  1. Using admin powers to post in locked thread to ridicule you for this overall joke attempt at a thread and also to note that nudity is not permitted on these forums.
  2. Shouldn't be any pop ups. I'll look into it. Sorry! Edit: Sneaky google. Let me know if you have this happen again, it should be disabled.
  3. Reminder, and a check of the forums will confirm, the vast vast vast majority of people do not have the experience with the UK process that this poster did.
  4. The earliest incarnations of this site are from 2003. Lawstudents.ca as it is known and loved by all is officially 15 years old as of last April. 2 months older than Reddit, which I believe was registered June 2005. We old.
  5. Definitely try to use them if you can even to get contact info for alums who might be open to meeting with you and helping you get your name out there to see where you might be a fit. There’s a few different ways to use the career office - try to remember that a ton of the people they deal with are looking for that big law path, so sometimes you need to push a bit to get them to work with you differently.
  6. For what it's worth, I've noticed this trend across numerous online communities over the last few months (and not just here) where people are getting snarkier and less patient. I find it difficult to really find fault with anyone. These are unprecedented times and people are stretched thin with stress and anxiety. Toss in trying to continue to figure out your future and career in the midst of it - I have immense empathy for everyone and trust we're all just doing our best. A reminder to be kind is always welcome - even when it feels like people are ignoring reality, try to remember that we are only getting a tiny slice of their situation right now. Even if it feels like the 400th time responding to the same type of question posed the same way with an eerie sense of deva vu naivety, it's probably not doing anyone any good to be mean about it. There's enough bad news for most people already. Sometimes it does take some tough love, but it doesn't always have to be the first approach. Anyway, all that to say, appreciate the post. It's timely!

  8. If you want to advertise tutoring services you provide, generally the rule is that self promotion of that nature is not allowed. If you are asking for tutors to contact you, that’s fine.

  10. Sorry, but this is objectively false. If you are intending to draft contracts that others will use, you are trying to practice law without being a lawyer. This is a bad idea. Locking the thread as this is essentially looking for legal advice in a roundabout way.
  11. To follow up on this, the most important advice we can provide is that if you are asking something that is so sensitive it requires absolute anonymity, with very few examples, it's probably worth rethinking what you are asking in a small and career orientated community like this. Inevitably, even when we let people set up a second account to ask something they don't want tied to their main account, 6 months later they are back to us asking for the entire account to be deleted because a nephew's cousin's sister's boyfriend works for the former person they were talking about or asking about etc etc and they are worried about being doxxed. You are responsible for what you post to the internet and shouldn't assume you can later remove it. We do not ask for, and highly advise against, posting anything personally identifying. As erinl2 noted, going forward we are going to be much less accommodating of people ignoring this forum policy and will simply merge any second account with the original. Thanks.

  13. Holy shit. My inbox is literally just “hey can you delete this? DELETE THIS. OMG MY LIFE IS OVER UNLESS YOU DELETE THIS”. Come on now. It’s 2019, learn how to use the internet people. Don’t ask about your chances by detailing every friendship and job and unique personal trait you have had since kindergarten.
