You never know how your story will turn out. After completing my undergraduate degree and finding myself in the middle of a recession, I turned to the Canadian Forces but a back injury stopped me dead in my tracks. I regrouped and found myself at Western Law, but the job market wasn’t getting any better. In my first article for Canadian Lawyer 4Students, I talked about my past and about the next steps in my journey. I told you I was ready to seize my opportunity and that opportunity is here. This marks the first in a four-article series I will be writing to document my experience with Ontario’s new Law Practice Program, an alternative to the traditional model of articling in Ontario. I will tell you a bit about the program and, in doing so, a bit about me and how the experience is preparing me for my own legal practice.
