Occasionally, I question my life and if I really should quit my somewhat okay job to go to law school.  I would like to thank today for reminding me that I cannot stand my job and quitting will be glorious when the time comes.

I was feeling the same way yesterday. Working sucks.

But then again, I've never questioned my desire to go back to school. I hate working generally.

Anyone see the old Kentucky logo?



Very similar.  Guess why they had to change it

Ugh.. political correctness.

Well, you'll never get into legal academia without a JD from the T-14. Aside from that though, any law degree in the US is valid to practise.

However, you will have to go through a gruelling accreditation process (see the NCA) before ever being allowed to secure an article. Moreover, because of the relatively limited American alumni base within Canada, you may have some trouble ever finding an article in the first place. I think this is where "brand name" may matter. A Harvard JD for example will have a much easier time impressing recruiters than one from Cooley.

Then, of course, you'll have to sit for the Ontario bar.

The lesson is, if you intend to practice in Canada, get a Canadian law degree.

ETA:

Has Osgoode sent "regret" letters yet? I thought those were sent en masse in June.
