If you want to live off campus at a reasonable rate you pretty much need access to a vehicle. There are the Landmark buildings which are nice but expensive.
There is residence that is fine but you are with undergrads and it can get loud - That wasnt an issue for me but it might be for some people. It is in walking distance but cooking is definitely a pain since you cant technically have hot plates but everyone had some.
There is East Village which is TRU housing but walking distance. The apartments are basic but definitely a step up from residence and its across the street from grocery stores.
Basically if you have a vehicle I would live downtown its nice to be away from campus and if you do go out on weekends its walking distance to all the bars and the arena.
R v Miller , used to illustrate that a failure to act can complete the actus reus of an offence. I always found the facts hilarious. I bursted out laughing when I first read them. They are as follows:
The defendant was a vagrant who had spent the evening drinking before returning to the property where he was squatting. He fell asleep with a lit cigarette in his hand, which started a fire. The defendant woke and, seeing the fire, took no steps to extinguish it but simply moved to sleep in a different room. Eventually the whole house caught fire, causing over £800 worth of damage. The defendant was charged with arson.
EDIT: Damn someone already beat me to it! I guess I wasn't the only one.
Im planning on applying to several national firms in both their Toronto and Vancouver offices. I have connections to both cities, however, I heard this can have an impact on whether I receive an OCI or not as it raises “red flags”. I was wondering if anyone has some input on this, specially from upper year students!
I honestly pray that some of the people on the adcoms are parents so they actually understand the determination involved in having small kids and even *applying* to law school.
I'm in the same boat though, just trying to convince at least one school to let me in 😅 Give me a chance - I can do this, I promise!! I know it!
