NCA Exams in Canada


cgbesq
Dear all,

I am looking to take the NCA exams in August of 2013 (do not know which ones yet), after receiving my evaluation from the NCA (I am a U.S. law school graduate and admitted in Virginia and England & Wales). I currently reside in Central Europe and will probably immigrate to Canada in a year or so (the result of a personal relationship).

Is anyone else studying for the August 2013 exams? Perhaps anyone from Europe?

I would greatly appreciate any hints on where to obtain good preparation materials.

Thank you very much.

Christiane,

I'm also a U.S. law school graduate going through the NCA process. I only have to take the four core exams, which I understand is the norm for U.S. law school grads with relatively good grades. Check out www.scribd.com. Unfortunately you have to pay a small fee to download documents, but you can find some useful outlines created specifically for the NCA exams. Best of luck to you!

Im assessed by the NCA to take the exams in 9 subjects or enroll them. I plan to take the challenged exams. Any tips in taking them?

Where can I buy the NCA notes?

Thank you in advance.

For landed immigrants it is possible to take those courses separately in Toronto almost for free, from Osgoode law school, York University and even get a bursary from the state for taking those. I am not sure whether the bursary covers it 100% therefore almost for free. They have the info on the Osgoode prof development website.

But for what I know the NCA evaluation wants applicants from outside Canada, at least those with Civil Law degrees and LLM from the USA to write the same 9-10 exams as any other civil law jurisdiction qualified without a common law LLM degree. May be it is different for JDs.
