Is being an Indigenous applicant an advantage or a disadvantage in corporate law?

The affirmative action is taking the steps required to remove the bias that was previously present, which disadvantaged minority groups. Removing that bias thus increases chances for diverse candidates, favouring them more. 

What you're describing is not affirmative action. This is more akin to equal opportunity.

OP, I agree with ghalm and deadpool.

Odd whow some are trying to start a debate about affirmative action. Affirmative action is not a policy in Canada.

To anyone in this thread thinking things like "oh, I never see anything racist", or "oh, I never see anyone being othered" -- you should consider the possibility that you might not experience or notice these things, despite them happening. That kind of attitude is reminscient of the men -- in every industry -- that question and doubt the plague of sexual assaults and sexual harassment against women in their industry, because "if it happened they would have heard about it."

    • wait sorry if this isn't relevant but Queen's averages LSAT scores now??? I thought they only looked at the highest...
    • I re-wrote my LSAT in January, was PT'ing mid-160's before writing so definitely hoping I managed to do the same on test day. I'm starting to get nervous as there has been no movement on my application (i.e. still not in queue). 
    • dear @QuincyWagstaff i apologize for being such a confused individual.  legal aid is funded by the gov, and they don't have a lot of $ right now, so i presumed getting this kind of gig would be hard. this is what i meant.    thank you for your comment 
    • https://www.legalaid.on.ca https://www.attorneygeneral.jus.gov.on.ca/english/ Legal Aid Ontario and Ministry of the Attorney General are two separate entities. You can read more about their individual mandates here.  There aren't too many social justice opportunities for law students and new lawyers. But there are still some non-profits hiring and many private practice lawyers doing pro bono work.  Your GPA is great. Law schools focus on undergrad grades so you're fine. Kill the LSAT and you'll have your pick of the litter. Good luck!
