  1. I just received the 2 diplomas in the mail from LSO. Does anyone have any information about ordering frames? Usually, we would get these at the Call to the Bar ceremony.
  2. What happened at Goodmans?
  3. Blaneys did not hire back and nothing from Cassels yet
  4. McCague Borlack didn't hire anyone back.
  5. heard Gowlings and dentons hired back. don't know numbers
  6. Have any firms hired back? If so, what are the numbers like?
  7. I (and others) I know received a PASS in red. Chill lol
  8. Blakes has always been around that number. Big jump for Osler.
  9. Supply and demand theory actually suggests law school is overall too cheap across the country. (Exhibit A: articling crisis)
  10. Okay - fair point too. So flip it and have the 0-74 lawyer group go in the fall. How many students are taking chances to wait it out for winter recruit? (Not saying I think this would work... just trying to spur some ideas)
  11. Fair point. Could this be resolved by having a fall recruit for firms with 75+ lawyers and a winter recruit for firms with 0-74 lawyers?
  12. I agree. I actually think it could alleviate the stress and potentially help avoid candidates "striking out" if the firms can just straight up ask first choice.
  13. How do you address the 6 week span that OCI occur in? Does the in-firm process start right after OCI #1 or does it only begin as of a set date? If it is the latter, then would this not just create an in-firm process where all firms try to line up candidates on days 1 and 2?
  14. Been following the other threads on here the past couple of days and very interested in the discussion / debate. So here goes... I'd like to see what you guys would do if you were to create a new OCI process (from scratch or modification from the current). What would it look like? Try to keep it to 6 or fewer bullet points / steps.
  15. Go do your readings. Take a week off the job recruit - start again.
  16. CHILL. NOW. Normal progression of a lawyer's career: 1) Graduate law school 2) Get a job. A job. any job. 3) Get called to the bar. 4) Learn what the law actually is. 5) Learn how to be a lawyer 6a) Build a book of business 6b) Leave private practice. You need to focus on where you are at right now. You are at 0.
  17. 8-10pm depending on workload. Friday’s usually by 5
  18. Still waiting for the annual “should I wear a poppy or does that mean I support war?” question...
  19. You don't reject. You take it into the PATH and dispose of it. You don't need to worry about it fitting if your school bag / briefcase / carry on luggage that you plan on bringing.
  20. Not to sound wasteful, but if a firm gives you something and you can't carry it around, ditch it. The firm is not going to expect you to come back to them on day 2 with proof you still have their stress ball as a pre-condition to them hiring you. Seriously - a major part of this process is being able to pick up on social cues and reacting. If you are going to be this robotic, you may be in for a struggle.
  21. You’ll never get an accurate number from using just this site alone.
  22. I understand the similarities with Lakehead’s program, however, I attribute that more to the practicalities/difficulties in getting articles for those in northern Ontario. Lakehead still staying away the bootcamps...
