I am an undergraduate law student in India who is looking to immigrate to Canada. After doing a fair bit of research, I have come to the conclusion that foreign undergraduate degrees are not considered equivalent in terms of quality to a Canadian JD by employers in Canada, for the simple reason that many Canadians go that route because it is easier to get into common law programmes abroad than to get into a JD programme within Canada itself. That, plus the fact that I would be in my early 20s upon graduation makes me inclined towards pursuing a Canadian JD instead of simply writing the NCA exam. Any advice would be appreciated! Please note that I have no connections into the Canadian legal market and I would not be stretched financially by pursuing a JD. Good career outcomes and an understanding of the Canadian legal system are my most important priorities. Cheers!
I am an international student accepted to U of T. I intend to accept the offer but I am still waiting on decisions from the US so I might withdraw my acceptance in the coming weeks. I was not given the option to "provisionally" accept the offer, only to firmly accept or deny. I am wondering if this is because I am an international student? Also, if I accept, is this a binding decision or can I always rescind? I understand that I will have to pay a deposit by 5/1.
