  1. Law school in Australia?

    Still here. 2nd year family law in suburban Vancouver. What can I do for you?
  2. It is or it isn't. Your content needs more content, Content.
  3. Finally pulling the cord.. law school ..

    The University of Leicester will take you with a high school diploma. Go there for 3 years, visit the kids at Christmas, come back and write 15 NCA exams or however many they ask for, and apply for articles. No LSAT. Fame and riches (not) guaranteed right after the crushing debt and 4 - 7 years of feeling suicidal. http://flsc.ca/national-committee-on-accreditation-nca/nca-resources/policies-and-guidelines/ https://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/law

  5. Law school bullying - thoughts?

    Do tell.
  6. Law school bullying - thoughts?

    Bullying exists. I felt left out quite a bit in law school because I was more than a decade older than everyone else. Part of this exclusion was imagined on my part, I'm sure. How much I'll never know. But without a doubt, some of the worst bullies were indeed the professors. Yes, the Canadian ones. But I have nothing but respect for the ones who weren't. Sadly, I'm inclined to believe these "survivors". However, if we accept the definition of bullying as set out in this article, I think that a lot of what occurs on this message board might be called bullying, too. Thus, I'm not so sure this is the best place to have an objective conversation about the issue. Sadly, I think the relative anonymity of the internet -- and probably just something about the type of people drawn to law and law schools -- makes it hard to debate without the inevitable name-calling and rank-pulling that typify so much of the "discourse" here. C'est la vie.
  7. Changing fields of law after articling

    Yes. Civil litigation articles to family litigation only. It's got a good beat and I can wig out to it.
  8. Well, that's an inflammatory statement.
  9. There is only one way to tell the truth. Filtering it through the advice of random strangers on the internet suggests a willingness to economise with it.
  10. Good. So why did you ask: "...it seems that I have to disclose all of this, truthfully answer "yes" to the latter question, and attempt to explain this. I would appreciate any advice on how I should approach this..."
  11. First time going to court- Need help

    They didn't tell you where the courthouse was? I guess you're screwed. Enrol in a PhD in Archaeology. Waiting time is forever and a day. But if you do manage to find it, don't talk to the bench. It's not going to say anything. The judge is Your Honour in Provincial Court and Your Lordship/Your Ladyship or My Lord/My Lady in Supreme Court. Masters of the Supreme Court are Your Honour. The clerk is Mister/Madame Clerk or possibly Mister/Madame Registrar. (All terms BC only. Mileage may vary.) The other lawyer is My (Learned) Friend or Opposing Counsel and the ex-wife/husband/partner is The Opposing Party.
  12. Dear vs Hi - OCI process

    Don't get personal.
