Hey my friend that has been charged with a drug offense in Quebec , Gatineau area. Is in need of help with legal advice regarding his criminal case disclosure . He wants to know about the search warrants and the informant on the case if any of This is admissible. Plz students that want to help a friend that is representing them selves and has no real legal input on the disclosure . He is English and the disclosure and case is in French that’s were the necessary help come in thanks a lot guys
I hope everyone is taking care, staying safe, and tried to enjoy their summers as best they can despite this pandemic.
I will be applying to law school come November 1st.
I have no concrete excuses for my cGPA, though, it is a result of a C grade I received first year second semester, and another C grade I received third year second semester: both a result of group work that was awarded a group mark for all group members.
I worked at a law firm as a student throughout my undergrad starting after my first year. I have a small photography business that I have been running since 2015. I was vice president of a Pro-Bono Law club at my undergrad school, and then president of the club a year after. I have started a marketing business in January 2020 with a copyrighted application. And I am looking to volunteer starting in October with my time off, before I enter law school.
My goal schools are Western or Queens, but i will be applying to Ryerson, Ottawa, Windsor, and Osgoode (although I doubt I will get into Oz).
I wanted to turn to everyone in this forum for assistance: What are my chances of getting in?
Thank you in advance.

It is a difference of good faith, accepting a job with the intention of not starting if you are able to is actively misleading.
The corollary that makes this even clearer: imagine you were a summer student at a firm that offered you a job with the intention of finding a replacement before you started; you would understandably feel betrayed.
To me, this was the most stressful aspect of PLTC. You are given a constant stream of assignments (not graded) and assessments (graded, which you must pass) and this leaves little to no time for dedicated studying of the materials for the qualification exams until the end of the course. The most recent session (the first online PLTC session) was also 9 weeks instead of the normal 10 weeks, which left even less time for studying for the exams.
While in hindsight the course was probably easy, it was stressful to go through and the instructors constantly bringing up the statistic that on average 20-25% of the class has to re-do at least one component certainly didn't help make it less stressful.
I'm wondering what my chances are. I will probably be applying under Access because of extenuating circumstances that occured in my first year, but here are my stats:
LSAT: 149, 153, 157, 156
Good ECs, and great work experience in the two years I have been out of undergrad.
I'm also wondering if it's worth taking the LSAT again... I have taken it so many times already, but if I could get a 160 would it be worth it?
