  1. https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/en/students/programs/combined-programs/programme-droit-canadien
  2. It requires you to have an LL.L., not a JD. https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/en/students/programs/jd-national-program
  3. If you are enrolled in the French common law program, you must write all your assignments and exams in French (except in the up-to-five English courses you are allowed to take). https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/fr/etudiants/centre-etudiant/inscription/inscription-responsabilites-etudiants/reglements-scolaires#a20 (Règle 20.2(f))
  4. There is a construction law class offered in the French common law section.
  5. Programme de common law en français (French JD program)
  6. Ottawa used a course-by-course approach for 1Ls. Just not upper years.
  7. Also a 1L PCLF here (full time). I read every case and made my own outlines for all classes. However, I did not brief cases as I found it mostly a waste of time. Personally, I found the workload underwhelming and had plenty of time for doing other things.
  8. You have to take the same section in both fall and winter.
  9. Are students expected to move to Montréal even though most learning will be done remotely? (I'm not a McGill or U de M student, just genuinely curious.)
  10. Note that you don't need to write the LSAT to apply to and get accepted into the uOttawa French common law program (indeed, most students I know haven't written the LSAT). I am a current student in the French common law program. Feel free to PM me.
  11. Email from the uOttawa common law dean: "The Executive Committee of the Faculty has approved a plan that will give all students the ability to elect for a Satisfactory/Non-Satisfactory option for their courses (or the option to proceed with their ordinary letter grade). Upper year students will have until the last day of classes to opt-out of the regular grading scheme and have all their courses graded on a Satisfactory/Non-Satisfactory basis. Because of the unique nature of the 1L program, 1Ls will be offered slightly more flexibility and will not be required to elect for a blanket choice of Satisfactory/Non-Satisfactory."
  12. Were the internships still at the interview stage or had the students already been selected/contracts signed? I'm really sorry this happened to you. Good luck with your job search.
  13. Il y a un groupe Facebook séparé pour le programme JD français mais nous pouvons aussi nous joindre au groupe général.
