  1. Some Articling Advice needed

    Hey all, So I am rapidly approaching the end of my last term at law school, and both myself and couple of friends of mine are thus far position-less. I've tried going to networking events (there is a family law mixer coming up that I'm weirdly excited about, never saw that coming) and making cold calls and.. well, nothing's happening. So, advice. I'm from the Maritimes, going to Dal, and want to stay here. My fiance lives here, and is midway through her PhD. I pretty desperately want to be a lawyer, but I'm kinda losing steam here. Any advice, anecdotes, whatever, would be appreciated. I've gone digging through the forum but I've found nothing is more useful than advice directed at you personally.
  2. Windsor vs. Osgoode: "Big Five" Firm Prospects

    I thought we named them after the Pleiades!
  3. That sounds brilliant. My civil procedure professor tried his damnedest to get us to engage with the material. He even had us bill time. I think this would be better.
  4. Handling students

    VERY late seeing this, but I want you as a boss.

    Ah, such is life, I suppose.
  6. How important is a school reputation?

    I'm just happy people remembered Moncton exists.

    I would absolutely love an update re: Ottawa DOJ. Any word?
  8. Tax vs Administrative Law

    Can confirm. Am taking it now. I like Wildeman. She's a nice lady, and absolutely brilliant. It doesn't translate into clear teaching. Edit: As to the topic of this thread, I would probably say admin, and I'm one of tax's biggest proponents. I love tax. Tax is the shit. Admin is honestly probably harder to learn than anything you'll cover in an intro tax course.
  9. Class and Gender on Bay Street?

    Ahh that would do it. None of the schools I've attended have (To my knowledge) a peer mentorship program explicitly for first generation students.
  10. Class and Gender on Bay Street?

    Who would write 'peer-tutor for first generation university students'? And how does that signal lower class?

    Beep boop?
  13. Can a lawyer be part of a Union

    While the rest of the post was interesting and useful, I'm just happy to see my favourite musical with Christian Bale in it referenced!
  14. I worked on a boat! It was really fun, I really loved it until I couldn't stop vomitting. In short, don't work on a boat.
