  1. Numbers listed on NALP seem to be inconsistent with some Bay Street firms' websites, while many Bay Street firms don't post their 2L salaries at all. Perhaps we could create an updated list? From what I could find, Bennett Jones and Baker McKenzie both pay 2L summer students $1700/week. I've read conflicting reports about McCarthy Tetreault ($1700-1900?) as well as Davies ($1700-1900?).
  2. But what if it doesn’t work out? Isn’t a law degree a good thing to fall back on?
  3. Or is it worth it to finish my degree? I know I don’t want to be a lawyer. I want to go to acting school.
  4. Thanks for the reply! When you say it doesn't seem like a typical summer big law student job, what exactly do you mean by that? The descriptions seem fairly similar?
  5. Just curious, huge factor in the decision to apply or not - I know certain businesses like to get around having to pay students under the guise of it being called an "internship."
  6. Looking for summaries for 1L following Professors/courses: Constitutional - Keyes Property - Cameron Legal Foundations - Mallett If you or anyone you know can be of any assistance, this would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Has anyone had any experience volunteering with Pro Bono Students Canada? If so, what position and how was your experience? Also curious as to whether the time commitment was worth it, especially given the heavy workload in 1L.
  8. As enrolment day approaches, I'm sure most of us have been browsing through potential small blocks as well as thematics. My question to current and former students is this: which first-year thematics have received the most positive feedback among you and your peers?
  9. For those of us who've accepted our offers, paid the deposit, and joined the Facebook group, what is our next step? As I understand, enrolment takes place on June 20 at 10 am. Is this the next thing to take care of? Am I missing anything? Is uOttawa going to be contacting us about the enrolment process? Furthermore, has anyone activated their uottawa.ca student email? SO MANY QUESTIONS
  10. As I understand, grades in law school are determined mostly by exams and essays. As someone who prefers this grading structure above one allocating large percentages of a grade to group projects, I'm hoping someone can confirm my understanding.
  11. Would someone currently attending/recently graduated be willing to do an updated list for Ottawa?
  12. Ottawa is the only school I can't find tuition figures for. Am I missing something here? This link (https://www.uottawa.ca/university-fees/) doesn't seem to provide figures for the JD program. I've gone ahead and emailed them, but if anyone is aware of where tuition is posted publicly, I would appreciate it.
  13. Is that so? Common practice among students living in the Golden Triangle? And thanks for the rest of the information! I definitely want to be able to walk to school but if it's a few minutes longer to live in a less "student ghetto-y" neighbourhood I don't mind. With that being said, is Sandy Hill "student ghetto-y" enough to try to avoid altogether?
  14. Not yet. I plan on visiting in the next month or so
  15. My status still says "pending review" on the Windsor portal! I received my acceptance letter via email. I'm assuming the portal will update in due time.
