How to become a lawyer in Canada.

Are you a lawyer outside of Canada? Are you a  Canadian who has attended law school outside of Canada?

Either way you must be admittted to a Canadian provincial bar. This means that will have to have your "foreign" legal education approved by the Canadian National Committee On Accreditation.

The process is difficult and confusing. This is your chance to particpate in a live discussion about how the process works.

Basically, the discussion will focus on:

1. What are the requirements you must meet in order to be able to be admitted to the Bar Admission Course in a Canadian Province; and

2. How will your non-Canadian legal education be evaluated.

This series of events is to chat with you in a group setting.
