At Canada Law from Abroad, our aim is to provide free counselling to students to help ensure they are making an informed decision when it comes to their law studies and that they are set up in the best possible way to be successful during their degree and when returning to Canada to pursue their legal career. One of the biggest concerns that students have when they first come to us is about their prospects for networking and seeking employment when finishing their degree. We will post your feedback on our website mainly, but it may also appear on social platforms, and in print material, such as our university guide/viewbook.

We only publish your first name, the profile picture you´ve submitted, as well as the university/course you attend(ed). 

You can write as much or as little as you´d like and feedback from potential applicants show that hearing from other's experiences after graduation is most helpful when considering their future career and degree abroad. Thank you for helping other students who are currently considering studying in the UK. Please make sure the information you share is relevant to future students. E.g. what student life or graduating was like during Covid-19 lockdown will hopefully not be relevant to future cohorts of students. 

If you have graduated more recently and aren't yet working in the field, you may find your student experience to be more fresh and easily conveyed. In this case, we'd love for you to share your Student Experience here instead. If you have been working for a while, either in the UK or Canada, our students would greatly appreciate hearing more about your journey post-degree. 


Please make your own headlines throughout the text. Divide your text into sections with titles that describe the content you are including in that section e.g. “The NCA Exams”, “Law Events on Campus", "Networking in Canada" etc.

You can use the below topics to help inspire you when writing your text:

  • How was your transition from the UK to Canada? (Depending on where you are in the process, please share your experience with the NCA process, networking, articling etc.)
  • How did your UK university experience prepare you for the transition?
  • What kind of career focused activities did you get involved with in the UK? For example, were you part of any Law Society activity, mooting competitions, campus clinic work etc.?
  • How do you think having a UK degree sets you apart from others?
  • Did you volunteer/do any part-time work while in the UK?
  • What are you currently doing?
  • What recommendations do you have for students completing their law degree in the UK? Is there anything you would do differently in hindsight to better set yourself up for your future career?
  • What is the top piece of advice you would give to a first year law student in the UK?


We would love it if you submitted a photo of yourself (please do not include other people), either in front of the university, in the city/town or just a headshot. It needs to be a picture that you or someone you know has taken to make sure we´re allowed to publish it (copyright).
