Entry is free and welcome to anyone interested studying in the UK, whether you have already applied or are just interested in more information! Registration can be found at the bottom of the page.
During the event, you will have the opportunity to meet a number of UK Law Schools that have made the trip to Canada in order to speak to students in person. You will also be able to talk to our student advisors (who have studied in the UK themselves) about anything you have questions about. You can book a meeting with an advisor and you can go around to speak to the universities that are at the fair throughout the evening. When you arrive, you will have to "check in" at the information desk! After you have done that, you can walk around the room as you like and talk to universities, advisors and gather information throughout the evening.
1-2-1 ADVISING SESSION WITH AN ADVISOR
During the evening, you will have the opportunity to chat with one of our advisors. If you want an advising session (15 minutes where you can sit and talk one-on-one with an advisor about your application or questions), this must be booked in advance. When you register for the event, you will receive more information on how to book this.
Advising sessions are very popular and fill up very quickly, so sign up early! If you are unable to book an appointment with an advisor, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, we can put you on a waitlist or try to find an alternative option for you.
UNIVERSITIES IN ATTENDANCE
Almost all of our university partners will be present at the fair! You can see a complete list on the right of this page. To speak with a university, just go to their booth and feel free to ask them any questions you may have. Don’t be nervous about approaching them – they are very friendly and eager to get to know you! You may even end up having one of the representatives as a professor during your law degree!
TOP TIP: Think about any key questions or concerns you have before the event and write them down. You can bring your list with you to reference when you speak to each university and even take notes to reflect on when the fair is over!
If you don’t have any specific questions that come to mind, just ask them to tell you about their programme, what extracurricular activities are available, such as mooting or law societies, or what sets their university apart from other law schools. If you are trying to narrow down your choices between a few law schools, this is the perfect chance for you to speak with them each and to ask them about the most important factors to for you in choosing your law school.
This is a unique opportunity to talk to the universities at your leisure! It doesn’t have to be only about the law school in particular. Maybe you aren’t sure about living in university accommodation and want to hear about private options near campus. Maybe you are an athlete and want to ensure you’ll have the best chance of continuing with your activities during your studies. Maybe you want to really embrace being in the UK and are looking for a smaller city/university with a “quintessentially British” feel. Or maybe you are really looking forward to travelling during your studies and want to make sure you’ll have great access to travel links. The representatives from each university will be perfect to provide you with insight into all these things.
We will also be having a social meet and greet the following evening. This will be an opportunity to interact casually with representatives from the law school, other students, and most importantly alumni who have completed their law studies in the UK already. It will be a great chance to hear a bit more about their experience during their time in the UK and while transferring back to Canada and seeking employment.
The Alumni Mixer will be held on the evening of 4th March 2023 in Downtown Toronto. The exact location will be provided to after you have registered below.
To come to the event(s), please use the form below to register your interest. This will notify us that you plan on coming and means we will be to notify you of any updates to the program and to send you a reminder closer to the fair. If you aren’t sure whether you’ll be able to attend or not, that’s okay you can either register now and then notify your advisor later on if you won’t be able to make it.
If you would like to schedule an advising session with an advisor during the fair, we recommend that you sign up early because these advising sessions fill up quickly! If you haven’t signed up and decide to attend last minute, or maybe one of your friends is interested in studying law as well and decides to join you, there will still be an opportunity to register at the door. If you have signed up in advance however, it will be faster for you to get in if there is a queue when you arrive.
You will be able to come and go as much as you like during the evening after you register. You can of course bring parents, siblings, friends or even your teacher along with you. Everyone who could benefit from studying in the UK is most welcome! So make the trip even if you just starting to consider studying in the UK in the future, this is not an event just for those who have applied or decided to apply, but for everyone who wants to learn more about what study opportunities exist in the UK.
Canada Law from Abroad is an incredible organization. My advisor assisted me all throughout my Law School application process and still continues to do so, even after I have been accepted to all of my choice schools, and accepted my offer to the University of Southampton – accelerated LLB program (JD Pathway).
I could not have completed such a difficult process without her assistance. She was with me every step of the way. Her knowledge of the UK law school application process through her own experience as a Canadian law student studying abroad was a great advantage, it was also comforting to know that she had been through the same experience.
Without a doubt, I highly recommend Canada Law from Abroad.
I am a first year law student in University of Southampton. I worked with Aurora from Canada Law From Abroad for my application. She is always supportive and responsive, and helped me greatly during my entire application process. I truly appreciate her support, and would highly recommend CLFA to future potential students!
I enjoy my law studies in University of Southampton very much. It is a highly recognized university and ranks tops 1% globally. The program is very well designed, and the faculty is well connected and also very supportive. The professors' passion towards law and the topics covered in classes are really encouraging and inspiring. The campus is absolutely beautiful, and you will always have so much to do here with all the clubs and societies!
I found both John and the website to be immensely helpful providing information and feedback with my application to UK law programmes. John was always timely with his responses to any questions I had or updates to my application. The website was a huge help in providing information and a step by step explanation to the procedure necessary to successfully apply. Quickly learning the advantages of each school and the difference between law programmes in general was a huge help. It made the process simpler and less concerning. I would recommend John to anyone looking to apply to law in the United Kingdom.
Thanks again John. I am very excited to start school this October at the University of Southampton. It was my first choice out of the five schools I had applied to, and really like the school’s programme.
In 2015, I contacted CLFA expressing an interest in studying law in the UK. My advisor went above and beyond to facilitate my application. He assisted me with every step in the process from securing an academic reference to preparing my personal statement. Shortly after, I accepted my offer of admission from the University of Southampton, a Russell Group university ranked in the top 1% worldwide.
Studying law in the UK was the best decision I have ever made - I had the opportunity to travel to 13 countries while completing my law degree in 2 years and shadowing lawyers/judges at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. In 2017, I completed my Accelerated LLB Law degree and returned to Canada. I successfully completed 7 NCA exams and obtained my Certificate of Qualification.
Now in 2018, I am a current Law Society of Ontario licensing candidate preparing to write the bar exams. I am planning to pursue a career in criminal defence and family law. My dream of becoming a lawyer would not have been possible without my advisor's support and guidance.
I highly recommend Canada Law From Abroad to any students considering pursuing a law degree.
