  1. Il y a un groupe Facebook séparé pour le programme JD français mais nous pouvons aussi nous joindre au groupe général.
  2. I have met alumni from the program working in a variety of firms (large, mid-size, and small all over Ontario) as well as former federal and supreme court clerks. Those I have asked told me they did not feel at a disadvantage.
  3. You don't need to limit yourself to French firms. I have a number of friends who have graduated from the program and work almost exclusively in English.
  4. The email I received said you only had to choose 2 courses (I am in the French program so those 2 courses may vary from the English ones). I assume the others will be added to our schedule automatically. Check the email you received from the faculty.
  5. That is how I understand it. But I haven't started first year either so confirmation from a current student would be good.
  6. If you look at the footnote at the bottom of the timetables, it explains that the tutorials are not mandatory and are coordinated through the Common Law Student Centre. However, each tutorial appears to refer to a different course (look at the course code), so I would expect them to run four times a week (although possibly not every week, hoping a current student can chime in to confirm).
  7. I have a friend who used to live in a 1 bedroom in one of the apartment towers on Lees about 5 years ago for less than $1100 + hydro. One bus stop (soon to be LRT stop) away from campus or a short walk away. She loved it. I don't know how much prices have changed since then. (Make sure you visit the building before you commit. Not all the buildings on Lees are to the same standard.)
  8. Thanks for the info. I assumed as much, but got a little confused after hearing about a Montreal recruit.
  9. How does the legal market in Montreal work? Are there lawyers practising solely in common law? Do lawyers possess a degree in civil law to get licenced by the Barreau? How does this translate to student recruitment and employment? (My questions mostly relate to biglaw jobs.)
  10. Another thing to consider is how the loan would affect your co-signer's credit (even if you don't default). I don't know how it works for student LOCs, but being a co-signer on a car loan affects someone's ability to obtain other personal loans, such as a mortgage. I hope everything works out for you.
  11. I believe you are missing some steps. You have to apply for specific scholarships (click on search and select the scholarships you want to apply for). Different scholarships have different application requirements. Make sure you apply for the Admission Scholarships (English or French depending on your program), which require filling out a Financial Questionnaire. By applying to the Admission Scholarships, you will be considered for a list of scholarships (10-12 or so). However, there are also a number of other scholarships that require separate applications.
  12. You can try reaching out to current law students/articling students if you are looking for insight into law school and articling in general. In my experience, they are more than willing to talk to a prospective law student. Look into your Facebook friends, alumni from your high school, friends of friends, etc. for connections.
  13. Any good podcast recommendations?
  14. See the following links. The second one is for out-of-province students. https://scholarships.uottawa.ca/p/a/17298/ https://scholarships.uottawa.ca/p/a/17315/ I says for students admitted before or in the Fall of 2017. Not sure if there is a similar scholarship for new students.
  15. My status was updated on uozone. I have not received an email yet and my status has not been changed on OLSAS.
