  1. Also if you haven’t gotten this offer already. If you send me a link to your post with the revised text, I’ll edit it for you (assuming no substantive changes). We will slip rule this one. 😂
  2. Sorry about your brother. That’s super shitty. This forum isn’t really intended for people to seek legal or legal adjacent advice. While your post isn’t technically seeking legal advice, I’m going to lock it and anyone that has a response for you can PM you. I will say, that for personal injury cases, it’s common for lawyers to act on contingency.
  3. I’m not positive they use the same scoring matrix that I’ve seen. I agree there’s relatively little given to overall impressions, but there are some points (maybe 15%ish) that go to presentation type things (grammar, language, persuasiveness etc). The overall approach I take with government interviews is threefold: 1) study the underlying substantive law 2) study the competencies 3) study your experience The best answer will be one where you can showcase your substantive expertise using a real life experience that also showcases the competencies.
  4. Is there any process for trying to get your admin to remove the 0 for health/compassion reasons? There might be one if you dig around.
  5. Unless you stop trying to advance your career (or have all the hookups)...you’re gonna be justanotherapplicant for so much longer.
  6. I had totally missed that change! Thanks for brining that forward.
  7. Apparently some are trying to get into class action work. Going after carriage against some big bois.
  8. Sometimes with stuff like that, I will send a follow up email that summarizes what happened:
  9. I would make sure that instructions to LA are in email.
  10. https://bccat.net/conferences/ here’s the 2020 conference. I’m looking forward to the AI in decision making discussion. I think it will be very interesting. I think BCCAT is still doing the student sponsorship. If you’re interested reach out to your admin prof/school administration.
  11. I disagree this is the purpose. It’s to allow the LSBC to say they’ve ensured basic competency in their registrants for the protection of the public. Since a lawyer can practice in any area, they can best meet this goal by covering a broad range of topics. (Especially those topics where they find the most claims and regulatory complaints.) ETA: I guess I actually agree that broadly this does constitute a “gap”. Your proposed solution In my view just doesn’t address the right gap.
  12. A bit... someone direct me to a blog post by a smart person when it’s posted. I am not reading 3000 paragraphs.
  13. BCSC and long suffering Judge Steeves released the final decision finding that there was no Charter breach. Also not super happy with Plaintiff’s counsel’s approach to evidence by the sounds of it. decision is currently PW protected but apparently circulating on Twitter. eta: the costs bill is going to wreck Cambie
  14. Architect interns aren't excluded. That internship goes on for three to five years. They seem to be able to make it work.
