    Life After the SCC

    off the top of my head I can think of 6 former clerk I know 4 contemporary and 2 sr lawyers 1 Legal Aid lawyer(criminal and appeals) 1 Big Firm Small market lawyer 1 Crown Counsel 1 Human Rights commissoer 1 Litigation lawyer (Smaller specialized firm) 1 large (for the industry) Criminal Defence As a former clerk you can do whatever you want pretty much. What area interest you ? firm does that work ? do this say send a CV if interested ? For exsample if you want to do Aboriginal send JFK a CV. Want to do a criminal? Peck or Greenspan . The only places that may be hard is BigLaw but only because of their way of hiring (OCIs) . As a furture, current or former clerk you can cold call these places

    Disclosure of Health Issues

    Yes check and disclose if needed. The Law Society can’t really do too much to you for having a disability if it can be managed but can for not being forcoming or doing what you need to manage it. I had issues with my admission do to my disability (not metal health ) feel free to pm me. Also if you are just starting law school do something I didn’t do talk with disability accommodation people at the law school

    Passive Income For Lawyers

    Here the thing with criminal law sometimes you have time to do the “passive” things some weeks you will work under 40 hours but the next week could be a five day trial and bang it’s 100 hours just dealing with that. Family is an area that a lot of Criminal Lawyer use to “pay the bills” and there are a lot of passive income in that

    First Jury Trial

    Thank you so much for this . I just ran my first Jury Trial and found this very helpful . I just finished mine last night with the Jury coning back just as the Judge was to order them to the hotel for the night with a not Guilty verdict (crown asked for the jury to be polled don’t know if that is normal ?)

    Law school entry

    The short answer is the charge will not impact admission to law school, however, there are character and fitness requirements for bar admission. The Bar admission question would likely get into legal advice and no one here can answer if OP wishes an answer they can contact their Law Society or a lawyer licenced in their jurisdiction
  13. How does your Score breakdown? that can be a big issue

    Environmental Law Centre clinic

    Me too. But it was a few years ago (4)
  15. I agree if you have the time to focus on the LSAT do so! your GPA is stellar and a better LSAT will open up many doors. Even if you are only able to fo up a few points too. That said you will likely get in somewhere with that combo but it seems to me you are leaving points on the table. One more question how are your practice test and how are you studying ?
