1L Course enrolment

Recommended Posts

I've only just realized course enrollment is open because I never received the enrollment email with information and the pdf.


I tried to email admissions to ask for the email to be resent, but they said they wouldn't after checking their system and seeing that they already sent it to my email... Despite me saying I never received it but ok nothing I can really do past that.


Can anybody share the enrollment pdf, or the contents of the email? Otherwise, can I just verify that I just needed to pick the small course for the fall semester, and the thematic in the winter semester and then the rest will be automatically populated by the admissions team?


Thanks in advance!

Yes, you only enrol in a small group for the fall, thematic for the winter. The rest will be done for you.

The email: 


Hello and welcome to the Faculty of Law, Common Law Section!

We know how eager you are to start law school in September. Here at the Common Law Student Centre, we provide support and information to all JD students regarding programs, course selection, registration, international exchanges, and more. You can learn more by visiting us in Fauteux Hall (Room 237) or via the Common Law website.
Today, we are writing to announce that it is time to plan your schedule for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year, as the enrollment period will begin at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) on Thursday, June 20, 2019.
It is important for every student to understand the requirements of their program of study and the registration process. Therefore, we recommend that you carefully read the enrollment section of our website according to your program of study to fully understand what is expected.
First-year JD students have a set curriculum and require block enrollment, meaning that you will enroll in a group of pre-determined courses. Come registration, you will only need to select two courses: 
(1) A small group course, taken in a group of approximately 18-25 students. Once registered in a small group course, you are guaranteed enrollment in a corresponding block of substantive law courses. The Common Law Student Centre will proceed with enrolling you in the rest of your block courses. We invite you to consult all the different blocks available according to your program to determine which one is best for you.
(2) A thematic course (for English JD students during the Winter term). The first-year thematic course allows English JD students to select one course from a basket of interesting options designed to broaden your perspectives on the law. 
It is your responsibility to become familiar with the registration portal and its different applications. This will become very handy as you continue into your second and third years! To access the registration portal, you will need to log into uoZone and, under Applications, click Student Centre. Once the application is launched, open the Main Menu, select the Self-Service option and click on Register. Note that there is a PDF tutorial available to explain the different features of the online Student Centre. To open the tutorial, simply go back to the Applications tab of your uoZone account and click on Tutorial (PDF) under Student Centre.
As soon as your registration is confirmed, your @uOttawa.ca email account will be activated and an email will be sent to your personal email account (Gmail, Hotmail, etc.) containing your temporary password. If you do not receive the email within 48 hours of registration, or if you have difficulty accessing it, please contact the Service Desk at 613-562-5800 ext. 6555. Once your email account is active, all Faculty of Law and University communications will be sent to this email address.
If you have questions or require assistance during the enrollment process, a member of the Common Law Student Centre will be happy to help. While we understand that registering for your first year of law school can be stressful, we expect all students to treat staff and classmates with professionalism, courtesy and respect.
We wish you the very best for the upcoming academic year and we look forward to seeing you in September!

    • I practise family law and run a paperless practice. On each file, I maintain 2 active Microsoft Word documents. I diligently update both documents whenever there is movement on a file. They help refresh my memory during calls/meetings with clients and could potentially defend a LAWPRO years down the road. When it comes to a trial, they can even help me organize my direct/cross examinations and opening/closing statements. It is worth spending half an hour each day just updating these documents for each file (non-billable of course). A Chronology Document - This document helps you keep track what happened on each file organized by date. How much detail you put into each entry depends on what happened and your "gut feelings" about vulnerabilities and concerns etc. For example:  (Imagine this is a chart because I have -100 iq when it comes to post formatting). July 5, 2020 - Client intake. Client shared suspicion of infidelity of spouse and wisdom of retaining a private investigator. Client may return to sign retainer re: begin divorce process. Concerns: Client is a stay-at-home mom who is financially vulnerable. Possible domestic violence incident. No police involvement. Provided client with domestic violence safety kit and advised client to stay with other family members. See debrief letter date JULY-05-2020 re: advice given. July 29, 2020 - Client moved out of matrimonial home with three children. Currently residing with parents in CITY by STREET/STREET. Pickup/dropoff ongoing, transition at school. Client called at 11:34 p.m. re: service of Application. Duration: 8 minutes. Advised client to remain flexible with pickup/drop off. August 8, 2020 - Application served and issued on O.P. with retaining letter advising O.P. to seek legal representation. Request to Admit to follow upon Answer. A Summary Document - although I believe that most law firm intake forms set out the basic information of each client. I like to keep everything in a single document, especially considering that clients don't always provide everything upfront (or may not realize something is important). A lot of important information I learn from my clients often come from small talks while waiting for court and pleasantries regarding the well-being of their children. You can also include a "to do" section which reminds you of important dates. This document is organized in different tables under the heading "client info," "children info," "spouse info," etc. A lot of the information here is not found on the intake forms (e.g. name of camp counselor of a child). Whenever I have a call/meeting with a client, I have both documents open to remind myself of the names of important parties, what happened recently, next steps, important date etc. When it comes to trial, I cross-reference important events in my charts with the file. File Naming Nomenclature - It helps to put some effort into how you label electronic files. Good electronic file organization helps when you are looking for something in a hurry.  Name folders properly and date each file. Add a little blurb in the title.  One of my biggest file reached 1 GB from all the financial document scans. E.g. JULY-05-2020 FORM 8 APPLICATION_Draft 1_re Childcare Issues & Property. Hope I provided you with some ideas to try.
    • Why would that be upsetting to the lawyer? What an odd thing to be upset about. 
    • Got the email a week or two ago.       cGPA: 3.6 LSAT: 155
    • Both programs are being run online as of now for the fall term, with a 'possibility of face-face learning'.
