  1. We did a basic motion. And that was in 2nd year of law school. It's been, well, years since then. As far as statements of claim/defence, nothing. No Applications or Actions.
  2. Always had a notepad since day one so I'm good on that front.
  3. Hahaha I wish...certainly feels like being judged right away. Esp when the principal is a perfectionist.
  4. Started articling recently (late) at a PI firm (plaintiff's side). Not sure how "normal" my experience is but I was assigned some files to go over and simply told to draft statements of claim and defence without any guidance. It is not something that is taught in law school. I am trying to look at precedents but feel somewhat anxious given my lack of experience. Is this fairly typical as far as expectations go? What is the best way to handle a situation like this? Thanks.
  5. Currently interviewing at personal injury firms (plaintiff's side) in SW Ontario for articling. What would be a competitive, reasonable going market rate for places like Hamilton, KW or London? Note: the firm is mid-sized and not new so generally established. I have heard various figures thrown around anywhere from 35k to 50k and even higher. Not sure what to make of it. I am trying to gauge what is reasonable. Mostly interested in Hamilton / KW. Thanks.
  6. Thanks but you may have lucked out. I called at least 10 different PI firms in Southwestern Ontario and all of them told me they are not looking for an articling student - and this was after ruling out the ones that participate in more organized recruits and hire a year in advance. The leading firms you listed are usually the ones that have more organized hiring and typically well in advance. The trick is to somehow find the "leftover" ones.
  7. Anybody have any articling leads (2019-2020) for PI in southwestern Ontario - Windsor, London, Hamilton, KW and maybe Ottawa? Came across a few in Toronto but cost of housing is too high. Still looking. If you have any leads please PM me. Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
