Excelling in the NCA Process – October 17/11 – Toronto

Young Lawyers’ Division Central: Excelling in the NCA Process and Beyond |
October 17, 2011

Foreign-qualified lawyers must obtain a Certificate of Qualification from the National Committee on Accreditation (“NCA”) to practice in Ontario. The NCA, a standing committee of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada (“FLSC”), examines the qualifications of foreign-qualified lawyers and makes recommendations on behalf of the Law Society of Upper Canada (“LSUC”), and all other law societies in Canada, as to the further study of law required before the applicant can enter a particular bar admission program. The NCA process can be challenging, especially for those with limited prior connections to Ontario. In this program, speakers will discuss the NCA program and the subsequent LSUC requirements, and will provide tips for success during the NCA process and beyond, i.e., with respect to acquiring an articling position and practicing law. This free-to-attend program will benefit both NCA applicants and those who wish to know more about hiring foreign-qualified lawyers. The program will be followed by a free-to-attend networking reception hosted by the Ontario Bar Association.
