Hi! When do we get the 1L schedule and booklist?


The schedule is already up on the site under the current students tab. As for when we are assigned our sections and receive our booklists, I hope it’s soon!

Last year, the booklists weren't completely finalized until the first day of class--one professor didn't actually bring his required texts into the bookstore, and we had to purchase them from a third-party seller during class. There's also an LSA used textbook sale that usually runs the first week (or so) of classes.

It's kind of bushleague from a "I'd like to know how much money I need" perspective, but it's generally good practice to hear what books are required versus those that merely supplemental.

Even if the booklist appears firm, I would highly suggest waiting. It didn't hinder me at all--outside of the constitutional textbook selling out of the bookstore and taking almost a month and a half to come in.

Also, as a quick note on supplemental texts: I purchased most of them. A couple were helpful, a couple didn't even get cracked. They were pretty much all available on reserve at the library. As such, I wouldn't buy them, if I was doing it all over again.

    • 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
