Hi Folks,

This news is a couple weeks old, but I thought it would be nice to share with you all!

Lakehead's Bora Laskin Faculty of Law took home the 2019 Arnup Cup, qualifying the team to represent Ontario at next month's Sopinka Cup. The winning team consists of Lakehead Law students Amanda Gallo, Austin Nix, Phaedra Olinyk and Nathan Wainwright, as well as Coach Kimberly Gagan.

For those students concerned about a lack of brand recognition associated with Lakehead in the world of law, let this stand as proof that Lakehead Law students can compete with students from even the most recognized schools in Ontario (including Queen's, and the two teams sent by Osgoode Hall). This is just the beginning!

(Full disclosure; I'm not currently a student at Bora Laskin. But, I have been admitted and intend to accept. See you all in the fall!)

It is great to see Lakehead competing with these other more established schools! Gives me hope that their IPC program is really as effective as many people claim.

    • Hi CoffeeandLaw,  That's a great idea. The CDO at my school historically has been mostly focused on providing resources for corporate/big law jobs, but contacting them can't hurt! Thank you for the advice.    I have litigation experience, but not in civil  I've definitely realized that there are many more positions for PI and such for younger lawyers. I really want to practice the field(s) I've dedicated myself to for the past few years. But if it comes to that, I guess I might have to rethink my options.    I am applying broadly in terms of geography, but I'm afraid I can't leave the province due to family commitments. Would prefer to stay in the GTA, but I've been looking for jobs in other cities across Ontario as well. You're correct, if I want to stick with government, I should peruse options in other provinces. I just don't think I will be a competitive candidate because I was born, raised, and educated here. I think they're looking for some kind of a connection with the region/province, and I have nothing to demonstrate that, haha. 
    • I believe you need to send in your final transcript after your degree is conferred as the confirmation of your graduation is not actually listed on your transcript until after convocation. If you click on the help button when you're on the transcripts part of OLSAS and scroll down to 'final transcripts' part there should be more clear information there. If anything, just call - RollMaster could be right about just requesting your transcript immediately.
    • For those of you who have written the bar, 1) Did you always find the answers in the materials? I've done some practice tests and find it hard to always find the answer in the materials - i'm tempted to just guess based on my own knowledge - is this something you did?  2) Did you use OLE's indices? the detailed table of contents? whats the best way to find answers fast?  
    • Hey,  I'm moving from BC. I found a place through Kijiji. I had just been scanning the ads regularly. I was going to rent an extra month in July just to secure a place but ended up finding one that started mid August. So my suggestion is keep an eye out there. Also avoid Marda. They were awful and rude when I spoke with them.  As for course enrollment I believe we dont have to first year. I'm under the impression we get registered by the school. I could be wrong but when I was reading the handbook for the MSW/JD program that's what I got from it. I know you can check your uwinsite and at the top where it says applicant click it should drop down and there should be a student option if your account is activated. Mine is not yet. Not sure if others are.  We will also be receiving a welcome package in the beginning of August through mail with more info I believe. 
    • Just to dispel this myth, it isn't really true. Certain fields of law and practices, absolutely. But you can definitely work in Montreal being an Anglo with limited French.
