American JD working in Canada

Postby lshamlet » Mon Nov 15, 2010 10:02 pm

Hey everyone,

I know the consensus is that most law schools outside the T14 are very regional, but with a T14 degree you can work anywhere in the country. Will a T14 JD also afford you the opportunity to work in Canada? Are the top schools here respected over there as well?

I think it's a hassle getting credited to work in Canada.

indeed it is one-two year for NCA exams and then a year of Articling before taking the bar. If you want to work in Canada I would wait until next year and apply to U of T (if you have the number for a Top 14 is should get in) as they have high placement rate in New York and U of T will be better (and quicker) to work in Canada
