Apologies if this has been asked, but I have been accepted to both schools and was wondering whether it is wiser to attend TRU or U of A?
I am a BC resident and want to practice law in BC. As of now I'm leaning towards family and/or corporate law, however, I am going into law school with an open mind and seeing what interests me the most.
I'm leaning towards U of A given lower tuition (~$7000 difference/year), lower cost of living, law school reputation, and established senior network. But, a part of me is considering TRU because my family lives here and it'll be easier to network with firms and build relationships with others who will also be practicing in the same province as me.
I've read on the forum that you should try to go to school in the province you want to practice. So I'm afraid that by attending U of A it may hinder or put me at a disadvantage for obtaining an articling position in BC? Not sure how true that holds, but am curious to hear what others have to say.
