McGill has law students that have done their undergrad in the US.

No, you don't have to take the LSAT, but if yu, they look at it.

Some more questions that I have...

Could I go to law school here in the USA, like lets say NIU College of Law, get a JD then take the bar in Quebec and practice law?

How much money do lawyers make in Quebec/Canada?

How much schooling after my bachelors (in the USA) well be required in Canada? 3.5 years for the LLB, and then another two years with the bar?

Thanks!

The short answer is no. They would require that you study two more years, than an extra year at the bar school, and only then take the bar. Not a good way of going about it.

For student line of credits, Royal Bank loan officers refer to a playbook that considers that the typical attorney will make 60K at graduation.

3 years of LLB, maybe 3.5 or 4 if you do both civil and common. the bar and relatecd shennanigans may be 2. Check with them.
