    Reading ahead

    If you really want to read something, read case law.

    Why did you pick UofT over Osgoode?

    My daughter is a 1L at Osgoode this year. She was accepted to both U of T and Osgoode, but chose Osgoode for the reasons Deadpool mentioned, greater opportunities to work in clinics and experiential education. Even though a higher percentage of the U of T class may end up on Bay, that stat alone does not prove a cause and effect.

    Turning 30 in 1L

    All universities in Ontario have to comply with AODA, so you should be able to manoeuvre your walker around the law school.
  4. If you do get a law related job during 1L summer, does that help in getting a 2L summer job?

    Average Starting Salary

    I know nothing about mergers, but I think that Davy Jones has a nice ring to it. Also lends itself well to myths and story telling. "Whatever happened to that young associate?" "He's in Davy Jones's locker"

    Is it just me, or does anyone else want to see those two firms merge and call themselves Davy Jones?
  7. My friend works for PWC. He is their chief privacy officer. Basically it is an "in house counsel" type job.
  8. I try to actively discourage anyone from going the UK route, for the reasons you stated. The person I know however is a unique situation. He has been in the legal field for a number of years and does have connections. I believe he already has his articling position lined up. And then he will practice in an area that is comprised mostly of sole practitioners.
  9. To add a further wrinkle. I know someone who is in this program right now. He does a lot of the program through distance learning, though not necessarily online. He will do two summer sessions in the UK of I think 4 to 6 weeks. Those two sessions will check off the "bricks and mortar" requirements of the degree. Once he is done he will have to go through the NCA process and article before he can be called.
  10. It's hard to have your cake and eat it too.
  11. The Bora Laskin Faculty of Law will still be there, the OP's acceptance to it may not.

    McMaster Law?

    I agree that it is wrong to lie and am in no way condoning what this person did. However, if you are relying on what someone told you regarding a non-existent law school and how to prep for the LSAT, without doing your own due diligence, then that is on you.
  13. While I think going this route is a terrible idea, you statement is not entirely accurate. If someone were to get their degree through distance learning, there are further requirements that they have to fulfill but they can get called.
