    Moving from Defence to Crown

    Yeah for sure! I only referred to them as "less desirable" as that's how people tend to describe them but I feel like it'd be kinda cool. Small town feel, etc. Thanks for your input!

    Thanks so much for your response! I am definitely open to moving to less "desirable" locations. yeah the whole time frame thing was one of my concerns as well. I may be doing my own thing for a little while before postings come out for the Crown. Thank you for your input and advice! I really appreciate it

    Amazing! Thanks. I know how to find jobs at Alberta Justice already, but wasn't really sure about BC. Thank you so much for the help!

    Hahah, well I did apply there for articles, just didn't work out for me. I have enjoyed defence so far, but I think I am better suited to work for the Crown.

    Awesome! That's great to hear. I was wondering a bit about the recruitment process.. Would I apply after I am officially done articling or would I start applying closer to call, etc. If you know, I'd love to get your advice!!
  7. Hello Everyone - Just looking for some general advice. I am currently articling in criminal defence in Alberta. My employer has not yet given me a firm offer of being hired back as an associate, but have made some comments on me starting up my own practice once I am called. This scares the crap out of me to say the least. I want to start looking for an associate job, or ideally, would like to apply to work with the Crown. I've spoken to a couple of people that work out of the Provincial Crown's in Calgary and they have told me that a willingness to relocate is the best way for me to taken seriously as a good candidate. Now I am totally willing to move around in Alberta if that means that I could potentially get a job with the Crown, but I am wondering if anyone else has any experience with doing this (defence -> Crown). I want to get a feel for the likelihood and/or mere possibility of this even happening so any input would be greatly appreciated.
