  1. Old report but interesting: https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2012/03/30/the_verdict_lawyer_well_paid_at_8_million.html
  2. Some profs do. They will discuss their lecture and ask a question that would have been covered by the readings and will from time to time say: John Smith, what's the answer? And then Jane Jones! What do you think?...
  3. Yeah I haven't really heard anything negative about TitlePlus. And yeah I think it's pretty standard to offer coverage for legal services. The main concern is that FCT wants to monopolize real estate transactions and lawyers using their services are in my opinion hurting themselves in the long run.
  4. Hey their firm is fairly sized! And wow to all of those who actually think I'm serious about quoting a tv show :)
  5. I think it was like 4-5 years ago that things changed disallowing lawyers to act for both sides. Legend has it that FCT Lending constantly engages in the practice of delaying the advancement of funds to lawyers to create disruptions. Legend also has it that in doing so they are manufacturing evidence in their lobbying to allow them to do in Canada what you say they do in the United States. Their title insurance arm is heavy in Canada, with something like 60% of the marketshare if I'm not mistaken. I think lawyers who choose FCT when getting title insurance for their clients are doing a disservice to themselves. Stuart Title seems like a better choice to me.
  6. You mean Suits is not one of those reality shows???
  7. Yeah but remember that Harvey would get nervous every time she would suggest that she would do it. She would always ask him "What, you don't think I still got it?" which suggests that she didn't actually litigate.
  8. Well in defence of my 3 yr old comment, top managing lawyers at law firms cannot really practice and do the day-to-day grind. Exampli gratia Jessica Pearson from Suits.
  9. Fulfill 2 and 14 by saying no to another one you don't want to do.
  10. It takes quite a bit to get real estate insured also.
  11. I would call the NCA to double check but I believe that they have now changed the requirement to 2 years of canadian in class law school if you have an LLB or JD from outside Canada. The best route, I think, would be to enrol with the NCA, have the application assessed. The NCA will then give you a a letter outlining a list of courses needed to complete your process so you use that to specifically apply for a 2 year masters. Osgoode requires that NCA letter before letting you register. If I'm not mistaken you need a B average to get in.
  12. I don't mean to be rude but if that's how you feel, drop out asap. Another person who actually wants it will take it if you do it early enough.
  13. Well I'm also being rude and trying to get him to spend money on ppl who know better. It sort of gets to me when ppl call for a "quick question" hoping they can get that missing piece of the puzzle for free.
  14. I said it because it has happened to me. I had a crown tell me that they dont have those so I had to provide them with case law that they had an obligation to secure it if requested before it gets automatically destroyed. Also had a similar scenario with a 311 complaint call.
  15. lol Yeah I'm sure they are well aware of Stinchcombe but if let's say he wants to get something beyond officer notes and depending on the circumstances it would be advisable to also get radio communications or a 911 call or what ever it may be. I like to include a case or two that fall squarely on what I am asking for precisely because I want to save time and avoid having to bring a motion and waste more time when I don't have to.
