  1. You should ask yourself why you perseverate on a single topic for months and are apparently unable to absorb the pages and pages of responses you've already received.
  2. I had a file this year where the arbitrators were shocked to learn that "interior bedrooms" are essentially standard in new builds
  3. Ok, but the assessor has the mandate and luxury of reciting facts without advocacy and getting to opine on what they really think is in the best interests of the child, vs. what their client thinks.
  4. If you want to make a "difference" and want to be on the "right" side of a conflict where kids are involved, one career you might consider is being an assessor. Their recommendations are determinative in a serious majority of cases - I remember a stat like 85%+
  5. Any legal job where you are helping "little people" will have periods of very high, sustained stress that you won't be able to mitigate. Especially if you're working with children and families. You must reflect on whether your health can take that burden for years.
  6. Those ADR people are tenured litigators, it's not a thing for new calls.
  7. What informs your perspective?
  8. Most of them are there to hide from reality, collect extortionate tuition fees and engage in absurdly useless vanity projects.
  9. How is it left leaning to dedicate 100% of yourself to making money by serving the richest possible clients? It's really antiracist and decolonial to do capital markets work for Canadian resource juniors who are raping the third world in the original sense of that word
  10. Well, we have to end apartheid for one. And slow down the nuclear arms race, stop terrorism and world hunger. We have to provide food and shelter for the homeless, and oppose racial discrimination and promote civil rights, while also promoting equal rights for women. We have to encourage a return to traditional moral values. Most importantly, we have to promote general social concern and less materialism in young people.
  11. "Wow! That hunchbacked lawyer stayed up really late reviewing documents! And he never takes a day off except for Sabbath! I want to be like him when I grow up!"
  12. There's a barbell effect around school affordability. If you're very low or very high income, then the costs are heavily mitigated by other people's money. You're pushing a bootstraps narrative when you're actually on one side of the barbell - heavily subsidized tuition and an interest free line of credit that likely paid for the bulk of your law school years and on which you can indefinitely defer repayment. That's a much different picture than the modal U of T student who is paying close to full freight and will feel the full brunt of those costs on graduation.
  13. There's a bursary built into OSAP, did you receive that during undergrad? Also if you went to law school at U of T and received that much in bursaries then most or all of your loan would be interest-free.
  14. You're alienated from your parents but didn't receive bursaries or financing from the law school?
  15. We're talking about the fees extracted by the guild. There's no "public choice" framework where more or less information changes how entrants behave, except in an absurd case where licensing fees are $500,000 But the thought experiment (what if there were multiple guilds, and you chose who licensed you) is interesting. You can quickly and easily see how a much leaner body charging NY-like fees would work
