  1. Feeling exactly the same way. Has anyone encountered any "Real-Estate Law 101" type articles/blogs that they would recommend to better understand this material?
  2. I think you should still try to find Articling if you can. I am seeing new positions pop up everyday, so you should at least apply to a few! Also, I believe you can back out of the LPP with all of your money until the first couple of weeks of the program, so you should do it ASAP if you want to avoid any financial consequences! Good luck I know it's hard but hope you make the right decision regardless!
  3. Believe it or not, we're likely not going to get a marriage contract either. My partner is a hopeless romantic and doesn't believe in trying to apportion our future estate based on financial considerations.
  4. Jumping in - but I know a few people who bought it from Emond
  5. Did you use any websites or apps that you can recommend?
  6. I bought the OLE indices, and those came with a sample exam!
  7. I'm gonna attempt the June one too
  8. Ok that's so reassuring. Everything has kind of been a whirlwind, and every wedding website makes it seem like the world's largest ordeal!
  9. Hahaha, definitely the planner in the relationship.
  10. Does anyone have any experience with wedding planning while Articling? I recently got engaged (very exciting), and thinking about getting married next summer, but I dont know if I'll be able to handle planning while trying to Article. Any advice or anecdotes?
  11. I also had well below-average grades in 1L, and improved significantly in 2L-3L. I think everyone is different, but something that worked for me personally was to use upper years' notes/CANs and then making my own quicksheets/tables based on those. I also started pre-writing for exams which saved me a lot of time during the exams that I could dedicate to issue-spotting and actually answering the questions. I think in 1L I didn't balance my time well either. I was too focused on "getting grades" so I put everything else on the back-burner for a full year, but for me that just did not work. So in 2L-3L, I did a lot more - joined some intramurals, focused on balancing between academics and extra-curriculars, and found myself doing a lot better. PM me if you want more tips
  12. Hmm that makes sense, but given that my entire legal education was centred around me learning how to do this on a computer/ using databases, I just think there are testing methods that are more accurate representations of the profession, eg a computerized exam and having access to legal research softwares to find these answers. Then again, I have no idea about the cost/benefit of a different testing method, and maybe I'm just bitter because of being stressed for Solicitors.
  13. To be honest, the more I reflect on the exam, the more I realize that it was probably one of the dumbest ways of testing us to see if we're "ready to become lawyers". In no way do I feel like I retained any of the information that I was forced to read, and honestly, it just seems to be a money-grab by the LSO.
  14. Does the Solicitors have as much PR as the Barristers did? (The Barristers was like 35% PR I would say..)
