Part 5 – Bar Admission In Canadian Provinces
So, you want to be a lawyer! Unfortunately, graduating from law school is only the first step. After graduating from a Canadian law school (be careful it is hard to become a lawyer in Canada without graduating from a Canadian school) you must complete the Bar Admission Course in the province you wish to practice. You may graduate from any Canadian law school and become a lawyer in any Canadian province. You need not graduate from law school in the province you wish to practice.
The Bar Admission Course consists of a combination of “articling” and a “classroom component.” It takes from ten to eighteen months to complete (depending on the province).
Further information on the requirements for each province may be found at: www.flsc.ca
