  1. I won't comment on the cultural issues surrounding leave at firms, not having been at one in five years or so, but as of March, most of Canada will be giving families a bonus (5 weeks of EI-funded leave, or about $2750) if both parents take at least 5 weeks of leave.
  2. Yeah. I've been to a lot of places over the years, but that is one of my favourite things I've seen.
  3. The Stanley Park one was good, but the Central Park one had some incredibly large old trees. Coming from Toronto, I had never seen anything like it. Of course, that was before I saw Vancouver Island...
  4. Pardon me for thinking that the Central Park Pitch and Putt would be a lot more fun to visit than the SFU campus!
  5. I actually lived in Burnaby for a few months once while on a temporary work assignment, and still didn't know this.
  6. I know SFU is in BC, and I think it's in Vancouver or one of its suburbs, but that's all I know about it, and I'd be surprised if many people here knew any more than that. I couldn't begin to tell you whether it has any particular reputation, or programs that it's known for.

    1L Notes, CANs, and exams

    If you have pretty much verbatim notes from all of the lectures, just use them to make a real outline of the course material. Obviously it's more efficient to do that during the term rather than taking verbatim notes, but you're not in that bad of a position. And you have some time to do it.
  8. I'd be surprised if most people in Ontario know what country or province SFU is in, never mind whether it's a good or bad school. There may be some unique cases where someone has a soft spot for people who went to their alma mater (and that would probably be expressed by discovering a better "fit" during the interview than anything stronger than that) but that's probably as far as it goes in Canada.

    Vancouver Law Job or Calgary Law Job?

    I don't think Vancouver has a bigger legal market and more business. Calgary is Canada's second biggest legal market these days.

    Ryerson Law by 2020 - Letter of Intent

    I'm honestly not up to speed enough to say whether any specific campus or school that was cancelled is a good or bad idea. But the way our economy is going, it seems shortsighted to be reducing the amount of post-secondary education available, or making it harder for people to access it.

    Ryerson Law by 2020 - Letter of Intent

    He does appreciate post-secondary institutions, but mostly as a customer base.

    Going to the gym during law school

    It's "regimen". Seriously, can't anyone get it right around here. Study up!

    Going to the gym during law school

    How do you get to law school without knowing whether you can go to the gym while in school?

    Work hours in big law

    I never once got a bonus and never thought it was worthwhile to try.

    Work hours in big law

    All jokes about document sorting and folders aside, I'm not sure I have/had the some exit options as an M&A associate. I'm still practicing law, but my non-law career paths now tend towards the HR side, whereas someone with expertise in M&A probably has options on the GC and corporate development paths, which tend to be more lucrative.
