when are timetables typically available for us to look at? is it usually in august or what?  I'm trying to decide what kind of availability I'll be able to give to my boss. 

 

thanks!

Even though we can't really know what cohort we'll be a part of, you can go onto Bear Tracks and search for the classes. From this thread last year, we can figure that we have to take LAW 401 (foundations), 405, 410, 420, 430, 435, and 440. So you can look at the courses on Bear Tracks and see roughly when each would be. I wouldn't commit to anything recurring yet because these times might change, but hopefully this gives you a rough idea!

401

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 9-11:50 am and 2-4:50 pm

OR

(NCA Students Only)

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 5-8 pm and Fridays 9-11:50 am and 2-4:50 pm

405

Fridays 9:30-11:50 am or 2-4:20 pm

410

Mondays and Wednesdays 9:30-10:20 am or 10-10:50 am

420

Mondays and Wednesdays 8-8:50 am or 10:45-10:35 am

430

Only offered Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-9:50 am

435

Only offered Mondays and Wednesdays 2-2:50 pm

440

Only offered Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:30-11:20 am

hey thanks! didn’t realize they already had the upcoming years class times up. That has the side benefit of being able to search each prof on ratemyprof.com 😂

That's last year's!  

But I would expect 5 days per week. You take 7 classes. Foundations in the First 2 weeks which runs from about 9-5, after that it depends on what cohort you get and who the profs are. You'll be taking 6 full year classes, and are slotted into your classes automatically by the registrar's office. Note that they have some practitioners teaching 1st year, and they usually need to teach early AM or evening classes.

I saw on Beartracks that I am able to enrol in courses. Just to clarify as this thread seems to be the most related: I do NOT need to pick my own classes? A timetable will be made available? I was always unlucky with course selection in undergrad so I am very anxious about this open enrolment thing. 

I can just sit back and relax? haha

Correct, you do not need to pick your own classes. We will be assigned classes and our section. You can just sit back and relax. If you look at the classes we will be taking on BearTracks, they're all closed right now because the faculty has to manually enroll students in them. So don't worry! Sit back and relax! I'm guessing by end of July we should know our schedules!

I actually emailed them earlier and they responded with this 

We will take care of your enrollment and registration for first-year courses. We will communicate with you in the summer regarding your class schedule. Additionally, students attending law school in September 2019 will receive a monthly newsletter or email summary with information regarding attending law school, preparing yourself for law school, and other useful items such as finances and student groups. That will start circulating in mid-to-late May.
 
Have a great day,

Oh my god, that sounds amazing. Definitely makes me feel better about arriving prepared. Thanks for sharing!

    • 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.
    • Depends on the prof and time of year. Some profs are more helpful than others and some times of year they are busier than others. Some of them don't set rigid office hours but are easily available by appointment. During midterms/exams, office hours will invariably be busier than usual, but still easy to get in to. I find that the best way to have a productive conversation during office hours is to ensure I have compiled clear, narrow questions. It facilitates much more directed conversations and professors tend to be happier to help students who appear to be making efforts to learn rather than simply coming to them asking to be taught the entire course material. For example, I would not go to office hours simply asking for them to explain a topic. I would read about the topic, develop questions I had about it and go to them for clarification/discussion on specific issues I had.
