Calling all Ontario UNB students

Recommended Posts

I am an Ontario resident and I have recently been accepted to UNB Law. Does anyone know how the process works if i were to return to ON to work/article? I have a Lakehead acceptance as well, and I am torn between the two schools. Is it better to just study at an Ontario law school if i intend to practice there? 

Any feedback is much appreciated!

I think the major difference is that ON firms do not perform OCIs at UNB. They (of course) accept applications from UNB students, but UNB students need to travel to Halifax/Dalhousie and attend OCIs there during Dal's OCI week if they get interviews. I'm not sure what the situation is at Lakehead. Generally speaking, the advice is go to school where you want to work, so Lakehead may be the right choice here, notwithstanding the fact that UNB is an older law school.

    • I definitely think you should call since they've started pulling from the waitlist
    • For anyone not from the Victoria area,  what are you doing for housing?  Any areas you looking to avoid? 
    • Keep your fingers crossed. I had my interview last week and received my acceptance this morning. They seem to be pulling from the waitlist so let's hope you hear something soon. 
    • I just want to point out that applying access DOES NOT disadvantage you. If you apply access you are also automatically considered under general if your stats meet the requirements. So for the people saying you would be better off applying general, that is simply not true. You would be worse off as you would only be considered in general as opposed to both. 
    • I am so sorry. That sounds like such an incredibly frustrating position to be in and I just want you to know I feel for you and will be keeping my fingers crossed. Unfortunately, I don't really have any revolutionary advice other than try contacting your school's CDO? Even though they focus on 1L/2L/articling recruit, they have great connections with the recruiters at various firms. It can never hurt to let them know that you're looking for an opportunity.
