  1. Happy quarantining It's stressful choosing between law schools (5 more days!!!) - do you have any regrets after having chosen your law school? What would you have done differently? What did you think mattered that didn't end up mattering as much? (i.e., maybe you were worried about high tuition, but you now wish you went to the more expensive school- or vice versa).
  2. Thank you so much for this response!
  3. Hello! I've heard from some people that for Ontario schools bursary amounts tend to increase over the years. Does anyone have anecdotal (or otherwise) evidence of this at Queen's? Thank you!
  4. Hi there! How were the corporate law courses and clinics at uVic? Any favorites? Was there a wide enough selection of courses that were directly applicable to your job? Thank you!
  5. Hello! How competitive is the application process for clinics at uVic? Is it based on undergraduate grades and work experiences? How many applicants and how many positions? Thank you!

  7. Hi there! I'm trying to decide between Queen's and UVic- and it looks like unless I go into big law in Toronto, it's much less painful financially to go to UVic and work in the west coast. (I'm looking at the salary comparisons from zsa.com and the amount of debt I'd have to repay each month, as well as living costs in each city (Vancouver vs. Toronto). Queen's gives us a % of students that go into big law, but I don't think I found anything like that for UVic. What is the recruitment process/job search process like for those who might want to go into a big firm at UVic? How common is it for UVic students to go into big firms? How small is the market in Vancouver/Victoria? Essentially- other considerations aside, is the additional debt of Queen's worth the promise of a bigger job market in big law? Thanks
  8. Thank you for your responses! In regards to the co-op program- do large firms post in the co-op portal? or do they generally stick to the usual OCI recruitment process?
  9. Hi there! I was wondering if you had any information (anecdotal is okay too) on where UVic law students go to practice. The Vancouver job market is not as big as Toronto and BC also has UBC and TRU- is it difficult for UVic students to find placements in their 2L summer and articling? Thanks
  10. Hello! I've been learning Chinese for fun and I've taken the HSK 5 exam. I was just wondering if knowing other languages other than English has been helpful at all during your job search- do employers care/value this skill? If so, what kind of practice preferred/desired candidates who knew other languages, like Chinese or French? Thank you!
