  1. Hi everyone, I don't come from a business background and did not take any business courses in law school. I have to do a corporate rotation for articling and feel very unprepared. Does anyone have any links to resources or reading material recommendations (particularly related to securities if possible) so I can have somewhat of a foundation before I start articling? As always, very grateful for everyone's advice. I don't know what I would do without this forum sometimes!
  2. And thank you @realpseudonym for getting me in touch with them!
  3. @artsydork @Aureliuse thank you so much - very grateful for you taking time out of your busy days to offer me some advice. Thanks for keeping it real too! I'll be in touch if I have more questions - THANK YOU
  4. Happy New Year everyone. Just wondering if anyone had any advice about moving from Big Law to Family Law after articling. I was very fortunate to secure a 2L summer position during the recruit at a Bay Street firm, and was offered articling which I accepted. While I am very grateful for the opportunity, Big Law is definitely not for me. I did not find the work interesting, I did not feel passionate about or emotionally connected to the work, and I just morally/philosophically don't agree with the practice and politics of Big Law. I don't want to end up getting stuck in Big Law practice. I took Family Law this year and l loved it. How can I go about with making a switch to family law? What does the job market look like for family lawyers right now? What should I be doing in 3L and articling to set myself up for success? Thank you so much in advance.
  5. Should we buy textbooks ASAP or wait until we have our first classes? Thanks in advance
  6. Just declined my offer - really hoping it goes to someone here! Good luck!
  7. Thank you so much for all of your feedback everyone, I decided to choose Windsor! I really appreciate the time you put into your responses, they were so helpful
  8. Just wanted to post quickly here to get some outside opinions before I make a decision... I was accepted to TRU at the end of May, assuming it would be the only school I got into. Two days ago I got into Windsor Single JD and that is complicating my decision. I am from Toronto and hope to practice in Toronto upon completing law school. I am very outdoorsy and was very excited to be moving to Kamloops for 3 years, Windsor is not very appealing to me in that respect. I also know that TRU places a stronger emphasis on Indigenous legal perspectives which is another big draw for me. I already leased an apartment and am unsure how difficult it will be to sublet it to another person before September. I know everyone on this forum says go to school in the province you want to practice, but at the end of the day I think it is the student that secures the job, not the school they go to. I know TRU students from Toronto who are now articling at Toronto firms, they just had to put in a bit more work networking-wise to establish themselves in the Toronto legal community. Thanks in advance
  9. Accepted off the wait list just now! Check previous posts for stats I was rejected off the Windsor wait list last year so this feels pretty nice! Will 99.999999% be declining so I hope the seat goes to someone here - good luck with the wait everyone!
  10. Where in Kamloops is a good place to buy furniture? Thanks!
  11. Deadline was June 15th good luck!
  12. Hi friends, Does Orientation Week start on September 4th or is that the first day of classes? Thanks
  13. IN OFF THE WAITLIST TODAY!!!! Received end of May/early June email and was told I was #5 on the waitlist. Will be accepting !!!!! This has been my dream for five years and I am so happy and grateful to be given this chance. Don’t give up my friends. See you all in September!!
  14. Thanks for your input ! Good luck and congrats on your acceptances so far
