If anything just go avoid any potential liability, especially while trying to learn on the move, having the protection of a corporation would be helpful imo. 

I'm posting this to provide a little insight into people's reactions to your post and to help people browsing this forum for help - Mods, please let me know if this is considered legal advice.  

A professional corporation does not offer the same shelter to liability that you would find from other corporations formed under the CBCA or provincial corporations acts. That's why lawyers/doctors/ etc. who have PCs will still require liability insurance. And why I wrote the following in my post above: 

Quote

Be sure to look into liability and the taxation of PCs - there's a reason why a lot of juniors don't necessarily need or use one. 

(my emphasis added)

The reason for having a PC is not to shelter you from liability. As I insisted before, look into why professionals have PCs and maybe start with looking into what a "personal services business" is.

I think the above is fine. It’s an illustration of the danger of giving or taking advice on the forum by highlighting exactly how wrong that advice can be. 
 

Anyone who relies on this forum for legal advice needs their head examined anyway.

Is this medical advice? 😛

Actually, the real trick is to put "E. & O.E." at the end of all correspondence. If you do that, you can never be sued ever!

    • 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'.  
    • Hello,  I am applying to law schools this coming semester (2020 fall) and I am about to take a course where the professor does not post marks and it's too late to drop the course as it is starting on Tuesday. My goal is to take 2.0 credits (3 courses) this term so I can be able to take just 4 courses per semester on the fall and winter. My question here is because its too risky to estimate your marks and I won't be getting any grades for the course until its posted online when the course is done. Do you think if I credit no credit (pass or fail) will look bad on my application as someone who is graduating this year?  I am just asking because I rather CNR then have a B grade on my transcript , which will then lower my CGPA overall as well.  Any advice would help Thank you so much in advance !
    • You have access to the leftover. They portion out the full amount over the three years of law school, but then end result is that by the beginning of 3L you have access to the full amount. You (generally) have access to that full amount until the end of your articling year, at which point it becomes a term loan. After that, you won’t be able to borrow from it – although apparently some people negotiate it into a revolving professional line of credit, and thus have access to it on an ongoing basis.
