Assuming that the process is the same as it was last year, you’ll be assigned to one of the two English sections for each class, and then you’ll have the option to choose between that section or the French section. For example, you half of last year’s class was assigned Prof. Dedek for contracts, Prof. Ellis for ECO/torts, Prof. Narain for constitutional, Prof. Klein for crim, and Prof. Mills for ILT, and you could either register for their sections if you wanted to take the course in English, or register for the French section for any or all of those classes.
Essentially, we had two options for each class: one of the two English sections, or the French section, with no option to register for the other English section (the section that we weren’t assigned).
I’m not actually sure how lawyers get any work done during the day. I started getting invited to “hop on the calls” for a file recently and they torpedoed hours of my days. Then I got to go do the work we talked about on the calls. Very nice.
I should add that there’s more miscellaneous at Big Firms because you end up doing things like lunch and learns, talking to prospective students, student events/bonding activities or weekly drinks with the firm (pre-COVID).
And less admin cause there’s more staff.
Sorry it didn't occur to me to mention earlier, but the urinals in Allard Hall are terrible. There is one for little people and one for NBA players.
I think I forgot about this because thanks to COVID it's been a while since I last set foot in that building.
