What is your general feeling about the school? Where did you end up when it was all over? Were the professors nice? Is there a big public speaking component? Where did you do your placement? Etc etc. Thanks for taking the time to reply!!
The school is o.k. There are some wonderful professors and there are some awful professors (much like anywhere else, I would imagine, except that it is likely more difficult to keep good talent in a smaller city like Fredericton than it is in, say, Vancouver or Victoria).
By youthful conceit, I ended up in Newfoundland. (Don't make the same mistake.) Go to the biggest and best law firm that will hire you in a real market, like Calgary or Toronto.
You will have to participate in moot court as a first year; that is the only mandatory "public speaking" thing that you will have to do. You may also be called upon in class from time-to-time to discuss readings that have been assigned for your various courses.
I wish to caution you about two things:
(1) Fredericton is small, cold, inconvenient, isolated, occasionally depressing and a bit boring, so make sure that you absolutely want to be there prior to accepting any offer of admission; and
(2) many Canadian firms look down their noses at small law schools like UNB; try your very best to get into U of T, McGill, UBC, U of A, etc.
Should you have any other questions, please feel free to ask away!
