What Counts as a Sask Connection?

Recommended Posts

I am based in Alberta but help out with my family business that is heavily invested in Saskatchewan. Would that be considered a connection?

Straight from the UofS Law website:

"The committee gives a slight preference to applicants with a Saskatchewan connection or residents of the Yukon, Northwest and Nunavut Territories, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador (these being provinces or territories with no law college).

For applicants with a Saskatchewan connection, indicate on your application if your siblings are currently attending the University of Saskatchewan, or if your parents, siblings or grandparents have attended the University of Saskatchewan College of Law. Indicate if you are a former resident of Saskatchewan, and if you attended elementary and/or high school in Saskatchewan. If you consider that you have another type of connection with Saskatchewan, for example, a spouse currently attending the University of Saskatchewan, indicate this on the application form. If there is insufficient space on the application form, provide further details in your personal statement."

So, if you feel you're connection fits into this "other type of connection with Saskatchewan" then I hope you mentioned it explicitly. On the application it does, if I recall correctly, ask if your parents or fam are alumni of uSask law or the UofS. My two cents - I think the things they feel are "connections" are family alumni, Sask residents, or former residents with roots here.

My understanding is the sask connection is to ensure graduates stay in Sask to work after graduation. So, if you wanted to work the family business in Sask that would count. Hope this helps

    • Also a 0L and looking to do the same thing so these are the two (more relevant to the law books) that I have found. The first is a really interesting one called "Is Eating People Wrong?" Its written by Allan Hutchinson (also a current or former Osgoode Prof) and it goes over some really notable legal cases from across the world that helped shape Common Law (Like Brown v Board of Ed. etc.) . Most of the cases are super weird (like the first one discussed, which influenced the title) and theres a bit of legal analysis thats included on them but not in a way that I'd say would impact you negatively like pre-reading textbooks would.  One I just ordered is "Women in Criminal Justice: True Cases By and About Canadian Women and the Law" which again would include interesting info, and likely some legal jargon to help familiarize yourself with the language, but I'm assuming also would not negatively impact your studies. 
    • I'm still waiting, been "under evaluation" since December. I have a 3.25, 3.73, 164 LSAT and an MA. This is my second cycle applying to Ottawa in the Access category. I was waitlisted last year with a much lower LSAT score. Anyone else still waiting in Access? I hope to be at least waitlisted with a more favourable number this year. I have already provisionally accepted UNB so it's not the end of the world if I don't get in, but I'd like to go to UOttawa or Queens over UNB if I had the option. I called an admissions officer last week and they said they had a lot of Access applications this year, and they didn't have the majority of files finalized until after January, so there may be a bit of a delay.
