LLM in Canada

Very interesting. A student in the GPLLM told me the class size this year was around 80 people. I never knew that the LLM at Osgoode was so large. At Orientation last year, we were told there were under 100 people in the program, but obviously the stats online say otherwise. Thank you for your insights!

 

It's possible. I know the LLM program is smaller at 20-30 students and my source is directly from a UK law grad that did this program. I imagine the GPLLM program is larger but can't be anywhere close to Osgoode LLM's numbers.

Thanks a ton, this has been really insightful.

Just one more thing, so if I had to choose between two ways of going about getting done with my accreditation, that are: 

Get enrolled in an LLM program that helps me fulfill my NCA requirements and then find an articling position through the career services provided by said law school and the networking I do during the course of the LLM program. 

OR

Just complete my NCA exams and enroll into the LPP program and hope for the best. 

I'm only 23, so age is on my side. I'm willing to struggle and work really hard to get to a decent job over a prolonged time period, if need be. 

What according to you would be the better way to go about it? 

THANKS A TON, again!

 

@Deadpool thanks for the information! So considering all that you said, which amongst the two would be the better pick in that case?

According to the GPLLM website, there are 88 students for the Class of 2019.

I would recommend reaching out to alumni from your program who are practicing in Canada, and find out how they did it.

    • How do you handle losing cases? Do you get better over time at trying to keep it in perspective, and learning for next time? Is there any way to shut off the spiral of self-doubt?  It’s one thing to acknowledge that every court application is a calculated risk, and that you weigh the pros and cons with the client in advance, and that you’ve decided to take your chances. At some level, though, you believed that the outcome would come out in your favour (especially as the Plaintiff), otherwise you would have accepted a settlement. The rumination on “maybe I should have said this” or “maybe I should have told the client that” or “maybe I should have accepted a settlement” or “maybe if I were a better/smarter/more experienced/more confident lawyer this would have gone differently” or “maybe I just fuck up the lives of people who trust me” keeps me up for weeks and the impact of any losses outweighs 100x the impact of any wins. 
    • This is strictly anecdotal but I know of at least 1 2L in the past year who was a BC transfer. 
    • On test day, I was under so much pressure that my brain went on auto-pilot and my ability to methodically break down each question went out the window, even though I'd spent hundreds of hours studying similar questions at home. If your goal is to start law school in 2020, I think it'd be well worth it for you to experience that pressure before the do-or-die January exam.
