Friends ! need your advise for my son.
he just finished his 12th commerce from india. aim is to eventually start his own law practise in canada or join a good law firm.
1. should he do diploma in paralegal in ontario , gain work experience , do LLB , articleship , give his exams for barrister / Solicitor ??

2. Graduation from UOT / UBC , do LLb , articleship , barrister / solicitor.

3. Do 5 year BA , LLb integrated degree from India , complete requisite exams in canada , do article ship , barrister / solicitor.

which should be the better way forward for the young chap. Thank you for your guidance .

Hi, great to hear that your son has an ambition to study law. I am a Canadian student who finished my LLB in the UK and will be doing my LLM back home in Canada. To be honest, the prestigious law firms in Canada (Bay Street firms), will usually hire people who finished their law degree in Canada. So, if he is able to get into law school in Canada, that would be a great advantage in terms of job prospects. I had to upgrade my degree and pursue an LLM in Canada to increase my chances of getting employed. It is twice as hard to get a job when you completed your degree outside of Canada, and try to come into the country for a job. Canadian employers prioritize lawyers who got their law degree in Canada. Good luck!
