UK Law School Applications: The Reference Letter

Asking for a reference letter can be very nerve-wracking for students! This can be especially true if you have been out of school for a bit, you studied part or all of your recent studies online, or you feel your class sizes or structure made it difficult to get to know any of your teachers very well. Not to worry! We are here to help!

Join the Canada Law From Abroad team to go over an important part of the application process - the reference letter. Our webinar will cover everything from factors you should consider when choosing a referee, how to approach a teacher or instructor about writing a reference for you and what the reference letter should include. UK law school applications going through UCAS have a very specific format that they need to use so we will make sure you know how to notify your referee about that as well!

An Evening with UK Law Schools

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.
 

UK LAW SCHOOL FAIR

During the event, you will have the opportunity to meet a number of representatives (including Law academics) from 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.  
 

ALUMNI MIXER

We will also be having a social meet and greet after the fair. This will be an opportunity to network casually with representatives from the law school, other students, and most importantly Canadian 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 take place right after the fair so you don't even need to travel in between. Most students will stay for both the fair and alumni mixer but if you're only able to attend one, that's fine! Just let us know with your registration which activities you plan to attend. 
 

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 events@canadalawfromabroad.com, we can put you on a waitlist or try to find an alternative option for you.

 

UNIVERSITIES IN ATTENDANCE

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 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 love sports or the arts 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 town/university with a “quintessentially British” feel. Or maybe you are really looking forward to the city life and 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.

This service has changed my life!

Photo of a red British telephone box

After doing the final semester of my undergraduate degree abroad in the Netherlands, I knew I wanted to complete law school in Europe. Once I started looking into the various options and countries available for this, I stumbled upon Canada Law From Abroad's website. At first, I was extremely skeptical... how could a service like this be free, this easy and cost absolutely nothing to use? However, using Canada Law From Abroad to apply to law schools has been the best decision I have made!

From the moment I sent off my initial email, my advisor has helped me more than I could ever explain. Aside from answering my countless emails and queries, she has provided me with so much information to ensure I was at peace of mind throughout each stage of the application process.

Words cannot describe how thankful I am for Canada Law From Abroad's service and all of my advisor's help. Without this organization, I would have never taken the plunge to apply to law school in England and would not be completing the two-year LLB program at the University of Leeds today!

To anyone considering applying, do not hesitate to use this service one bit! My experience was absolutely wonderful and I am certain it would be the same for anyone else in the future.

Thank you again for everything, I am forever grateful!

Amazing Experience!

Campus buildings in the sun

When initially thinking of applying to the UK for Law School, I didn't really know where to start. Canada Law from Abroad put me on the right track from A to Z helping me with the application process every step of the way.

I would like to sincerely like to thank my advisor who was so prompt and accommodating. She went above and beyond to make sure I was thoroughly informed and up to date. Canada Law from Abroad not only helps to get you into your prospective schools but also looks to prepare you for the upcoming transition and process (ex. visa application, etc.) which was very relieving. Any student who even has the idea of applying to the UK, but is hesitant because it seems daunting, should contact Canada Law from Abroad!

Thank you Canada Law from Abroad for your guidance and encouragement!

A smooth transition!

I attended one of  Canada Law from Abroad's meet & greets in Toronto a couple months before applying for law schools. I was able to talk to a representative who explained what my options were and how I could benefit from studying abroad. From there, every step of the application process was guided by one of  Canada Law from Abroad's senior consultants. She truly made a "stressful" process feel a lot easier, which made my transition to the UK much better than it would have been if I had done it alone.

Moreover, I was able to tell  Canada Law from Abroad what my goals were and they were very generous in sitting down and explaining which schools will help target my goals best. Really thankful for all the help Canada Law from Abroad has provided, and not to mention the simplicity and ease of communicating with a consultant. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in studying Law abroad!

I love studying in Leeds!

CLFA helped me with every step to fulfill my dream to study Law in the UK. Without them I don't think I would have been able to complete the process with such ease.

Thanks to them I am now studying in Leeds and I love it! Anyone from Canada wanting to study Law in the UK should use CLFA, they are an amazing organization.

Such a Great Service

My name’s Robert and I’m studying in the 2 year LLB (graduate programme) at the University of Leeds. 

I absolutely love the city of Leeds as there is so much to do and see. The university is even better, as they have such a large number of societies, activities and a large number of institutions to help you transition. 

The law school is fantastic and the teachers are incredible. Canada Law from Abroad offers such a great service, they helped me every step of the way and I wouldn’t be enjoying this great experience if it wasn’t for them. Any questions I had were immediately answered and they handled everything smoothly. 

Aurora was such a great help, I had no worries by the end of the process about moving and studying in another country. I highly suggest using their services, as they’re friendly, help guide you and ease any concerns you may think you have. 

I love the passion they teach with in England, and the overall experience of being involved in such an international school.

Better than a paid service!

The CLFA is an amazing organization. Vivian helped me a tremendous amount over the course of a year during my decision-making process. She and the entire team are patient and work to make your applications and life as easy as possible. It's hard to believe that this is a free service.
