transfer question about Paralegal to LLB, need help.

Recommended Posts

hi, i was enrolled by Seneca and will begin to study paralegal in May 2020 with length of 13 months.

After graduation with this major, I would like to continue to study Bachelor of Law in the university. But I dont find the proper information about transfer from Seneca to University, I have surfed website of York University or University of Toronto, but I cant find Bachelor of Law program or transfer information.

Is it possible for me to study Bachelor of Law in any universities in Ontario of Canada? of course, in a short time with transfer paralegal program. 

thank you.

You essentially need an undergraduate degree before going to law school. There are rarer exceptions (civil law schools only require Cegep, some law schools only require a couple of years of undergrad work, mature entry,etc.). You're not jumping from a college diploma to law school. You would do Seneca to Undergrad to Law school

I don't think anybody in Ontario still gives out an LLB, but an LLB and a JD are functionally the same thing. Both are professional degrees (like medicine, dentistry, etc), and both will require a traditional undergraduate degree first. A Bachelor of Laws is not an undergraduate degree. It sounds like it is an undergraduate degree, but it is a professional degree.

On your current path, you are looking at 13 months of college, 4 years of undergraduate studies at a university, 3 years of law school (LLB or JD), and then one year of an apprenticeship (articling or clerking) to become a licensed lawyer with the Law Society.

Paralegal studies will not help you become a lawyer - if you want to be a lawyer, you should attend a university and complete an undergraduate degree.

    • I guess just to make this more generic, I just wanted to know if you have accepted people with similar stats to a CGPA OF 3.66 and an LSAT score of 157, assuming all the other elements exceed expectations. What are the chances of getting into Osgoode with a score that is a 157-159
    • Congrats if you have a job this summer! For those without jobs or postponed jobs, how are you planning on being productive this summer?  So far, I've been looking at online courses in business and have a long reading list. 
    • Can't say I'm complaining about the fact that I can just roll out of bed and go to class   But yeah, it's difficult to focus at home. I never studied at home before this.
    • Haha I am also very concerned about Ryerson (I think at this point that is out of the question now) - I just wanted to know what everyone's insight were for all three!
    • Profs are trying their best but the pedagogical style of law school, specifically the watered-down Socrative method of Canadian schools, doesn't translate well to online classes. My profs that use Zoom-equivalents are less inclined to cold call because of the awkwardness of the platform and not wanting to put people out, but the result is a very awkward minute of silence every time they ask a question. Most of us are disengaged and anxious as there is still a petition circling to switch from optional P/F to mandatory P/F, which is a cloud hanging over everyone for one reason or the other. Plus me and my close friends in 1L have all had our summer jobs revoked in one way or another or delayed, so the stress of finding a summer job now is taking primacy over revising. I've moved home to another province in the interim, which has been an adjustment period in and of itself as it's the first time I've lived with my family in nearly a decade. Safe to say there are some growing pains as we all re-adjust.  TLDR: it's weird as hell and even with all the time in the world I'm 100% less productive, absorptive and frankly interested.  😀
