I am applying to UofT and UBC, but maybe I should go to McGill instead? I thought UofT Faculty of Law was Canada's flagship school.
Only problem...McGill has a French requirement. So I'd have to delay a year, so I could take some French.
EDIT: I've googled for hours and cannot find a list of OCI firms for either UBC, UT, or McGill. Any idea where I could find this information?
Someone on the lawstudents.ca board said UBC was the best "Asian law" school, so I'd like to actually get some hard numbers.
+1 I missed out on the deadline for UofT, but I'm also interested in UBC as well. Any information you might have about it would be great.
Also, how heavy is French, honestly, in the McGill curriculum?
Niederbomb: Where did you spend your year in China, if you don't mind me asking? I got back from Chengdu in May.
Like the other guy said, you won't have to fully speak French, in fact, no one cares, but you will the basics in reading/writing, which is easy to do and you will be able to take your Civil Law exams in English (Ok, 2 or 3 may be in French only but they are fairly easy to understand.)
