What are the big law firms in Canada? Where are they located? What law schools do they primarily recruit from?

You can make a good dollar in a lot of different places. A suggestion would be to think about what you're INTERESTED in. Law in general isn't exactly badly paid.Quote from: Praetor on December 07, 2004, 03:54:42 PMWhat are the big law firms in Canada? Where are they located?

Seven Sisters recruit from UofT and Osgoode mainly, and your marks better be amazing.
Caec, did you retake? I f-ing owned the dec test, hope you did too. Of course then i only have a 3.7, not a 4.0Matt
Are you sure about them recruiting for Oz? I've had a few people tell me that big firms view Oz as too left wing. Is that not accurate? As for marks, we're talking law school here not undrgrad right?
Caecilius, what about Dal, Queen's and Western? (which are the ones it was suggested to me the big firms really like).What kind of law would the big Bay St. firms be focussed on? For example, Oz has several 'streams' you can enter. Would any be more advantageous for a position at one of those firms?
Well, I guess my information is out of date (as I'm getting it from two former hockey coaches who are lawyers and in their early 40s). Good news about Oz, as it's best for me geographically and socially. All about the December LSAT now.One last question though, what would be the chances of interning with one of these firms? Would it be possible before 1L? After 1L? After 2L?
