1L summer jobs in a different Province

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what the probability is of obtaining a 1L summer job in a province different than you attend school. I am from Alberta but currently attending Western Law. How likely is it that I could get a 1L summer job in Edmonon? Do firms usually look for students who attend UofA or do they equally consider students from all law schools. I plan on articling in Alberta. Thanks!

Given that you are from Alberta this should not be an issue. I'm from Alberta but go to UBC. Myself and many of my classmates (as there is a big Alberta contingent here) were able to secure jobs back home without issue.

    • Yes I have used the GPA calculators just I can't believe my eyes.    So upon looking at what schools im eligible to apply for, I'm realizing I caluculating my GPA lower than it actually is.    My understanding is Queens and UVIC use 4.33 as well as Dalhousie. All of which im applying to. My CGPA through my degree is 84.8. Am I right to say that this means I have a 4.0 on their scales?    My LSAT is: 162  If that's the case where can I apply with a 4.0 and 162?   
    • I have slightly different advice from the above (although I agree that your perception your peers are better off than you is probably wrong!).  You wrote that you're doing a lot of reading and briefing, but struggling with the application. It sounds like you need to focus more of your study time to that. You can do that through practice questions/tests, but I also just recommend making up your own hypotheticals in your head. I always would try to simplify it to the most basic and relatable terms. A lot of 1Ls say they struggle with the old cases because of the language, but I think it's also that the facts of cases aren't relatable. So try applying the rule to relatable problems. I may not be explaining this well. Feel free to PM me with a rule/case and I can give a concrete example of what I meant.  Learning the law matters so much less than being able to apply it, and it sounds like that's where you're struggling right now. 
    • I'd say my extra cirriculars are strong but I'm worried my GPA will ultimately hold me back
    • Hi, I was wondering what would be my chances with a 155 Lsat score and a 3.94 gpa (with drops). I only wrote the lsat once, and only really want to re-write in jan if necessary. I am a Manitoban resident.  Thanks for the responses. 
    • Which schools are you going to apply?
