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 assisted me in the whole process of applying to law schools in the UK.
I was fortunate to meet my advisor in person in one of CLFA's downtown Toronto sessions in the fall of 2017 where she provided me with a detailed account of how CLFA operates and what I can expect from the team. To those who can make it to one of these sessions, I highly recommend attending them and setting up an appointment! My advisor was extremely helpful in providing me a shortlist of law schools that catered to my specific needs. Furthermore, she was always there whenever I had questions and concerns and always kept me up to speed with my applications assuring me to not worry.
Fast forward to 2020, I have successfully graduated from York Law School and am now pursuing my NCAs to start the ball rolling to get my feet in the door in Ontario! I highly recommend students pursuing law school in the UK to approach Canada Law from Abroad!
My experience has been great. The size of the city (York) makes it very convenient to get around easily, yet still has the energy you'd expect from a big city. The city itself is an awesome place to walk around and enjoy some down time, but the University of York campus has everything you need, as well. I have always enjoyed the small-town community feel, and York has that in spades.
The course has been well organized, and the problem-based approach to learning has made the material beneficial to post-university employability. The University's Roses competition is pretty cool and brings a community vibe to the school.
I chose the University of York because of its reputation and the city itself. York is one of the nicest cities in the UK and I wanted an interesting place to live while I continued my studies overseas.
I'd like to thank Canada Law From Abroad, particularity Vivian my student advisor. Without your help I could have never had the smooth process that I did. With help with my personal statement to advise on schools and encouragement I was accepted to York! I'm very exited for my journey in the UK!
