Planning for 2020: Recent Grads & NCA Candidates (Key Dates Enclosed)
Updated: Mar 7, 2020
I can't believe it's almost been a year since I started this blog! The positive feedback I've had from so many of my lovely readers has really kept me going.
I started the blog out of my own frustration that so many of the key dates and important deadlines that recent law graduates and NCA Candidates need to be aware of were not collected in a single place or even easy to find. My first blog post contained a comprehensive calendar outlining all the dates/deadlines for:
NCA Registration & Examination Weeks
Summer Associate Applications
Articling Position Applications
Law Society and Bar Exam Registration, and
Court Clerkship Applications
I've updated this calendar to reflect the 2020 year and improved upon it by providing links to helpful blog posts for each stage of your legal journey. You can read and download the full calendar here.
Best of luck!
Disclaimer: The Calendar is meant to be a guide but not a definitive source of information. While I've made every effort to ensure the dates enclosed are correct for the 2020/21 year, please verify all dates/deadlines with the appropriate organization to ensure personal success. Key law recruitment dates are written from an Ontario perspective. Requirements and dates in your province may differ. However, in. my experience most large law firms followed the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) recruitment timelines in 2019 regardless of which province they were located in.
