Tussy needs advice – and where better to get it than Slaw.
My young Canadian friend Tussy Mohr needs some advice from the Slaw community – given its diversity of backgrounds and experience. She's like many recent graduates – wants to go to law school but is uncertain about the choices.
She's got a good science undergraduate degree from one of the top Canadian universities, a very respectable LSAT, but faces a dilemma. Should she apply to law schools in Canada or in the United States for an LLB/JD degree
She would like to focus on the space between law, science and public policy.
So three questions for Slaw:
1) Is there that much difference between Canadian and American law schools?
Leaving aside the top ten elite schools – Canadian schools aren't trying to compete with Harvard, Yale, Stanford etc.
2) Are there schools which are stronger in collaboration between law, science and public policy?
3) What sort of job opportunities (beyond obviously law teaching) open up with an LLB/JD with particular emphasis on law, science and public policy?
Advice for Tussy would be much appreciated.
