2021-2022 Toronto Articling ITCs

Recommended Posts

As someone who is almost certainly not getting a job tonight, I just want to say a couple of words to try and cheer everyone up. For many of us, this is not the first recruit we went through and came out empty handed. I think as much as this sucks, we should all focus on the improvements we made between this recruit and previous recruits. Whether you got more interviews off the bat or did better in securing additional interviews, I think we can all take pride in any and all of the improvements we made. Now if you will all excuse me, my  dairy queen order is almost here :)

Gonna start working on my LPP registration so at least I won't get rejected from that. 

In all seriousness, kinda bummed.  I thought I had a pretty good chance at at least one place. 

Is there a sort of mini articling recruit that happens after the formal recruit like there usually is for the 2L recruit, or is it time to cold email and apply to the positions that pop up here and there?

To my knowledge a decent amount of firms that normally do this recruit did not participate. What I think will happen is most of them will hire, they will just do so next semester.

The end of the WEEK?! How does that make any sense? People will be forced to accept earlier offers. Does that apply to ALL MAG offices?

Court Services! Not sure if any others are doing this as well

I didn't apply as broadly since I had a narrower range of fields I was interested in and applied to boutiques. What crushes me is that I got very early calls between 8AM to 810AM on interview day, and Monday early interviews. I must have really messed up my interviews, and there are virtually no other jobs left in the fields I was going for.

This cuts pretty deeply, I'd be okay with literally not getting paid and just getting credentials. Really just jaded at how rigid and controlled entire legal fields seem to be and how much of a barrier entire fields of law are.

I got a call (many many years ago) at about 6:30pm after someone who received an offer took a long time to decide before declining. I was hired back at that firm and then lateraled to a firm that I didn’t even get an interview at. Your career is a long and winding road.

Does anyone else just feel so devastated that a place where you thought you were a top choice (and they said things to make you seem like you were a top choice) did not call you?

Yeah. I was literally the first person one firm called to interview, and first interview since they set the times. They really liked my CV apparently. I am crushed.

But as the time drags on it's becoming less and less likely. Has anyone heard from either of the MAG Crown Law Offices - Civil or Criminal?

    • Something important to remember is that as a lawyer, your reputation is everything. You start building this reputation as soon as you enter law school, and you should get used to considering how your actions, words, and commitments during law school may reflect on your eventual reputation as an lawyer. How the above relates to working during law school, is that if you choose to do so, you should be prepared to be open and ready to explain how your work commitment affects you, and why it may limit your ability to participate fulsomely in law school life at times. For example, you can expect to do a non-insignificant amount of group work- both in classes, and outside. You will need to be prepared to explain clearly what your work commitment entails, and should do so at the earliest opportunity, so as to ensure your colleagues can plan appropriately. You do not want to be the flakey student, who can never meet at times that work for the rest of your team, though has not communicated why, or attempted to compromise their schedule for the benefit of the team as a whole. 
    • Following because I’m in the same situation!
    • I’m not sure when it changed online but I received the email February 12th 
    • It is going to be online for sure. We aren't going to vaccinate enough people by then and the threat of variants is too high. There is no way universities will be in person for fall 2021. 
    • UBC has no problem accepting 3rd year candidates provided you have the requisite credits. Are you sure you don’t want to finish your degree? I know some people who’ve expressed regrets about not finishing their degree but it’s not otherwise a hindrance in getting a job, all things being equal.
