  1. I am currently articling and would love to know what I can do now to make myself more marketable. Thoughts?
  2. Do associates at boutique litigation firms (i.e. Polley Faith, Babbin Bessner Spry, Henein Hutchinson, etc) make the same amount as those on Bay street ? How do their salaries compare with respect to bonuses, etc?
  3. As an incoming articling student, I find it hard to relate to older associates and partners. Lawyers : at firm social events, do you prefer when students talk to you about your practice or your social life ? Is there anything you secretly roll your eyes at? I understand that generally any topic is good and keeping a conversation is a big part of practicing the law - but any tips would be appreciated!
  4. I'm looking for somewhere I can go to pickup food quickly before heading back to the office in the evening...or even order!
  5. I'm wondering if you guys know of any good places to grab healthy food quick around Bay/Financial district when working late. I know Marche near Union is usually a good bet, but other places (like those in the First Canadian Place) seem to close at 5 pm.
  6. Titled: 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests Volume V. Includes Preptests 62-71, 10 Previously administered LSAT's with Comparative Reading Questions. Please message if interested!
  7. Unlocked. Please message if interested - in Toronto.
  8. I know there used to be a thread titled "We're starting articles soon...give us advice!" Does anyone have a link to it? It disappeared and I can't find it. If it doesnt exist anymore, can we start a new thread?
  9. Grazy - do you work at a large Bay St firm? I'm wondering if all firms have different processes.
  10. How does the process work for most biglaw firms? Do all the partners meet in a room and discuss candidates and take a general majority vote? Are associates involved? Do firms generally decide on what practice areas need to be covered and then decide which articling student could fill that gap as an associate? Do firms take into account how much you as a student cost them (i.e. for meal expenses) and do they look at your docketed hours?
  11. Are the questions for professional responsibility interspersed within sections related to civil litigation, criminal, family, or are they in a separate section on their own? Also: does anyone know what the order of sections is? I.e.: Criminal, civil lit, family, public law?
  12. For those of you who have written the bar, 1) Did you always find the answers in the materials? I've done some practice tests and find it hard to always find the answer in the materials - i'm tempted to just guess based on my own knowledge - is this something you did? 2) Did you use OLE's indices? the detailed table of contents? whats the best way to find answers fast?
  13. So how would the salaries for the following compare for an associate or partner at: a top Toronto litigation boutique a Biglaw full service Bay Street firm a midsized Toronto firm an IP firm a PI boutique Crown Counsel? Also, do corporate lawyers make more or less than litigation lawyers? I realize this question does not make much sense because it might be dependant on the actual work they do and the firm they work for, but I'm trying to get a general idea of what different lawyers make. The ZSA website is not very helpful TBH.
  14. General litigation? IP matters? Does it really vary from one to another?
