  1. Hello! Thank you for your post and advice! However, I do have to disagree with whomever told you that. Environmental law entails A. fighting for the trees (e.g. when a party illegally dumps chemicals into the natural environment, an environmental lawyer working for the Crown will advocate on behalf of the natural environment), B. Consult with businesses to provide advice on environmental laws, C. as you've mentioned, draft, propose and/or revise environmental regulations, and so on.
  2. I read on LSAC that students who are not satisfied with their July 2019 LSAT Score, they can cancel and retake their LSAT free of charge if they send notice within five business days of receiving their score.

  3. Bonjour ! Merci pour votre réponse bien écrite et bien informée, je l'ai vraiment appréciée ! Quant à Bora Laskin, merci pour votre contribution ! Je ferai d'autres recherches sur tel programme. Et je suis d'accord, il y a beaucoup d'avantages à un petit programme comme le mien à l'Université de Windsor. J'ai eu des conversations avec mes professeurs à la cafétéria et ils connaissent le nom de la plupart des étudiants, surtout ceux qui ne se présentent pas en classe. Étudier dans une petite communauté soudée aura ses hauts et ses bas, sans aucun doute. Vraiment? Je ne savais pas que les étudiants qui suivent l'option française n'ont pas à passer le LSAT. Je sais de source sûre que pour le programme de médecine de l'Université d'Ottawa, les étudiants sont dispensés de passer le MCAT. C'est bon à savoir, vu que, comme vous l'avez mentionné, je vais économiser beaucoup d'argent ! Avec les quelques centaines de dollars que j'ai économisés, je vais certainement vous emmener manger des sushis ou autre chose haha ! Et c'est exactement pour cette raison que j'ai voulu poursuivre la filière française à l'Université d'Ottawa en raison de la petite taille et de la diversité du groupe. Et étant donné que je pourrais vouloir travailler pour le gouvernement du Canada, je pense que le fait d'avoir un JD français sera un avantage par rapport aux autres candidats vacants ! De plus, je suis également passionnée par l'environnement, d'où mon diplôme de premier cycle en études environnementales. C'est donc un énorme avantage de savoir que l'Université d'Ottawa offre un stage clinique en droit de l'environnement. Merci encore pour votre réponse ! Et de même ! Bonne chance dans vos études de droit et dans votre carrière !
  4. Hello All! Just wanted to give the reader an update: Since I want to practice law in Ontario, I've narrowed down my choices in order of preference (1 being the first) followed by my reason: Windsor (estimated tuition from LSAC: 20,445) Social justice-oriented, Judicial internship, environmental law clinic, IP clinic, community legal aid, NWT clerkship program, I like the campus, and I have an apartment here (aka I don't have to move all of my stuff across the province) Bora Laskin (estimated tuition from LSAC: 18,590) Focus on environmental law and indigenous law, IPC uOttawa (estimated tuition from LSAC: 19,354) French stream, Options in Aboriginal law, technology law, social justice, and environmental law Queen's U (estimated tuition from LSAC: 19,246) Prison law clinic, federal government internships, public interests internship
  5. Hi there! Thank you for your response! The schools that I've listed above, I have family/family friends living near by the school, so that would cut down living expenses by a huge amount. I have an RRSP that I plan on withdrawing funds from for when I attend law school. One of the replies by Deadpool mentioned that I should study law where I intend to practice, which I didn't think of before! That solid advice narrowed down the list by a lot.
  6. Ha, thank you for your response! Yes, I'm in my second year of undergraduate studies. Thank you for that advice! That definitely narrowed it down by a lot!
  7. Hi! Thank you for your informative response! I noticed I made a mistake about the indigenous law after I posted it but couldn't seem to edit my post. When I said UVic is the only program that offers indigenous law, I was referring to the JID (should have made that more clear, my apologizes!). I did a little more digging and found that Peter Allard offers Indingenous Legal Studies, which I'm also interested in. Oh, I didn't know Manitoba will offer French courses! Thank you for that!
  8. Hello! I'm currently in my second year at UWindsor and looking into prospective law schools. Even though I'm in my second year and will have two years - three if I decide to do my master's in environmental studies - before I start applying, I would like to do the research now and gain some insights rather than doing all of this in my fourth year or during my master's. The thing about law schools is that all of them are accredited by a law society, which means that in order for one to be accredited, they must teach the same courses (eg Constitutional, tort, contracts, etc). But the problem is that I'm stuck on which law school will help me thrive as a lawyer. Then I realized that I don't need a law degree from XYZ to be a bomb ass lawyer, I just need a law degree. So, this is where lawstudents.ca comes into play. What are your personal experiences, findings, or opinions in regard to the following schools: Windsor Law Osgoode Law Peter Allard (UBC) Dalhousie Law UAlberta Law UManitoba Law Ottawa Law Queen's Law McGill Law University of Montreal University of Victoria I'm possibly considering IP law, criminal, environmental, immigration, or bankruptcy/corporate law. I like the concept/idea of the Pro Bono Students of Canada and, to my unfortunate life, all of the above law schools are chapters of PBSC. I also like the Innocence Project, which I know most programs will have such projects. I'm also considering pursuing a French stream so that will narrow it down to McGill, Ottawa, and University of Montreal. I'm also interested in indigenous law which UVictoria is the only law program that offers indigenous law. And I'm also interested in, you guested it, social justice Oh, I'm also looking for a law program that will have a strong alumni connection whilst being somewhat affordable. So, I might cross out Osgoode lmao I'm not here to ask you which law schools I should apply to but rather would like to gain insights on your personal experiences, opinions, or whatever that the admission's office won't tell me. But if you would like to suggest a law program, please explain why! Also, I'm only applying to four or five law programs because I'd rather spend that money for my law tuition #brokelife. Thank you in advance!
