading curve

    Does anyone know what is the grading curve for the dual JD program? Is the grading curve different in the two schools?
  11. Provisional to Firm

    Patience my friend. Just give them few days to update the system.
  12. Dual JD and Car

    To all the dual JD students and graduates, How did you commute between the two campuses? Do you recommend buying a car, carpooling with other people or using the public transit? I will most likely be living on res. I am from the west coast.
  13. Just finished 1L (Dual JD) - Ask me anything

    How many electives do dual JD students get to take? I am mostly interested in patent and corporate law related electives. Is it possible to take patent law courses in 1st or 2nd year either from University of Windsor or UDM?
  14. I am planning to live on campus. The res has not informed me yet if I will live in Alumni hall or Clark residence.
  15. Has anyone from the discretionary category been accepted/wait-listed/rejected yet? I am also curious to find out if UNB has rejected anyone yet. If not it is probably a bad sign for people like me whose status says not reviewed.
