Hi I’m an anglophone student and I was accepted! I passed the tfi exam in January but I was called to complete a written exam given by udem. I was accepted 2 weeks ago! So I don’t think they are waiting on the tfi to accept or refuse candidates 

Hi! I was just wondering being an anglophone, how did you find the test? Is it very hard? I come from a background of 1/2 french speaking family but always went to english school.

I never studied in french before and completed my undergrad at McGill and Master' at Queens . My writing french is not the best as i was never schooled in french. On the other hand, my oral french and comprehension is pretty good as  I have been living in Montreal my whole life. It's an easy exam  if you are able to read and comprehend texts in french and recognize basic spelling mistakes you should be fine. I got a really good grade yet, i wouldn't consider myself as being very good in french. If i were you i would buy the TFI textbook which has examples and is very similar to the exam. Secondly, try reading books in french or the newspaper to recognize how words are written and used. if you prepare and follow the advice above i think ou should be fine.

This is good to know. I read it's a Sec 5 level of comprehension and the practice questions are pretty easy but I can't find a full practice test or the guide in a downloadable pdf online. I did however find some great practice questions from a free French app called Nomad Education.

Je viens davoir un solde!! Candidat de certificat 3.94 

Allo! Félicitations! Je suis inscrite au certificat pour l'automne. J'ai reçu beaucoup de critique parce qu'on m'a toujours dit que le certificat n'est pas une bonne option. J'aimerais avoir ton opinion là-dessus si c'est possible. Aussi, aurais-tu des suggestions des cours à prendre pour avoir la meilleure note possible? Merci :)

Allô ! J'ai une question... Droit est mon 2e choix à l'udem. J'attends pour mon premier choix également qui va sortir en mai. J'ai une cote bien plus élevée que la majorité d'entre vous (4.18/4.3) et je n'ai reçu aucune nouvelle pour droit (mon 2e choix)... je ne comprends pas trop pourquoi je serais acceptée après des gens avec des notes plus basses.... (Je ne veux pas offenser personne right ahahhahah, je suis curieuse....). L'an passé j'avais été acceptée, j'ai réappliqué cette année avec une cote encore plus forte...

    • 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'.
