justanothersucker:
Based on what I can tell Canada dosn't let someone walk about of an American JD program right into practice in Canada. It looks like there is extra schooling required after the transfer up. Knowing that, why would anyone ever(and yet countless numbers do) move down from Canada to America to get a JD with full intent of going back up when done?

Why? Can someone please explain this to me?

jabmalassie:
Are you a lawyer? Where did you graduate from?

justanothersucker:
what difference would that make? I'm not Canadian either. WTF is your point?

rhombot:
canadian schools have earlier application deadlines. miss them and the US looks like a good options.

also, canadians can practice law in the US on a NAFTA visa.

justanothersucker:
all good points, my question is about the ones who openly say "I plan to live and work in Canada after I graduate"
If they wanted to live on the border and dayjob it that would make sense. I am talking about the ones who plan to PRACTICE IN CANADA afer graduation.
