  1. 2018 2L Recruitment

    I've only heard from MAG Crown Law Crim, because they did OCIs, but I really think the other MAG branches and the Crown offices will wait until call day to say anything.
  2. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Thought I'd step in for people interviewing with government: Received ITCs from DOJ and MAG Crown Law Criminal on the evening of my OCI with each
  3. 2L Summer Job "Offer Date" Question

    Hi all, On the 2L summer job "offer date," (November 8th this year), are offers usually made over the phone, email, or on the portal? Also, does it usually happen at the end of the day?
  4. Trial Advocacy in second or third year?

    Great advice, thank you!
  5. Trial Advocacy in second or third year?

    Thanks for your input. I was thinking 3L if only because then I would have taken procedure and evidence courses in their entirety before enrolling in trial ad, which might help me in the course (though I don't know if this has any truth to it). But yes, if I do it in the fall of 2L, then I could talk about it during OCIs, etc. I was just worried that I wouldn't have enough coursework/experience behind me to do well in the course. Thoughts?
  6. Can anyone speak to benefits/drawbacks of taking Trial Ad in second vs. third year of the JD? To give some context, I'm an incoming 2L interested in litigation, specifically in criminal law.
  7. So You Want To Be A Crown (criminal)

    For those that summered with the Crown's office in 2L, what were your 1L grades and work experience like?
  8. 1L grades are out!

    Title says it all. Hope we can all maintain perspective during this (sometimes) tumultuous time. We are Osgoode students, after all!
  9. Clerking at ICC/ICJ

    Anyone here have experience or know anything about clerking for the ICC, ICJ, or a Special Tribunal? I've heard that it's possible, just finding it difficult to locate any information.
  10. Has anyone had experience with applying for clerking in fall of 2L, only to be out of the country in winter term when interviews occur? I thought I was in the clear by being on campus in the fall for OCIs, and scheduling my exchange for winter, before I realized that applications for clerkships happen in 2L and not 3L and thus that interviews would be in the winter. Please help!
  11. Chances: cGPA 3.67, LSAT 157

    I received my acceptance in early January of last year. If you haven't received yours yet, I wouldn't worry, acceptances are far from over yet.
  12. Chances: cGPA 3.67, LSAT 157

    OP, I'm at Oz in my first year right now, and I had (eerily) similar ECs, LSAT, and presumably grades. Hopefully you put a lot of effort into your personal statement and you have a good chance.
  13. CLASP Interview Questions

    Hi all, Got my interview with CLASP for Crim Division Leader. Anyone with experience care to share the general style of the interview and/or types of questions that my friends and I can expect? Much love.
  14. Ask a 1L - 2017 Edition

    I am also available to answer any queries! I am a current 1L at Osgoode like OP.
  15. CLASP in Summer

    Thanks! So you are paid during the summer months but during the year, are you still paid or do you only receive school credit? I imagine it's the latter.
