Law School

Law school is a terrific challenge. And a law degree can lead to many careers. To become a lawyer in Canada, law school is the first step (well, right after doing fabulously well in your undergrad!). A law degree may also provide an excellent foundation for a host of other careers, such as teaching or research, politics, government service, senior management for business or non-profit (the latter especially when combined with a business degree). If you haven’t already done so, it can be useful to do some exploring and reflecting prior to deciding whether or not law school is for you. Here are some resources you may find helpful:

  • VIU Campus Career Centre provides resources for students who are exploring potential careers.
  • The Law Society of BC – all lawyers in BC must be members of the Law Society of BC. You can find out about licensing & membership information, in addition to many other useful resources provided.
