Do firms typically send out all the itc's in one big batch or is there still potential to hear from some of the firms listed above?

Is there a better chance at landing an articling spot through an articling interview than getting an interview through OCIs?

My guess is that it is the same as firms likely offer a similar amount of interviews per spot

In my opinion, it is more difficult than OCIs because there are fewer spots overall. A firm may interview the same number of candidates, but hire far fewer in the process. Many of the boutiques, in particular, can interview up to 50 candidates for 1-2 spots.

Sure a firm may or can interview the same number of students, but are you aware of they actually do? 

 

I struggle to see any utility in interviewing 50 students for one spot

Even for articling? That seems a bit excessive. I thought it would be more similar to the numbers of in firms handed out after OCIs. But I know nothing about the recruitment process.

Heard through a friend (therefore cannot guarantee the accuracy) that McCarthy's and Sangra sent out ITC this morning. Also, Alexander Holburn has started to send out ITC as of this morning.

    • 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.
