Course enrollment for 1L

Recommended Posts

Idk if anything changed due to covid, but 1L is a standardized timetable, you will be enrolled by administration and given your schedule. 

This is typically the case at every law school

Oh okay, sounds good. When i checked on TRU's website it said registration is available on June 23, but i wasn't able to enrol in anything. So do they just email you the schedule?

Yeah they should be emailing you your schedule before September. The June 23 registration was for upper year students.

Does that mean there's only 1 time slot/section date for each 1L course?

I don't entirely understand the phrasing of this question, so I'll give you an answer for what I think you're asking.

There are 2 1L sections (Section 1 and Section 2). That means there are two sections of each 1L course. Let's say on Monday Section 1 has torts then contracts, Section 2 might have contracts then torts.

In 1L I was in Section 2. Here's what my schedule looked like:

    • Yea my bad majority was the wrong term to use. However, if the rest of the 1L class responded I do think it is likely that the majority consensus would still be in favour of moving to Kingston. 
    • Almost everyone in the group was marked as having "seen" the post (~220 people) but only 85 responded, so in line with what @ChiasticWalrus said, there are definitely many students not reflected in the poll. Maybe the majority of people are still undecided, and/or people were reluctant to respond that they were staying home because so few others did so? I know I'm still not fully sure what I'm going to do yet given the unpredictable nature of the virus
    • Thanks for chiming in, @Twenty. It's reassuring to hear that someone else had the exact same train of thought that I did. I also see the option to stay home as a unique opportunity instead of as an outright negative. I appreciate the insight regarding studying as well. I'm glad to hear that a good deal of success boils down to independent study and that most other "techniques for success" are still possible through online means. I've always sort of favoured that method myself, so I'm definetely feeling much better about staying home. All the best to you in the upcoming year.
    • This is actually really interesting. Do you know if the numbers are similar for 2Ls/3Ls? My blind guess is that a larger proportion of upper years are willing to remain at home (though I would not be surprised if the majority still prefer in-person). The reasoning is that 0Ls/1Ls are super keen to start law school and be on campus, while seniors are less so.  @ChiasticWalrus I'm not a Queen's student (I'm an incoming 2L at another ON school), but a reason why I opted to take online classes was because if there is a second wave, everything will move online anyways. I've experienced both in-person and remote law school classes, did the cost-benefit analysis, and felt more comfortable staying with my parents. In some regards, I saw the option of taking classes online and staying at home as an opportunity I should not pass up (for both health and financial reasons).   In terms of being (academically) disadvantaged, studying in law school is such an independent process (i.e. learning how to read, analyze, and apply case law is something you learn by yourself) that as long as you keep up with (most of) your readings, obtain/create good outlines, read Getting to Maybe before finals, give yourself enough time to do practice questions and analyze sample answers (I found it really helpful to do practice finals with classmates and discuss our answers - these can be done online), I don't think you will be at a disadvantage. In-person lectures are great because you can have interesting class discussions, but based on my first semester of law school, there was no correlation between how engaging a class was and the grade I got for that class. 
    • This does help, thank you! I can't afford 7sage right now, but I'll keep it in mind for the future. I'll also take a look at Manhattan. Much appreciated.
