  1. Screwups and Faceplants

    Somewhat minor but last summer I was tasked with preparing an exhibit of photos for evidence. I was pretty rushed but I did up 4 (one for the judge, one for the crown, one for the defence and one for the witness). The testimony went something like this: Defence: "I'll refer you to exhibit one, page 5, who's car is that?" Witness: "I'm on page 5 and there's no car in this picture" Judge: "There's a car on page 5 of my exhibit". Crown: "I don't see a car in my exhibit". And on it went..... I somehow mixed up the order of the pictures when quickly preparing the exhibits. My boss didn't throw me under the bus too bad: "I'm sorry your Honour I left the preparation of the exhibits to my student.....he's somewhat new at this".
  2. Grades matter. Likely more if you're aiming for business law. People on here usually say that a science background can help you with IP Law. About the "competitiveness" of law school, try to block it out and focus on you. But make sure to stand up for yourself and call things for what they are.
  3. 1L Summer Firm Salaries

    Unless you still owe ALOT of people money for having bet BIG on the Atlanta Falcons back in February
  4. Probably dumb question

    No offense but these comments are just rediculous. Don't let these upity tryhards get in the way of you and your friend/family member's obviously close and heartfelt relationship. Get in there and hug it out (or I will)
  5. I'm happy it's over so people stop asking me if I'm a 1L. I'm a 2L people! I just look young.
  6. Probably dumb question

    I'm going to go against the general consensus here and tell you to go for it. The way I see it, if the firm doesnt appreciate you hugging someone you know who works there and you have a prior relationship, is it really a firm you want to work for?
  7. Ask them if they're single. You'll appear casual yet confident.
  8. Common homey do your research https://www.dal.ca/faculty/law/indigenous-blacks-mi-kmaq-initiative/how-to-apply.html
  9. The firm is a Federal Crown Agent meaning they're contracted by the feds to prosecute offences stemming from federal statutes. It's common in rural areas.
  10. Experience skipping the formal Toronto 2L recruit?

    I took a job with a firm that does work in my interest area but I interviewed with a bunch of corporate firms just to see what was up. Maybe it's undiagnosed sociopathy or from experience playing late night Texas Holdem at the casino but I didn't find it too hard to appear interested. The interviewers aren't going interrogate you that hard just to find out that you're "meh" about Insurance Defence.
  11. Articling Rates

    Yeah I might have jumped the gun on that one
  12. Articling Rates

    25$ an hour accross the board
  13. Work/volunteer as a student

    I heard on the news last night that MacDonald's is currently doing a national hiring campaign. Also I hear the Biodome pays well!
  14. Thoughts on 1L Grades for OCI

    There's a rumor going around that JohnsonWest got on to Bay Street thanks to his close resemblance to Henry Fonda
