  1. They use the Angoff method for marking the exams, similar to most other exams. There is no curve. Pass rates that have been released have pass rate at 83% (2013-2016). This information is all available on the LSO website.
  2. Few things in finance require the ability to do complex calculations. Most calculations are done in excel, and you just need a really solid grasp of basic mathematics. Even the CFA exams, recognised as one of the hardest exams in finance doesn’t require advanced math skills.
  3. Thanks. I’ve done some research, so the main recruit is for summer positions (which could lead to an articling position), and the articling recruit is for summer before 3L students? How would LLM get involved? My understanding is that say June 2019 would be recruiting for summer 2020 start. I wouldn’t be able to get involved with the recruit process until after the LLM, which would leave to a gap of a year before starting?
  4. Thankfully I’ve got a solid network at the big firms - would the LLM at Osgoode not also allow me to use the organised application progress? They have a Q&A on Wednesday and I’m trying to do as much research as possible. I know I’m an unconventional candidate, but hope my other education/ experience should help set me apart. Thanks for the advice.
  5. I have a 1st class LL.B degree from a mid level university in the UK. I’m British, and moved to Canada a few years ago (ie I didn’t go overseas for the degree). Put briefly, I never pursued a career in law after graduation, instead opting for wealth management. Times have changed, and I’ve now decided I want to be a tax lawyer. I would have: 6 years of PWM experience, with 5+ tax exams. CFA designation (and other less glamorous designations) already achieved. UK LL.B (1st class). LLM in tax at Osgoode. Good network at some of the big firms. Passed NCA/ bar exams. Am I being too optimistic, or does the CFA, LLM in tax & finance work experience carry enough weight to put me on equal footing to a Canadian JD for a big firm post graduation?
  6. I’m also interested in this. Doesn’t seem to have been running for very many years. Looks to be the best LLM (tax) program available.
