practicing in Canada ?
« on: May 16, 2010, 03:32:35 PM »
Hi! I'm going to be starting as a 1L at Cooley law school at the ann arbor campus, and I am curious about practicing in Canada & what is required for people working on their US JD degree?  Especially, since the school I will be going to is in a border state ( Michigan).

Thanks!

An american JD plus a one year internship under a licensed attorney in canada. We have a foreign law society that offers a semester in canada too.
