    Ah, I suppose it's a bit different In Canada. Of course, a lot of personal injury lawyers here hate being called "ambulance chasers", but they make some of the best money in the business and cases are rarely lost. Most're settled, which is probably more my arena than Court hearings.

    Oh wow. I was actually surprised, upon reading a few Canadian judgements, that they were in French. It must be difficult, considering some provinces adopt French common law, and the others English. What happens on appeal, exactly? Is there like a French High Court and an English one, or something like that?

    There is a bit of over-saturation here too. There's about 40 law schools (only 20-odd are prominent) each catering for about 200 law students each. So, you can imagine, with only a population of 25 million, there's a fair few practicing solicitors and barristers. Most law students actually have to do two to three years of voluntary placements before they can secure a job in a law firm. That is, if your grades aren't good enough.

    I actually live here permanently, and I've studied here all my life. It'd be difficult for me to go back to New Zealand, because even the market back there is ridiculously bad for lawyers. Australia really isn't the greatest looking place, though. Nor is it what it's cracked up to be. I'd much rather live in Canada. Hah.

    My exams aren't for 5-6 weeks, though. First one is Torts, I believe. Lucky me. What subjects did/are you taking this semester?

    Wow, that's intense! Double degrees here are a bit different, I guess. You get to pick the subjects you want - most make Law their major degree, which means they do 32 core law subjects (including the Priestly Eleven) and like 20 business subjects. I think a full load on a double here is 4-5 subjects per semester. Not sure, though. I'm just doing straight law, which at my University, is four subjects per semester for 4 years. Other Universities do anywhere between 2-6 subjects for a full load. But 7-8 subjects? That's insane.

    I've always admired Canadian universities too, 'cause they produce some fantastic judges and barristers. I s'pose all the hard work pays off.

    I also like the idea of Criminal, but not really my strong suit either. I'm not the greatest advocate - in the Criminal moots I've done, I haven't scored too high for advocacy. But it's still an idea. Corporate's always been my thing, though. I also enjoy personal injury and workplace injuries. Ever considered that?

    The good thing about law school, I guess, is the breadth of subjects. I'm currently doing Torts, Jurisprudence, Legal Writing, and Constitutional law. I seriously can't get enough of Torts, but I feel like killing myself in Jurisprudence. :\

    That sounds wicked. Good luck with your final, mine's not for 6 weeks. Fortunately for you and your dual degree, you won't have to do 4 law subjects in the same semester (or however many subjects a full load is in Canada), which is just about the most difficult, most mind-frying thing that probably ever existed.

    I'm actually hoping to do corporate - probably bankruptcy, international trade, employment law or intellectual property. You?

    Very similar, I see. Haha.
    I'm actually from Australia. You're from the UK, I'm guessing? What're you studying?

    Did anyone ever tell you that you're good at math?
