  1. Sounds better than studying
  2. Law is a 3 year undergrad degree in the UK straight from A levels (high school). After that you do a year of bar exams, etc. Then you have 2 years of training contracts in an apprenticeship kind of setting. School is pretty focused over there.
  3. Those options sound fun, but pretty expensive. You can do a 5 week french immersion course in Canada that is fully funded by the government.
  4. To be fair, it probably pays about the same as the average university summer job. Are your parents hardcore set on you doing all of your schooling consecutively?
  5. Hop on a plane and go find a job picking grapes in Australia. Or go work in a downtown London bookstore. Lots of people take more than 4 years to do an undergrad degree.
  6. [email protected] Almost done all of my finals so I should be on MSN sometimes. Haven't started looking for a place yet, but will also be looking into finding a roommate or two to share a house/apartment. Tim
  7. Congratulations on getting accepted at U of M, Blady. There was a thread on lawbuzz about the civil law schools, but being lawbuzz, a lot of the posts were less than informative. As for doing your common law year, I know that U of M and Osgoode have an agreement, but you probably know that too, eh?
  8. Queen's does sound like it is going to be much sweeter. Nice writeup.
  9. Most people that have previous law degrees from other countries and come to the states to practice get a LLM.
  10. I don't know anyone who will be in next year's first year class, but I sat in on a first year property class the day before my interview and there were about 5 or so women who looked older than I was, and two people who had brought their school-age children with them, as it was March break. I have a work acquaintance whose wife is currently in 2nd or 3rd year, and she, I would say, 10 years older than you. I could see about getting you in touch with her if you would like. Also, there is a mature students' association at Osgoode who might be helpful...and I bet if you just checked out a class, as I did, you could chat to those folks who you think about your age. I'm in Quebec City right now, but will be back in Toronto in May, so if you wanted to meet downtown for a coffee or something, drop me an email at girlpublisher at hotmail.
