    Extreme Frustration With Jr. Crowns

    I'm sorry but then the onus should be on the Crown (in general, not the one junior crown) to better supervise and advise juniors on matters. It's not fair that a prosecution that's bullshit occurs and ruins someone's life and leads to irreversible stress/character damage - just so the junior crown learns the ropes. The Crown should do a better job. It isn't a game.

    Summer Student Salaries?

    Weekly. If this is making your head explode, don't look at big law salaries in the states.

    Summer Student Salaries?

    Varies. Toronto is at 1450 I think, with some places offering 1600. Montreal is around 1000. Not sure about Vantown or Calgary.

    Extreme Frustration With Jr. Crowns

    Yes. But also, you rarely hear society Say "lock that punk up" if he's "just a good kid who fucked up" (A.K.A comes from a good family). But you hear them calling to try a 17 year old as an adult because he's from a bad neighborhood, is black/Hispanic/Muslim, etc.

    Unless the punk is an 18 year old wealthy white male.

    Question for all you prosecutors

    Go north. They need help. And you'll get some absolutely amazing exposure, way sooner than you would otherwise.

    What should I do after I get my rejection?

    I'm sorry to hear that. I'm not sure if you did apply to other schools, but if you didn't - I recommend you re-apply (if you want) and broadly too. Call the admissions office to see what weaknesses (if any) your application had. If you didn't write the lsat - see how you do on a diagnostic and consider writing it to up your chances. All the best.

    2L Summer (2019) Recruit PFOs/ITCs

    Most likely.
  9. If you're not dead set on working in Canada, you could look into some of the big firms and see if they'll take you on as a patent guy or clerk or whatever they call you, and go to an American law school at night. I know of at least one big law American firm who does this for science people with masters (impressive ones.. so check in). Generally I'd recommend just going to Canada if you can and even seeing if you want to do IP. You never know.

    What type of Law is each school known for?

    I'd say McGill is the best school for international law given its education, and its faculty in it (and opportunities available to its students, and not other Canadian law students by virtue of its European connections). Feel free to PM for more info.

    McGill got its lists today. I won't release what other places I got interviews at for anonymity purposes. Seems like the firms are getting around to most schools by now.

    I'm already hating how long and drawn out this process is.

    Are lawyers still using typewriters?

    What are the primary differences between clerks (at firms..) and legal assistants?
