Anyone's heading to UK (London ) to start law school in September ??

Recommended Posts

Hey guys , is anyone here who'll be moving to UK for law school starting September 2020 ? What are your thoughts on current covid-19 situation¬†ūüėí¬†?? I've heard that UK schools might have online classes until January 2021 . Also I'm wondering to know if¬†any of you has applied for line of credit or OSAP for non-Canadian law schools ? I'd like to know about the process and other financial options to consider , would be great to hear your thoughts and opinions :)¬†

Thanks

Which school are you going to? Is it a traditional bricks and mortar school? 

I'm asking because I don't think foreign, online degrees are recognized in Canada, and if it looks like your law schooling will be online for the foreseeable future, then you should dive into the implications of that before attending, IMHO. 

If it's a reputable institution, and the plan isn't for the whole degree to be online, then it may not be such an issue...but really I don't know, but it's something I'd be looking to if I were you.

I have friends currently going to school in the UK and they said schools should be open for fall 2020.

A few schools are doing online for the fall. And the NCA just updated their rules where they say they'll allow up to 50% of the time spent doing the program as online. So if you have a two year program they'll allow up to a year of it being online.

I went to York in the UK and just finished. They will be having classes both online and in person (at least for the 1st semester) and it is up to the students to decide which is better for them. It is not compulsory to attend the in person classes*

Regarding OSAP, yes you can apply and get either a grant or a loan depending on your preference.

Hope that helps! :)

    • a. You should have or will receive soon an email that has the links, but basically, for the exam itself you will need access to the LawHub site (you can find it off LSAC's site) and ProctorU. You can check all your technical requirements on ProctorU once¬†LSAC has¬†sent you an email with your username and password. Anything you need for the test (ex. ID) is also listed on the LSAC site. b. LawHub has a couple practice exams that will be in the exact same format as the real one. This is the site you'll take the actual exam on, ProctorU is just for security.¬† c. You can do Writing up to a week earlier than your actual test, and then you have a window of a year afterward¬†to do it. But you need it on file to apply for schools and it takes 2 - 3¬†weeks to process. Your LSAC account has a practice Writing space to use (the "Get Acquainted" button). You'll need to download a different security software than the one used for the exam. (EDIT: Lots of people have trouble getting the Writing software to work, so don't panic if it won't open for you on the first try. You can also redo Writing without needing to redo the LSAT.)
    • Hi, For all of you guys who have already taken the test, I have a couple of questions in relation to LSAT Flex (I am registered to take it in August) a. What are the steps that I need to take in order to be ready for taking LSAT Flex (i.e. what software to download,¬† what documents to prepare, is there a¬†web connection that I can/need to test, is there a way to check and certify that I am ready to take the test from a technical perspective, etc.) b.¬†Is there a way to take a "fake"¬†LSAT flex under real-like exam conditions (including all the steps that I need to undertake at a.)? c. When can/should I write the LSAT writing test, before or after taking LSAT Flex? Is it the same setup like for the LSAT Flex? Will I write my writing sample on a computer in a special editor or in an editor of my choosing (i.e. MS Word)? If it is a special editor, is there a way to get acquainted with this editor, does it have spell check and formatting (or is it more like Notepad)? I would not want to have any surprises/scramble to install stuff on my computer on exam day, if at all possible.¬†¬† Thanks a bunch!
    • For what it‚Äôs worth,¬†I interviewed at a mid size municipality outside the GTA¬†last year as a 5 year call. The questions were quite¬†general if I recall: ¬†‚Äúdescribe a situation where you‚ÄĚ type stuff¬†and mostly¬†not substantive in nature. Knowledge¬†of municipal or planning wasn‚Äôt¬†a large factor in their hiring decision¬†but¬†they did ask some basic questions to get an idea of your level of knowledge. ¬† ¬†
    • I was accepted with stats almost identical to yours (3.7 cGPA [3.72 with final winter term marks] and 158 LSAT). Though I was not waitlisted, I recieved my offer of admission later in the cycle during the last large wave of acceptances. Take care when preparing your personal statement and sketch, as well as when selecting those who will write your reference letters and you will have a legitimate shot at an offer from Osgoode- especially if you are able to improve your LSAT a few percentile points.¬†
    • Holy smokes, that's very intense. You should be very proud of yourself. 167 is an amazing score! Did Mike Kim's Trainer help you?
