1L Summaries

Recommended Posts

Do any upper years at uOttawa mind sharing summaries from their 1L classes?

Having trouble making connections with upper years, summaries would greatly help me manage some time (esp during first semester)

Please let me know in a PM! - I'd greatly appreciate it.

Here you go. Poor job of advertising so it seems, but the website is now running again after being on a hiatus my year. I remembered I literally had to find the google drive link to get these and I just shared it with friends of mine while most people didn't know about it. Could be that this school is unusually insular, could be that people just don't know about it.

Yeah since transferring I'm finding that summarries are much harder to come by and people are not as willing to share them. Maybe it'll change as time goes on but for now that's my impression. I'm just going to be going around and asking people in the class

    • If they do, that's an anomaly.  Full course load is five per semester, that's the norm. Each university sets their own policy for full-time status and it varies. Queen's may be more accepting than other schools of four course semesters but, technically, that isn't the standard  definition at Canadian schools for undergrad of a full course load. 
    • I do believe that Queen's considers 4 courses per semester a full course load.
    • I don't see a lot of UofC Associates or Articling Students in Toronto at all, but there's certainly Windsor grads at every large firm. I also wouldn't place my hopes on getting into Big Law in Calgary and then lateraling over either - that's a lot of steps that have to go correctly. Getting Calgary BigLaw isn't a lay-up in and of itself. I would say go to Windsor and network, get good summaries and work your butt off in 1L and try to get grades in the top quarter of your class. 
    • Bit of an odd-duck here.    B2: 78% LSAT: 157 (one write) Sask Connection: Step-father is ex-law lecturer at UofS and Queen’s Bench and I served as president of the University of Regina Student’ Union for two elected terms.    Will these connection items help??
    • hey thanks! this is a good perspective. yeah I am open to biglaw in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, but ideally would like to end up in Toronto. I know about Windsor having low placement rates, so I guess my question is whether to risk the low placement rate but be in Ontario, or risk being out of province but have the Calgary market open to me. I don't really want to stay in Calgary longer than I have to.
