  1. Clerkships

    For appellate clerkships, those grades will be hard to get over. Maybe if you publish something or get a good RA job, those might help. You can apply again next year as well.

    If they can't go to places with gay people, how do they get their groceries?

    I have a really hard time with settling issues relating to the balancing of rights through a public referendum. It wasn't right when California did it with gay marriage, and it wasn't right when the LSBC did it with gay marriage.
  4. We're Starting Articles Soon. Give us advice!

    Cat is way better than dog for anybody, but particularly for an articling student. In most cases, you will want and need flexibility in your life while articling. Toronto Humane Society is always looking for more volunteer dog walkers.

    They will also intervene if there's a public safety issue. For example, if a picket line is blocking vehicles from entering and it starts to jam up the public road, the cops will tell picketers to let them in and clear the road. But if that's not an issue, the cops will let them block you all day until an injunction is in place.

    Yup. And that's for unionized workers. For non-union, refusing to come to work because there's a strike is likely cause for termination. Maybe not on day 1, but pretty quickly thereafter once you've been warned.

    If you are unionized, refusing to cross a picket line is an unlawful strike.

    For more: https://www.canlii.org/en/nb/nbqb/doc/2008/2008canlii75292/2008canlii75292.html [22] The right to picket does not include the right to obstruct. See Trailmobile Canada Ltd. v. Merrill, [1983] O.J. No. 1123 (S.C. (H.C.J)); Aramark Canada Ltd. v. Keating, [2002] O.J. No. 3505 (Sup. Ct. J.). [23] While it is permitted for the purpose of trying to persuade those who would cross a picket line not to picket, picketing cannot result in a physical blockade. See T.N.T. Canada Inc. v. General Truck Drivers and Helpers Union, Local 31, [1990] B.C.J. No/ 2976 (S.C.).

    There is no basis. It's unlawful. https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onsc/doc/2011/2011onsc3804/2011onsc3804.html Now, there are practical issues of enforcement. You don't necessarily want the police barging in and arresting people because they're delaying someone from getting to class, but it's not permitted to block them.
  10. Disillusioned?

    Very good advice. Lawyers are ridiculously self-involved and love talking about themselves...

    If you are hoping for one of the 10 or so highly ideological union side labour law jobs in Toronto that Diplock is describing, and have top grades in every other semester, feel free to obey the picket line. Otherwise, focusing on your studies is probably a better course of action.
  12. Obviously! That's what you talk about during interviews...
  13. A clinic where you get real litigation experience is worth several times a moot.
  14. I didn't even think of trying out for a moot.
  15. Almost no one does a competitive moot. If you're at Osgoode, there are like 10-20 people who do the big moots, and 80-100 who get Bay St jobs. It's ridiculous to get stressed over moots.
