How much does the central university affect law schools?

Recommended Posts

lol wow

The consensus on this board is that comparing law schools qua LAW SCHOOLS is mostly pointless... But, here you are wanting to debate the merits of comparing law schools based on the reputations of their respective universities to deliver quality undergrad programs...And, are we talking all undergrad programs? Specific ones? 

It is kind of like deciding whether you want a navel orange over a mandarin orange based on the capacity of their respective gardens to grow carrots. Like, suppose garden X and garden Y both grow perfectly fine navel oranges and mandarin oranges respectively, what does it possibly matter that garden Y has a poor reputation for growing carrots?

    • Thanks for the input! The U of T ones are really throwing me off because they all seem to tell these grand stories. While I do have actually a similar story to one of those candidates, U of T is not a school I'm applying to, and the prompts for the schools I am don't really say much about what they're looking for. They seem very succinct and to the point and I don't know how much I'm supposed to let my creativity flow on these things! I mean it's law school, we aren't meant to be creative right??
    • How much can an articling student and lawyer make in Saskatoon? I can’t find any information about this. any articling students here? What is your pay? how much do you expect to make in 5 years?
    • This will become a lot clearer after first semester exams. Nearly everyone changes their strategy going into second semester. For the most part, people typically do way too much and realize doing their 120 page constitutional readings every single class did not materialize into much on the exam. On the other hand, you'll find that some of your habits did contribute to a better exam answer and you will focus more on those. Unfortunately, it's not a one-size-fits-all approach so there isn't really a magic formula to this. Some people will find doing detailed readings more helpful in building their understanding, while others will find that spending more time synthesizing the information and doing practice tests/hypotheticals is more important. To each their own.
    • I keep finding myself focusing on the literal text, rather than why I'm reading a particular case. Wrapping my head around the reasoning behind having a self-service pharmacy was more difficult than the issues re: offer/acceptance.  Yes, they were technically over the counter drugs. But they also contained codeine. If my elementary school Lil Wayne phase taught me anything, that can be some serious stuff! What really felt crazy was the signup for Student Legal Services. I feel like the average person who's frequently at odds with the law knows more about criminal law than I do. I know I can only deal with relatively minor matters and have proper supervision, but still!
