Did you apply last cycle and not get anything? Did you ask employers why or reflect on why? That might help determine whether it's worth the risk or not.
I doubt anyone will sneeze at a law degree from Oxford and an LLM from a top 14 US. I'd be curious (if i were an employer) why you're suddenly interested in canadian law jobs, and how you plan on learning the fundamentals you didn't learn abroad. Might be good to have an answer ready for that.
Yeah, but there's a difference between a tax credit and a tax deduction. The first is at the lowest rate, the latter is at a marginal rate. That can be a significant difference. That was the only point.
While in school yes obviously you collect tuition credits based on tuition cost and time (in months) as full-time student.
After done school, when you repay your student loans, at the end of year you are notified how much of those payments went towards interest. That amount, the money paid towards interest, qualifies as a tax credit deductible/credit. This is only for government loans. Obviously a LOC from a bank would not qualify.
