Law Schools and summer courses

Recommended Posts

In my first semester of third year for undergrad, I am only taking 3 courses because I had to reduce my school load due to a road accident in the earlier part of the semester.

 

I wanted to make up for the courses by taking 2 summer courses, but I heard that law schools don't account for summer courses in cGPA or especially last 2.

Can anyone confirm?

My understanding is they count unless you take them from a different institution, because they'll then be seen as transfer credits.

I believe it depends on the school. I know UBC, UVIC, UofA, Calgary (except in summer directly preceding your application year), Dal, Western, and Ottawa took my summer credits. I’ve heard that queens however does not (might want to verify this yourself). Not sure for Oz. For reference, I took 2-4 courses each summer of university so I would have been pretty bagged should they all had not looked at summer courses.

edit: forgot UofT. I heard they don’t count summer courses for B3, but do count them in your cGPA obviously.

    • Just bumping this. It is so important to have at least a base knowledge of criminal law - at the very least, family practitioners should know how to read a recognizance/undertaking, know the process to vary conditions, basic evidence (Khan applications, third party record), and a basic understanding of the more common charges (assault, assault w/weapon, mischief, threats).  The intersection between family and criminal can be fairly interesting and devestating on families. 
    • The ACORN payment site notes that payment may be made by money order or by credit card (which I would really really prefer) whereas The steps for newly admitted students says: ”$500 in Canadian currency, in the form of a certified cheque or money order only, payable to “University of Toronto”. “ anyone with any experiences here who can help me out? Can I pay by credit card?
    • Thanks a lot. Is it okay if I pm you? Guys, any idea when is the earliest one can move in? I was thinking of moving in during the summer ( assuming i pay the deposit, apply for housing and register and end up being allotted).
    • Hi guys, I’m currently a 2L student and I’m curious how law firms look at the CFA program. Anyone found it helpful in securing an article? Or does it generally help in your practice?  Thanks for all the inputs!
