Are we called to the Bar the following year after the Bar exam?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I apologize if this is a very obvious question but I couldn't find the answer on the Law Society website - is the call to the bar the June after you write your bar exams? I.e.: if I am graduating law school this year (2019) and writing my Bar in June, will I be called to the Bar the following June? This year's dates are found here: https://lso.ca/getdoc/fd54c830-13c3-40aa-99f9-a9f39c4b2261/call-to-the-bar-dates,-times-and-locations

It depends on when you complete your articling and pass your exams. If you pass both exams in 2019 and finish articling in 2020 before the June call to the Bar, then yes, you'll be called in June 2020.

As long as you pass both exams by March 2020 and start your articles by the cut off date this summer, then yes, you would be eligible to be called in June 2020.
