Lol Why bc I called you out on being annoying? And there is more of a point for me being in this thread than you. So don't tell me to go away


No, because you're being an asshole to my friend who only suggested that you be nice. So if you don't want to leave, kindly just cool it.

Haha, I know, I feel the same but I figured that 1000 in the long run isn't that much, plus I would be basically delaying employment for another year, and lose another year before I retire (working as a lawyer that is). So I just want to start. Plus, going to U of T isn't the end of the hope for U.S. If you're really good, a lot of Canadians go to NY and are actually allowed to take the Bar Exam, unlike Canada's protectionist impediments. Haha, I guess I'm rationalizing opting for U of T now.

Not entirely true. But no point in going into details.

:|

Number of people who actually get big law from U of T is very minimal. Also, you can only write the bar in New York, Massachusetts, and California (if you have previously been called to the bar in another state). Coming back to Canada from the US really isn't any more cumbersome than going the other way, in fact, on might argue its less cumbersome because once pass the NCA accreditation process in Canada you can practice law anywhere in Canada.


Recent stats indicate that the top 10% of the class goes to NY. Furthermore, U of T has the greatest number of grads in Canadian Big Law than any other Canadian Law School. You can write the exam in NY and MA straight from law school (being that NY tends to be the primary legal market in the states, I don't consider that to be a problem). So theoretically, you can practice in the states, right after you graduate in Canada.

On the other hand, the NCA process takes a minimum of 6 months and multiple challenge exams. Not to speak of the cost of each exam (~550).

I personally think however, that there are impediments to either case, and ideally you should attend law school in the country where you wish to practise. But coming to Canada from the states is not less cumbersome.

Not the correct place for this discussion.

I merely responded to your statement. But you're correct in that this isn't the right place.

It takes certain kind of person to look at that picture and automatically think of sexual assault.

Everyone has been practicing their debate skills for law school. Now that practice is over, however, peace will take over again!!!

In law school, my finals will be a composite of the most relevant legal lolcats.
