A few judges at the Federal Court were conducting interviews yesterday in Toronto. Heard through the grapevine that at least one FCA justice (no idea who) had extended offers for interviews, but that it was likely other justices would only begin sending out offers after the SCC process wrapped up.

FC and FCA judges have been sending out offers for interviews since first week in feb, but apperently for FC, process could go as late as May or June because of the "hierarchy of hiring" (according to Madame Justice McVeigh at the FC).

Best of luck everyone!

Has anyone gotten a confirmation of receipt of the writing sample from the SCC yet? 

I have not. Its past 24 hours. I wouldn't think too much of it but I did send the recommended follow up email.

Would anyone who has interviewed with Justices Abella or Rowe or the SCC committee be willing to lend some advice on how to prepare and what to expect?

Is anybody able to offer insight into what interviews for the ONSC look like/ how to prepare? (specifically Newmarket and London)

I interviewed in Central East (Newmarket) last year.  It was a fairly standard interview, with the Counsel & Manager of Legal Research asking typical interview-style questions and the judges being more conversational.  I would suggest doing your research on the judges' backgrounds and preparing for a couple situational questions (ie. What do you do if a lawyer comes up to you in the hallway during jury selection and starts complaining about how the judge is handling the matter?).  If you are interested in speaking more specifically about the interview, you can PM me.

Been told in interview that I was supposed to hear back today but haven't heard back yet.

Same! I'll let you know if I here anything. I think that realistically they will call next week because they have to wait for SCC offers to go out first.

    • In firms are offered to all students (OCI school or not) at the same time on call day and take place during the proscribed interview week. And because I’m sure someone is wondering, those who did OCIs don’t have any kind of leg up over those that are interviewed for the first time in firm - once you’re in the door for the in firm you’re on the same footing. You just got there by different routes.
    • Hey all, Was hoping for some input on this as I've seen contradictory things and could use some advice. I've lived in Ontario my whole life and for various reasons am going almost certainly going to want to practice in Ontario after I finish schooling. I am however sick and tired of this place, and would love to spend the three years of law school in the glorious place that is British Columbia. I'm 99% sure I have the grades/lsat to get into UBC, but is it advisable to go to school across the country from where I plan to practice? I luckily have some sort of network here in Ontario already (Friend's family has a close relationship with a firm that operates in the exact field of law I'll likely be practicing in) but I'd rather not rely on that and would like some input. Thanks in advance, sorry if this topic has been beaten to death but I'm either a moron or searching things is kinda hard here.  .
    • Hey guys! so unfortunately I was rejected to the schools I applied to for sept 2019 and will be re-applying. I am wondering if in my personal statement I should mention that I applied last year and what I have been doing since my last application that makes me different. Is it worth mentioning or would it be a red flag for admissions to read a personal statement that says I’ve already been rejected prior. Any info on this will help! Thanks guys!
    • Hi everyone, Today I have been opening up/ getting ready to open applications in 6 Canadian Law Schools, UVIC being one of them. I don't know why I expected there to be a place where they would ask for a resume/CV from me. But so far I haven't really seen such places on the applications I have opened. Is this normal? If so, do schools typically just want me to include all extra curricular/ achievements in my personal statement?  Don't know anyone else applying for Law school so any input is appreciated.  If needed for reference I am applying to UVIC, UBC, U of A, U of C, TRU, U of Sask. 
    • Thanks so much for the reply! That's good to know.
