No articling positions for me either plus a few classmates still haven't found anything. But then I'm no longer actively looking since already got other job offers and better alternatives.

In what areas? Can Pm if want

Government. The discussion is in the "Deciding not to article?" thread.

Just secured my articling position today. It feels like a massive weight has been lifted off my back. 

Best of luck to those still looking.

Anyone still looking for an articling position for 2018/2019: Here is a job posting I found for an articling job in mental health law:

"Anita Szigeti Advocates is considering applications for a 2018/2019 articling student.  It’s a barely paid position but we do amazing work for clients in the civil and criminal mental health systems. The position would begin at the end of August this year and will involve working with Anita Szigeti as principal.

This position will provide a motivated student with a demonstrated interest in mental health law ample opportunities to do real legal work. If you are interested in this position, please send along your cover letter, resume, transcripts, and a writing sample by close of business on July 19th. Letters of reference will also be considered.

Please send applications to [email protected] with a copy to [email protected]"

 

Edit: I've got no affiliation to this job - just found it on FB and thought some people may be interested.

    • 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.
