  1. I did an Honours thesis in Canadian History and while it helped me in the first year Indigenous and Constitutional law classes at the beginning, my classmates quickly caught up. I may have understood the context of the course a bit better, but ultimately studying Canadian political history didn't really help when doing a Paramountcy test. The only real advantage my undergrad gave me was being used to doing a lot of reading and not being terrified of a 35+ page major paper. And honestly, that's negligible.
  2. I bought a new car the summer after 1L while I was working. You'll need to have income coming in to be approved for financing by my understanding. The only reason it made sense for us to buy was that my wife works during the year and we could afford it without using debt to pay debt. Coming out of law school you're going to have a lot of student debt, I would avoid worsening it by using your line of credit to pay for a car.
  3. It depends on whether or not you want to stay in Saskatchewan. Most of the big firms in Sask only hire 1Ls and then (usually) bring them back for articling. Other provinces tend to hire more 2Ls, but there are a few jobs in Sask to be found. Most students manage to line up an articling position by the end of their second summer. I've only heard of a few people not landing articling positions before graduation.
  4. I'd recommend just bussing. It's what a lot of us do.
  5. Just a reminder to any incoming 1Ls that there is an icebreaker event at the Broken Rack tonight from 8-11!
  6. Giving away first year textbooks to an incoming College of Law student who has accepted their offer and is definitely attending this fall. You must give the books away to an incoming U of S student next year through this forum (publicly) and add one additional primary textbook (if the list changes or there is a new edition) or a secondary text you found useful (i.e. if no changes to the list or new editions; cannot be the Criminal Code). The hope is to extend this generosity to future years for as long as possible.After receipt of the textbooks, the recipient must make a post in this thread.These terms are to be explained to and carried out by future recipients as well.First person to message me and agree to these terms gets the books. I will be in Saskatoon on Thursday next week, or we can meet up the weekend before school begins.
  7. This is correct. First day of orientation you'll pick up a personalized package with your personal orientation schedule and you'll find out about your sections at that point.
  8. You have a break from 11:15 to 1 most days. Guest speakers are not every week, and usually involve free pizza. Tutorials are broken into even smaller groups and you'll have 1-2 of them for an hour on Wednesdays at varying times (meaning you'll often get a lunch break). Not to mention that you're done at 12:30 on Wednesdays. The Kway tutorials are new, but they are certainly not every week and that is a range of times where everyone's tutorial is scheduled.
  9. “The official u of s lsa social group”
  10. The first year class schedule isn’t released yet so I assume it will be similar to last year. Last year, first years didn’t have classes over the noon hour and I assume it will be the same again.
  11. Nothing through the bookstore. The LSA usually does a clothing order that arrived around December last year, but backpacks weren’t an option (not to say that they wouldn’t be an option this year because I honestly don’t know).
  12. I had two friends who lived in residence. Most, including myself live off campus.
  13. I’d recommend posting to the LSA FaceBook page. It is much more active.
