I was looking for an articling position from last one year in BC, finally I got an offer this week. I have all the forms ready and signed by my principle. I have a few questions regarding my application, if anyone can help me out.
1. I am a foreign trained lawyer and completed my NCA exams back in July 2018. NCA has sent my certificate of qualification directly to the Law Society of BC at the same time. I want to know for how long does the Law Society keep the certificate handy? If they do not have the certificate accessible at the moment then I have to request NCA to resend my certificate to them again and it will take few weeks time.
2. Is the Law society still accepting new application for licensing, if yes, how are they accepting the new applications. The method that i know is to drop off my application in person to their office but according to their website they are working from home and there is no information provided on the method to send the new application. Would mailing my application to the Law Society's office be a better idea?
I have tried calling them and emailing them, but I have not received any reply yet.
