  1. Hi guys, I'm trying to decide between going to UOttawa orUBC. Here's my situation: 1. I'm from Ottawa and am currently finishing my undergrad here. 2. I've dreamed of moving to BC for years. 3. I'd like to practice either aboriginal law, criminal prosecution, or labour and employment law (as of rn). 4. I have the grades and LSAT to get into both. 5. If BC doesn't suit me, I'd move back to Ottawa. 6. If I were to live in Ottawa I'd like to work for the DOJ. One question I have is how hard and fast the "study where you want to practice" rule is? How difficult would it be for a UBC graduate to get a job in Ottawa and vice versa for UOttawa in Vancouver?
  2. I was just wondering what the indigenous/non-indigenous split was on this post.
  3. Hi ladies and gents, Just as a way to pass the time, I was wondering what area of law you practice in and why? What drew you to it? What's your favourite/least favourite parts of your job? Hoping you're all staying well!
  4. Hi folks, I already posted this in the general discussion thread, but that didn’t seem the right place for it, so here we are. I'm applying to both UVic and UBC come next cycle and I'd be lucky to get accepted to either school. That being said I'm leaning more towards UBC for location (proximity to vancouver firms and lifestyle). UVIc's coop program is appealing though. So my main question is whether co-op at UVic gives students a substantial edge over others in the job market. Additionally, for those of you who have done law coop before, what sorts of jobs did you work? Also, does UBC offer any similar career development opportunities -- e.g. job boards? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

  6. Thank you. I’ve been feeling much healthier and think I can handle it or at least fail valiantly.
  7. Can I ask what a term full of Ws means?
  8. Hi folks, I want quite desperately to go to UBC. On paper my stats are very good— LSAT of 166 and GPA of 3.94/4.0. There’s only one catch, for health reasons I’ve done all of my semesters so far with 4 courses, save for one where I did 3. Will this screw me?
