What Former Students Have to Say about the Clinical Law Program

 

“The Law Centre was the best experience of law school. I learned more in four months at The Law Centre than the rest of law school combined. It was such a wonderful learning opportunity. I ran a criminal trial, helped tenants avoid eviction at RTB hearings, drafted wills, filed divorces, attended payment hearings, negotiated with Crown Counsel… and so much more! I highly recommend it to all law students. I now feel much more equipped to start articling next year.”

 – Erika D

 

“I will genuinely miss working here. It is a unique opportunity to learn from many different styles of research, and a safe environment to experience real advocacy. The staff are great people, and the office dog warms up to you eventually.”

 – Josh N, previous Law Centre Articling Student

 

“The hands-on experience I gained from The Law Centre was one of the best part about law school. I learned to prepare for trials, draft pleadings and gained valuable interview skills. The experience was stressful at times but working with my fellow students was a lot of fun. I also feel a lot more confident being in the court room! The Law Centre is also a great way to discover your areas of interest that you want to practice in. “

– Hailee C

 

“If you are even remotely interested in practicing law then you should ballot for the Law Centre. Even though I did three law co-op terms in public and private practice, the Law Centre was a unique opportunity because I actually was able to run my own files, instead of simply providing legal research support to other lawyers. I learned invaluable skills in client relations, trial prep, and managing my time effectively in a supportive, collaborative, and fun work environment. I also felt great satisfaction because I saw how the Law Centre’s work makes a real difference in terms of access to justice for vulnerable populations. It was an amazing summer!”

“Stop debating and just sign up for the Law Centre.  Go out of your way to make it work in your schedule.  It will be the most fun and beneficial semester you will have at law school.”

– Sean S.
