Join Canada Law from Abroad and some of our Partners for an evening of speed networking.
Interested in UK law school but overwhelmed trying to choose which options to apply to? This is the perfect opportunity to meet with representatives from various law schools all in one place! The intimate and informal nature of this event will allow you to practice your networking skills in a professional setting. You will be able to gather crucial information about everything from pro bono opportunities to campus accommodation and career support and as such get to know each university better as you become one step closer to choosing the right law school for you.
Canada Law from Abroad Advisors will also be on hand to meet with you for an advising session to further discuss your application.
Never attended a networking event before? Not to worry! Register to attend and Canada Law from Abroad will send you further guidance with tips on what to expect and what you will gain from this experience.
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 email@example.com, 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.
My name is Nicole and I am a recent graduate from York University in Toronto, Ontario. Ever since I heard of the Canada Law from Abroad program during my studies at York, I knew this was an opportunity I had to pursue.
I am so grateful to have been connected with my Guidance Counsellor / Advisor from Canada Law from Abroad, who has made the entire application process simple and straight-forward. From applying to Universities to my Student Visa, she has always been there and helped me every step of the way. She provides me with important information, is always there whenever I have a question and keeps me updated.
Now, approaching September 2019, I am so thrilled and excited to begin Law School at the University of Kent in Canterbury. I am looking forward to this amazing experience ahead and I would highly recommend Canada Law from Abroad to anyone who is interested in studying law.
I had heard people mention that studying law in the UK was a possibility, but had no real idea about how to go about doing so. I first randomly heard about an organization called CLFA from a friend, so I googled them and sent an email to see if this was a real possibility I could consider. I received an email from one of the Canada Law from Abroad staff, who would also become my advisor later on. I got a lot of information and not too long after, I began the process.
My process took a little longer then expected, and probably a little longer then most. I began the process in preparation for the 2016-2017 academic year. I was ecstatic when I began receiving the acceptance letters, but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be and I ran into some unexpected complications and had to postpone and defer my plans. I tried again the next year, and once again ran into a different but still unexpected issue which caused me to postpone it for another year. Throughout all this, my Canada Law from Abroad advisor was right there with me guiding and helping me to reach my goals of law school in the UK. Not only did she do that, she also helped me to not feel discouraged and to continue pursuing my goal.
I tried a third time and this time I made sure that everything I could control was done right. As it happens, my perseverance paid off, and the third time was the charm! Thanks for all the help, guidance and support along the way!
I’ve recently graduated from the University of Kent Law School, with a degree classification in the upper second-class honours (2:1).
When I first attended the Canada Law From Abroad advice session in September 2014, the process of applying, accepting, attending and completing law school was daunting. But with the support and guidance of John and recent graduates, I was able to work through the application process and eventually decide on the University of Kent Law School. At KLS, the teaching staff is unparalleled, arguing cases before the Supreme Court, European Court of Justice and International Court of Justice. Their combined professional and academic experience provided a firm foundation for my learning experience.
Beyond my academic experience, I clerked at the Kent Law Clinic. At KLC, I was tasked with conducting legal research, client intake interviews, facilitating free legal advice sessions and have clerked on multiple legal actions. The exposure and experience I have gained at Kent Law Clinic will undoubtedly aide me in my future as an Ontario lawyer.
If you are a prospective UK law student, Canada Law From Abroad will guide you in every step of the process, and you will be in no better hands.
Reaching out to CLFA was easily one of the best decisions I've ever made.
I've always had an interest in studying law overseas. I was never too sure how to go about finding credible information about the application process and generally what to expect. I reached out to CLFA and I was assigned a recruiter by the name of Vivian. Vivian was a tremendous help during this process. She not only suggested schools based on my interests, she helped break down the application process in a simple manner.
Without her support, it would not have given me the confidence to proceed and complete my application. I’m happy to share that I have received an offer of acceptance from the University of Kent. I’m excited for the future and all of its new possibilities thanks to Vivian and CLFA.
If anyone is interested in applying to law school in the UK, reach out to CLFA. You will not be disappointed.
Canada Law from Abroad provided fantastic step-by-step guidance during my application process and helped me to take advantage of the opportunity to combine my education with international experience.
I'm studying law at University of Kent and I just love it!
CLFA made applying to schools in the UK much easier and without them the process would have seemed impossible to do on my own. CLFA helped every step of the way and provided extremely helpful information, even after moving to England.
I would recommend CLFA to anyone thinking of studying in the UK because they really help make it much easier than just doing it on your own and studying in the UK is a great opportunity for anyone who is looking for an exciting opportunity to study law.
Without CLFA I don't think I would have applied to schools in the UK and I would have missed out on all of the great things here!
Thank you for all your help throughout everything!
Canada Law from Abroad is a great organization and helped me immensely while applying to law school in the United Kingdom.
My advisor helped me with all parts of the application process and made sure it was considered promptly by the admissions department.
CLFA also helped me with getting all parts of my Visa application completed, which can be a daunting process. I recommend anyone who is considering studying law overseas use Canada Law from Abroad.
