Thank you! :) Hopefully it ends with a good result. Haven't gotten every interview I've wanted, but definitely still pleased. 

Good luck to you all! In my opinion, this is the most nerve wracking period other than in-firm week

Asking for a friend, has anyone heard anything from any criminal defence firms or crown offices?

On call day, are we obligated to accept/decline the interview on the spot or are we allowed to consider and call back? (obviously without taking too much time).

I ask because by looking at the last year's thread, half the places I applied to do not send ITCs. I'll have no way of knowing  which of them will be extending me interviews until they call on Friday.

My plan was to take the interview and if I start getting too full (fat chance for me though) I'd just call back and say thanks but no thanks. There's no obligation to stick with the interview if other opportunities come up, as far as I'm aware. I stand to be corrected though. 

 

I mean, you don't want to go and they certainly don't want to waste their time interviewing someone who doesn't want to be there.

Does anyone know approximately how many candidates each firm interviews? And if there is a waitlist how will you know what place you are on it or if you are even on a waitlist.

You accept/schedule or reject on the spot. Scheduling is hectic on both sides, and it's not like an offer where you can consider. Most people deal with some unpredictability on call day - you do the best you can, double/overbook if you absolutely have to, then do damage control / shuffling later as possible.

It's often ~10 people per spot.

Official waitlists aren't generally a thing, as far as I've ever seen. If there is a waitlist, I doubt you'd be able to find out exactly where you are on it. If you don't get an interview from a place you're really into, it can be a good idea to follow up with them (a couple hours after the calling frenzy has ended), express your interest, and tell them that you'd really like to come in if a space opens up later. People cancel, it happens from time to time.

I'm interested in hearing anything about any Crown offices dealing with criminal law and any criminal defence firms.

    • I never really had any professors I hated - I had profs I wasn't fond of their teaching style, but since every student varies on that it's REALLY hard to find out if a certain prof is 'good' or not. For instance, I disliked Fadel as a prof, but part of that was that I had him for Biz Org which is like the opposite of my area of interest. So coupling a lack of interest in the class with his teaching style made it seem worse than his teaching style probably was. Ultimately I find a great prof can help make even dry material seem fun, and a bad prof can make good material much less interesting, but you probably won't find too many profs you just can't learn from. And worse case scenario, you can do a lot of the learning on your own too!
    • I have an LLM (in the field of law I planned to/do practice in) and I got it right after my JD and before articling/getting Called. I doubt it has been the sole reason I got my articling position or my job after I got Called, but I was told by my principal that he found the LLM very impressive. I didn't do it to be more employable but rather because I wanted to and I enjoyed the area of law, but I think that it certainly can't have hurt my employability.   (Not even remotely in the IP field so can't speak to anything specific to that field).
    • Did you have prior litigation experience? 
    • I made a transition myself after articling, went from solicitor work into a litigation practice. Did it through sheer networking. Its difficult but very possible.
    • Hello everyone, just had a quick question here. Do most Canadian law schools accept the February LSAT for admission for that year? Which ones don't? Also, are you less likely to get in somewhere with your Feb lsat? Do spots usually fill up by then?   Thanks
