  4. Hi there!
    Emond Montgomery Publications (we publish many of your law school and NCA casebooks) is now also offering a preparation course and practice exams for the Ontario Bar Exams. In the past we’ve had many NCA students take the class, and a lot of them have commented that they think we should try to publicize more within the NCA community. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like more information about the course or the practice exams.
    Good luck and happy studying!
