B.C. Bar Exam
« on: May 09, 2007, 08:00:29 PM »
Hi,

I've completed a 5 year Master of Law program in Poland (Civil Law) and I'm planning on moving to Vancouver with my Canadian husband.

I want to eventually practice in Vancouver and I'm wondering about the Bar Exam. Does anyone know where to obtain old bar exams to look over as examples?

Any insight into the bar exam would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Hoa

Doubt you'll find much information from posters here.
A simple search on google and I found http://www.lawsociety.bc.ca/licensing_membership/returning_to_practice.html
Midway down the page there is information about purchasing study materials.

I'm wondering how this took me 5 seconds to find (and I could care less about this) and yet you were unable to find this information in your own research.

I'm also reasonably certain that a degree in Civil Law will not allow you to practice in B.C as it would Quebec, but I am not 100% sure. 

Hope that helps.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to help out. I actually did find the study materials you pointed me to but I was just looking for some other suggestions as well.

Thanks,
