  1. Clerkship 2018

    Has anyone gotten a confirmation of receipt of the writing sample from the SCC yet?
  2. Calgary 1L recruit interviews

    a few years ago, fasken pulled out of the recruit last minute and didn't tell anyone. might be happening again if no one has heard this late?
  3. Clerkship 2018

    Crossing my fingers for you! Anyone have any tips for prepping for the committee?
  4. Clerkship 2018

    Also, who’s using the committee and who’s doing their own interviews?
  5. Clerkship 2018

    Does it seem like people or bots/a mail merge? Aka is it over?
  6. Clerkship 2018

    From a specific justice, or the panel? (If you can say!)
  7. Clerkship 2018

    shoot, yes you're right. I missed interviews are a week earlier this year!
  8. Clerkship 2018

    I think last year the first mention of interview offers was closer to family day - like feb 15-17 onwards. but i second legalqueen - please post if/when you get one!
  9. When does an associate become partner?

    I think part of the attrition becomes voluntary as a pride thing too. If you're at the 6 year mark, you put yourself up for consideration every year, and then by 10 you're not a partner for whatever reason, having just the associate title and being a 10 year call might get awkward enough that someone leaves to somewhere that will make them partner.
  10. Clerkship 2016

    Reviving this thread for some fresh clerkship advice - people who applied to the SCC, did you deviate at all from the traditional cover letter? It just feels like the SCC is such a big deal that a normal cover letter isn't enough. I'm not talking about doing a video a la Elle Woods but did anyone switch it up from a "here's things about me" letter to like a more narrative, why is the law important type of thing?
  11. Super late but once a guy held an offer for literally 23 hours and 59 minutes and then called to accept, so the other candidate who hadn't gotten anything else, was told what was going on and was waiting for the offer to expire, then couldn't be made an offer. People still talk about it, years later. Such a dick move.
  12. Ask a 1L!

    You'll need one for Careers day in second semester. And the 1L recruit if you do that. And the hicks morley moot if you do that. all are in second semester, but I'd recommend getting a suit now when you have plenty of time to shop. and just in case you need it in first semester (not sure why but it's possible)
  13. What did you do in your pre-articling break?

    Not to mention there are other jurisdictions other than Ontario!!
  14. If you were fortunate enough to have a break between graduation and starting your articles, and a medium amount of cash to spend, what did you do and where did you go? Crowdsourcing the best possible pre-articling plan!
  15. If you're at an event that is specifically for recruitment, then people will be watching out for students, and will likely be asked to write up notes about who they saw and who the liked/didn't like. We're asked to keep track of who we like and whether we think they might fit. All data is important going into recruits.
