  1. Windsor Office just sent out interview invites to applicants.
  2. I'm sorry, are you saying you know for certain Windsor hasn't invited anyone to interviews, or that you're certain Windsor has but you didn't get one yet? I think it's the former but I just want to confirm.
  3. As some of you might know, the deadline to apply for articling positions with Crown Attorney's Offices outside Toronto has passed. But Crown Attorney's Offices outside of Toronto don't have a synchronized schedule of when they conduct interviews and will typically do so whenever they finish reviewing applications and have the time to host interviewees. Could members of this board update this thread if they know certain Crown Attorney's Offices outside Toronto have sent out invitations for interviews?
  4. Does anyone know what areas of litigation Teplitsky Colson focuses on? I know the practices they list on their website, but I don't know which areas are the firm's bread and butter practices.
  5. Asking for a friend, anyone hear from keyser mason ball llp?
  6. Money and getting immigration status aren't a problem. Are there any other issues, asides that I need to pass the NY bar and learn US law?
  7. Does anyone have an opinion about the likelihood of success for an Ontario JD student with a mid-A average to move into the New York market for criminal law, after being called to the Ontario bar? How about another legal market in the USA? What are some impediments that I may encounter?
  8. I'm not preferring the FCA to the ONCA, I'd obviously be happy clerking at any appeal level court. I'm just wondering if not taking courses in the areas of law the FCA typically sees would be problematic.
  9. I've got a solid A average, very extensive experience in assisting research and editing, and stellar reference letters. However, I don't plan to take any courses in the areas of law a federal court of appeal typically deals with (i.e. No immigration, tax, IP, etc.) I have taken admin law, crim pro, and evidence. Will this be an issue?
  10. I think Monsoon's question is about whether the Toronto Crown Offices informed interviewees that offers might be delayed because they needed to seek authorization from their superiors in order to hire students. The Peel Crown Office still hasn't obtained authorization and it's been 4 weeks since their interview concluded.
  11. Is anyone still waiting for Brampton to possibly offer them an articling position?
  12. hmyo, I noticed in earlier posts that you were extended interviews at large or midsize firms. Were all your interviews at midsize or large firms on Bay St.? What are your grades like? Maybe they just hired the candidate with better grades because it helps justify their billable rates....
  13. Let my example be a lesson for future applicants on how fickle this process can be. I met the head partner of the practice group, he said I wowed him during interviews, my GPA probably puts me in the top ~8% of my class, I made the last impression on them in their interview cycle, I told him they were my top choice and had good reasons, and when I left he even winked and told me that they'd be in touch. Didn't hear anything. (I'm still hoping I'll hear from them tomorrow because they are a very small boutique)
  14. I emailed both the partner who interviewed me and the one in charge of recruiting about 30 mins after 5 pm. No reply... Hoping there's still something. Maybe the student who got their offer didn't act on it and may still yet decline it tomorrow. lol who knows
  15. my top choice didn't reply to my inquiry as to whether their recruitment had concluded. I'm still holding out hope.
  16. Is it possible that firms that don't wish for a student to hold their offer for 24 hours simply didn't send out offers and are waiting until that period is up???
  17. Guys, if you don't want to post which firms called you to extend an offer for fear of giving up your anonymity, that's fine. Could you just post that you've heard from a crim firm, insurance defence firms, or one of the many MAG offices, etc.?
