  1. Thanks for your kind refreshing what I learned years ago. At least from what the source you referred to, it explicitly grants paralegals under LSUC privileges of drafting legal documents (presumably including drafting contracts in authorized activities under 6(2)-4 and -6) under certain circumstances defined in 6(1).
  2. Could you kindly refer to the source which restricts or forbids paralegal to draft a contract? I was practicing as a paralegal of LSUC for a few years but never heard of it — at least from rule of conduct or any related legal source I was never aware of it. The only thing I knew may be relevant to is paralegal cannot touch any case with potentially $25,000 or more money in the legal dispute so they may not be allowed to draft any contact in such cases.
  3. Good news to hear that! UNB at least did not offer Construction Law in last year. I would hope it can offer it in next year when I am in my 2L.
  4. Dalhousie considers graduate CGPA, so I believe you will have a shot if you can score LSAT 160+
  5. Yeah, we do have reasons to worry the exact number of seats provided by Oxford. However, I wouldn't think Oxford's estimates in total seat numbers deviate more than 10% from the actual one -- partially credible evidence is that: you can check Oxford's estimate about seats in Ontario is very close to the number provided by OUAC (OUAC: 1500 ish for last few years; Oxford: 1430 assuming Lakehead 79). So unless actual seat numbers from non-Ontario law schools are far cry from Oxford's estimate (welcome any correction with evidence), I believe the actual acceptance odds this year are likely to exceed 40% by incorporating the above two updates into accounts: 1. missing seat number of UofA. 2. Oxford's estimate of lower number seats provided by Ontario law schools. "Acceptance odds" defines as below: the chance you can be accepted by at least one law school.
  6. No matter what the number of seats provided by UofA are missing from the calculation above, it will change the acceptance odds to be greater than my original estimate (somewhere around 40%). With respect to definition of "application", check the last page of the statistical chart and you can tell the applicants are defined under the context of "academic year", which refers to applicants for law school application instead of for writing LSAT (we all know LSAT itself doesn't involve the concept of academic years although it is used for applications under certain academic year). So I have no doubts in believing the 6745 applicants are accurate number of people applying Canada's law schools for this year as of now subject to following terms (as copied from the LSAT): • These data are displayed by Academic Year, which is the same as the law school enrollment year. For example, academic year 2018 or 2018-2019 would indicate the academic year beginning in the fall of 2018 and extending into spring 2019. • The Current Volume data tables include applicants for all academic terms. Current Volume reports published before 2018 summarized applicants for the fall term only and are not comparable to these new volume reports. • ABA data reflect applicants and applications for ABA-approved law schools. • Deferrals are not included in either the ABA or Canadian data. Deferrals are defined as "applicants admitted for a prior term who were granted a postponed enrollment to the current term." • Please note as defined in this report, an applicant is a candidate who submits one or more applications for any academic term. • The data for this report are updated every evening and will reflect current volumes as of that time. • This report is best viewed in Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer, or Safari.
  7. I could be wrong but it seems nationally the ratio of English JD applicants to the respective seats may be around 2.5:1, or approx. 40% applicants can be admitted in some of recent years. The overall applicants is around 6745 per the post below: The total seats this year is about 2650 per the source of oxford seminars (assuming Lakehead seats 80 and TRU 120).
  8. Sorry I applied none of law schools in Ontario so I may not be able to help at this point.
  9. From my own experience, it seems okay to have your prof. to send as many number of schools as you need. The reason is nowadays most of law schools accept reference letters by emails(i.e. hard copy is no longer required). So it probably just costs your prof. a few moments of “click and send ” as long as a universal letter is already written up in hand for you. But it does appear more considerate to give your prof. the list of schools to be applied all at once.
  10. Just received the email from LSAC which says the policy will generally not be retroactive except perfect score ban which applies to the past 5 years. See the original text below: Dear LSAT registrant, You are receiving this communication because you have taken, or have registered to take, the LSAT in the 2019-2020 testing year. We want you to know that LSAC is committed to providing a fair and equitable testing program and maintaining the integrity of the LSAT. We will be updating our test-taking limit policy later this summer and it will go into effect with the September 2019 LSAT administration. We are still finishing up the final details of the new policy, but we know that there has been a lot of conversation on social media recently, so we wanted to share the basic elements in an effort to reduce the speculation and any anxiety. Based on our estimates, this policy will impact a small number of people – less than 1 percent of all LSAT test takers. In effect starting with the September 2019 test administration, test takers would be permitted to take the LSAT: Three times in a single testing year (the testing year goes from June 1 to May 31). Five times within the current and five past testing years (the period in which LSAC reports scores to law schools). A total of seven times over a lifetime. This policy is forward-looking, not retroactive. Tests taken prior to September 2019 will not count against these numerical limits. In addition, test takers would not be permitted to retake the LSAT if they have already scored a 180 (perfect score) within the current and five past testing years, the period in which LSAC reports scores to law schools. This policy will be applied retroactively. There will be an appeals process for test takers who have special circumstances and want to request an exception to this policy. We hope that this helps to address many of the questions. We will provide more detail in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, please reach out to us at 215.968.1001 or at [email protected] if you have additional concerns regarding our test-taking limit policy. Sincerely, The Law School Admission Council Please note: To ensure timely and consistent delivery of communications from the Law School Admission Council, please add [email protected] to your Safe Senders and contact lists.
  11. It’s surprising that no one in the forum seems to care it very much. 😅
  12. OP don’t forget you still can try to transfer to Ottawa or Queen’s after your 1L at Windsor although there’s no guarantee to succeed by doing it. Cheers!
  13. 2.36 may not be the full deal-breaker for getting into a Canadian's law school (unless your goal is UT or other high prestigious ones). If you can obtain an LSAT score of 165+ with other good "softs", I wouldn't doubt you do have a good shot at Manitoba, Saskatchewan and TRU, and Alberta worth a try, too. Cheers!
  14. Hi OP, just wonder if the tuition includes the bus pass. I checked it online with all item listed but didn’t find the bus pass for students. If not included, how much monthly for students. Thanks for any input!😀
