Moncton's reputation outside NB

Recommended Posts

Has anyone on here graduated from Moncton's Ecole de droit and found employment out of province? If so, could you please share your experience? Was the school's career development office of much help?

There are a couple of Moncton grads in my jurisdiction. They had local connections (from here). One says they were still asked about it (why NB when Ottawa offers a French common law program) with some employers, and others didn't care. No one bothers them now that they have been working.

Employers know that Moncton has lower entrance stats and does not require the LSAT. Depending on where you are applying, they may not have even heard of it (does Western Canada know that Moncton has a law school?). YMMV. In the end, it's a Canadian law school, teaches you Canadian law and I know of highly competent lawyers that have graduated from there.

The Career development office is likely trying to help place students where their mandate is - serving altantic canada's French population and especially within New Brunswick (and I guess with the Halifax recruit?). I am not too sure if they are helping students with the Toronto recruit if that is what you wanted to do. FWIW, one of my colleagues who graduated from Moncton ended up in Toronto for a spell but all through his own networking.

Do some searches via LinkedIn and see where Moncton grads end up. Try to see if there are any in the area that you hope to eventually enter.

Excellent feedback. Going by past threads on here it appears that they also have a very strict marking system compared to some better known schools which may make them a less attractive option. Having said that their tuition is very low (8k) v UNB's (12k) or even Ottawa's (20k). Which jurisdiction are you in?

    • My original thoughts were that I would be staying at home and doing the online learning instead of moving to Kingston. I tend to err on the side of caution and I'm just not sure if I want to risk in person classes yet. Many of those close to me are higher risk, so that probably played a large part in my initial decision.   This is really interesting and it makes me wonder if my original decision is really the right one to make. If I moved to Kingston, I would theoretically be away from my higher risk family (barring visits, which might not even be a good idea). Me staying at home would carry the benefits of saving a year of rent money (a big plus, imo) and potentially being safer in terms of the virus. I should note that even I'm not yet a member of this Facebook group, so there may be a larger population of students who plan to stay home that aren't reflected in this survey. I do wonder if I would miss out on part of the experience though, but if it's only going to be a "partial" experience to begin with, I'm not sure if I can justify the extra rent costs (on top of tuition) along with the potentially extra virus risk. I just hope I wouldn't be disadvantaged in any way compared to the rest of the class. I really do hope that Queen's will be able to maintain an even footing for those who stay at home and those who can make it in person. I know Queen's intends to offer full online learning, but maybe someone with more experience/ or who is already enrolled at Queen's can weigh in on the potential pros/cons of the in person experience vs. the hypothetical online experience that we're all being faced with right now.
    • Hi all, I was waitlisted this cycle and recently went to check the status of my application. I am unable to log in because the site tries to direct me through an @uwindsor.ca email address made with my name which I don't have the password for and have never seen before. I'm planning on sending an email out on Monday just to see what's going on but figured I'd check to see if anyone else is currently experiencing the same thing. Perhaps it's just an issue stemming from a new site update or something. Thanks in advance!   
    • No, marks over 90% require special permission, but marks up to 90% can be awarded without permission.
    • Isn't the max at Allard 90% anyways? And even then, the prof will need special permission or file some kind of paperwork. I know people who got 90s.
    • There was a poll done on the Queen's law class of 2023 Facebook page a little over a month ago. Out of 85 votes, 81 people indicated that they would move to Kingston while 4 indicated that they would remain at home. Assuming nothing has changed it would seem that the majority of students are looking to move to Kingston in the fall, including myself. Also, I need roommates so y'all should slide into my DMs.
