Articling Leads - personal injury

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any articling leads (2019-2020) for PI in southwestern Ontario - Windsor, London, Hamilton, KW and maybe Ottawa?  Came across a few in Toronto but cost of housing is too high.

Still looking.  If you have any leads please PM me.  Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I work at a top 10 PI law firm in Barrie. When I was applying I showed up to a few firms in the area to drop off my CV personally. One of the partners at the firm called me and interviewed me personally the next day. I work here now.

Most PI specialist firms are not huge and there are not usually set dates, just individuals who apply. Try some of these firms they are all leading in the field: https://www.canadianlawyermag.com/author/alexia-kapralos/canadian-lawyers-top-10-personal-injury-boutiques-3632/

Thanks but you may have lucked out.  I called at least 10 different PI firms in Southwestern Ontario and all of them told me they are not looking for an articling student - and this was after ruling out the ones that participate in more organized recruits and hire a year in advance.  The leading firms you listed are usually the ones that have more organized hiring and typically well in advance.  The trick is to somehow find the "leftover" ones.

    • If you are truly interested in a career in family law then Nicholas Bala is all there is to say.  Foremost expert in Canada.  Take the opportunity to study under him.
    • Is that the Dudley v. Stevens case that determined that the defense of necessity was unwarranted in the case of eating a fellow crewmember to survive? I'll have to remember this case if I'm ever contemplating cannibalizing my friend on a hiking trip.
    • I took it 3 times back to back and now i'm finishing up 1L at UVic. As long as you keep improving on your scores, you should be fine June 2017 - 149 Sept 2017- 153 December 2017 - 163  
    • 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.    *Edit* Just realized someone else recommended Is Eating People Wrong, but that just shows how good it is!
    • 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.
