where do the majority of law students live? 

Check the 2021 facebook group. This differs cohort to cohort, but most students gravitate towards downtown.

Does the law school use OWL like undergraduates do, or is there another system for courses?

yep, OWL.

Do I need a suit for orientation week? I know in the past there has been semi formal events. 

Do people bring guests to that?

Yes, you should have a suit. Aside from the semi formal dinner, a few years ago the school introduced some sort of professionalism ceremony that I think (from looking at the pictures) people wore business attire for.

I didn't bring a guest/my S.O. to any o-week events and I don't know of anyone who did. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure you even had the option of bringing a guest, but things might have changed over the last few years.

Would business separates work? Like dress pants and a blazer or would I feel out of place?

You would likely be out of place. Try to keep an eye out for deals before the school year starts and invest in a suit. You'll need one for networking, interviews, moots, and so on anyway.

Hi, are you sure about this? I'm a nervous 1L and I couldn't find this information anywhere. Really hope it happens tomorrow and I can stop worrying.

You can see it on OWL's calendar or you can verify by checking the recruiting emails Robyn sends out regarding when to order transcripts. 

We should have our marks sometime tomorrow if all goes well.

Do you happen to know how to access your marks? I can't seem to find them even though the email on reviewing exams came in.

I guess not all went well today. Last year they were out the same day as the grades meeting. I reckon Mysty's absence may be impacting operations a bit this year. 

Hold tight and hope for Monday.

On the right column, web academic transcript. Request a report. 

 

Go tell your classmates and be a hero.

Thank you!!! Unfortunately, only have one grade out. Hopefully they release the rest today. 

Not sure if I wanna be the bearer of bad news. Although by now the released grade is also on student centre so I'm sure everyone is aware.

They're all up now. Thankfully the single grade I was looking at for the past 24 hours was one of my worst ones. It was a humbling experience.

For those who have clinic experience. In regards to the Business Law clinic and CLS, what is the application process like and what do they look for in a candidate? I found an old post from 2010, but I imagine it may be outdated. Thanks!

    • No worries there. Most Oz students do their damned best to disassociate themselves with York whenever possible. They won't slip up. 
    • This is exactly my point on AI not being what the media says it is. The chances of lawyers getting replaced in our lifetime is pretty small.
    • I'm selling all of my Barbri materials that I used for the July 2018 exam. The materials are the same as those for the February 2019 exam (the covers of my books say July 2018/Feb 2019). I have all the materials included in the Barbri course, including the flashcards. I can also include some handouts that I printed (lecture notes, summaries, powerpoints for mini-lectures, study plan, and overviews). Everything is in good condition, as I barely highlighted or marked up any of the textbooks (except the lecture handouts, but they're useless unless they're filled out).  I'm willing to ship these wherever they need to go (we can negotiate on shipping), and I'm open to reasonable offers. PM me if you're interested
    • I won't claim I've read all the articles, but skimming the titles only puts them into the category of what I was saying before. It's buzz. And it's confusing the tool with the real work of a lawyer. If something automated actually killed thousands of parking tickets I guess that's real "law" in a way, but I can't believe it's more sophisticated than automating something simple that you can't pay a human being enough to care about doing for what it's worth. Again, there's a difference between automation and AI. I seriously don't think anyone has tried to grapple with my point about drafting. Do you realize how many people used to be employed simply to copy documents by hand? No one seriously imagines that word processing and photocopying killed a whole swath of the profession simply because students and junior lawyers don't sit all day copying contracts in longhand. The real work of this profession is creative and analytical. And that's before we even talk about the actual advocacy and human interaction. The day computers can do that, they can do damn near anything. EDIT: I've now read about the ticket-fighting "robot lawyer" and it's actually no more sophisticated than the SimpleTax program I used until recently. That is, it's a nice little choose-your-own adventure program, with the appropriate rules filled in, but to pretend it's AI is just absurd. It's no more AI than a DIY will kit.
