From reading the acceptance letter, I got the sense that there wasn't going to be a formal package - nothing like that was mentioned and they've provided all info on the website that they provide the link to. I personally was hoping to get one though...

There is a package that comes in the mail! It took about 2-3 weeks to come after I got my acceptance email (but I'm in the west coast)

 

I got my acceptance back on Jan 6, and still have not received anything in the mail -- perhaps they only send to out of province?

Congrats everyone! 

 

To echo some posts way back on page 1, I'm a current 1L and would be happy to answer any questions you might have about Queen's Law :) It is reading week after all!

I was wondering what is the probability in getting into one of the law clinics? That is to say are there a lot of opportunities to participate in them?

I was wondering what is the probability in getting into one of the law clinics? That is to say are there a lot of opportunities to participate in them?

 

As a 1L, there are two opportunities to gain clinical experience: (1) Volunteering at Queen's Legal Aid (QLA); and (2) Volunteering with the PBSC Family Law Project (it's a PBSC project, but they work out of/in conjunction with the Family Law Clinic).

 

This year, QLA took on 30 1L volunteers, and the PBSC Family Law Project took on ~10 1Ls.

 

Given the incoming class size of ~200 students, you're looking at roughly a 15% chance for QLA alone. Keep in mind, though, not everyone is interested in the clinics, and there are plenty of other worthwhile extracurriculars to get involved in.

 

Beyond 1L, there are plenty of opportunities to gain clinical experience. The Prison Law, Elder Law, Family Law, and Business Law clinics all offer a course-credit option for 2/3Ls (the application cycle for these just closed--pretty crappy timing, all things considered, but it is what it is). QLA also offers a course-credit option, "Clinical Litigation Practice" (CLP), and takes on 2/3L volunteers as well. For what it's worth, there are 22 CLP caseworkers and 28 2/3L volunteer caseworkers at QLA this year.

 

So... all this to say, there's definitely lots of opportunities to get involved with any one of the clinics, even if you don't get a spot in 1L :)

 

Hope this helps! 

 

Edit* just realized there's a better thread for this: http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/43574-ask-a-1l/ :)

Mr. Barristerselmy  I would like to get your opinion on my chances of getting in. I have a cGPA of 3.8/4 and an lsat of a 157. Do you think I have a realistic chance of getting in? thanks

    • Hey all, I was looking at the Applicant Info Bulletin 2020-2021, and I noticed I qualify under the individual consideration category as a "mature applicant". While I definitely don't feel mature, I turned 25 in March so technically I qualify. Is there any advantage to me applying under this category? I've got a self-calculated index of 74.51 (which is likely to go up when I get my fall grades), so I think I could get in regularly off the waitlist. I don't really want to write yet another personal statement, but if it means I can get early admission and possibly scholarship money that would be awesome. Thanks in advance!
    • I'm not OP but I want to weigh in: Is law school super hard? Depends on who you are and how you study. Some people find it considerably more difficult than others. There's no singular study method that works best. Personally, it hasn't been much harder than my bachelor of arts. Is their cliques? Yes. High school never ends. There are always cliques. There will be cliques in law school and there will be cliques at your future law firm. Do professors actually care? In general, yes. TRU law professors seem to care quite a bit about their students in my experience.
    • That's very subjective and I can't really answer that. It could be any number of things that deviates from the norm. Imagine the norm being applying to law school in your last year of undergrad with nothing but summer retail jobs (there's nothing wrong with retail, it's just not unique) and a few club memberships on your resume. If you're that type of person with an average GPA (70%) and an average LSAT (150), you don't really have a good shot at law school.
    • Got an in-firm from Sangra Moller a week ago in a non-OCI school, Btw would anyone be as so kind to PM about their Vancouver In-firm experience?
    • anyone hear back regarding offers from any non-OCI firms or other firms yet in Vancouver?
