  1. A few I would recommend: Life sentence by Christy Blatchford, written by a late courtroom reporter that essentially takes a look at a lot of the problems involved in the Canadian criminal justice system. Math on Trial: How Numbers get used and abused in the courtroom by Coralie Colmez. The Undoing Project by Micheal Lewis, or anything by Micheal Lewis
  2. In fairness they would be the only school to do just grades. Presumably some people will not take the option for optional pass fail. This would then make TRU the only school in BC to have absolutely no grades.
  3. TRU has not officially gone pass fail. Faculty council is voting on it next week.
  4. Yes and for some reason optional pass fail is off the table because TRU is unable to implement it because: reasons.
  5. Agreed, if you are dead set on doing something maybe just do some general reading as this is one of the best ways to improve your writing. Especially useful would be reading things like the economist or some denser non-fiction. Or just read whatever you would read for pleasure as you lose that ability once you start school.

    TRU vs. UofC

    I would also recommend TRU. The school has a pretty good connection with the Vancouver Criminal Bar. This year there was a panel where lawyers from Vancouver and Kamloops came to the school to talk about Criminal law practice. As for Kamloops vs. Calgary it depends on what your interests are. Kamloops obviously doesn't have the nightlife of Calgary but is 40 minutes away from sun peaks a ski resort that never seems to be busy. There are plenty of hikes and has amazing golf courses for the months you can play.
  7. I’m not sure about every school but at mine they provide ear plugs for exams and you don’t event notice the sound.
  8. I would emphasize the typing class. Exams are almost always a time crunch and being able to type faster is a big advantage
  9. I found a place last year using Kijiji. You could also post in the TRU Law Black Market page on facebook and see if there are any graduating students who are leaving their place after this semester.
  10. I really appreciated reading these while I was going through applications so I thought I would start my own. Won't/ not qualified to answer any admissions questions.
  11. Most Law schools have a B median curve, UBC posts their grade distributions online if you're curious http://www.allard.ubc.ca/sites/www.allard.ubc.ca/files/uploads/registration/grades_dist_1718.pdf
  12. To the best of my knowledge no Law school offers a January start term.
  13. I imagine the same is true of UBC undergrads at UBC Law. Talented students go to those universities, like the cities and decide to stay there for law. I think that explains it a lot more than those schools favoring their own students.
  14. I would also recommend the powerscore bibles. You probably want to buy quite a few practice tests from LSAC. 7Sage is an immensely helpful YouTube channel for Logic games. I also found “The LSAT Trainer” channel to be somewhat useful for non logic game stuff.
