  1. I hate getting thank yous for interviews. But I may be anti-social.
  2. BC government positions will pay off the BC portion of your student loan (approx 1/3 typically) over 3 years, which can help. Analysts in my area generally make between 80-90k. It is a relatively high pressure / high demand job though and you would likely be paid more in the private sector for the type of work you are doing.
  3. This is a problem I run into frequently - people show up and say they have legal opinion that says their wacky proposal is okay. Then you ask to see the question that was posed to LSB and ask to the see the written opinion provided. Frequently the question provided to the solicitor is poorly framed, omits important facts etc.... And then the opinion provided is being misunderstood by the person with the opinion and they are using it to support something they never asked about.
  4. I have a law degree, I work in government, I don't do legal work, I do policy work. I like my job. I sometime look enviously at the salaries earned by LSB solicitors but then I take note of their jaundiced complexions and shaky hands. And fire off a request for a legal opinion at 5 pm on my way out the door - if it could be ready by 10 am tomorrow that would be great, we are in a real hurry.
  5. Mostly victoria because most of your client ministries are headquartered in victoria. Crown counsel is going to be a different story.
  6. If you end up working for the BC government at the end of law school they will also pay off the BC portion of your student loan over three years. Not everyone does end up doing that, but its a nice perk if you end up a government lawyer.

  9. 1) I get to indulge in my weird hobbies. 2) I get to cook fancy foods. 3) I can spoil my kids. And as has become tradition in this thread, the 4th item. 4) I don't wake up worrying where the next mortgage payment is coming from, or worry too much about unexpected expenses. I've got stress in my life but not the kind of stress that economic uncertainty brings and that I had when I was a kid (experienced through a kid's lens, but still there).
  10. Basically means you are paying inflated milk quota prices for cheap cellulose.

  12. BC's forestry industry would like to thank you for your patronage.
