Foreign Law Degree In Canada
and Looking to Convert through FLSC-NCA?
Get the advice and road map from a lawyer who has succesfully navigated through the whole FLSC-NCA process!
Foreign-trained lawyers must go through an accreditation process with the Federation of Law Societies of Canada’s (FLSC) National Committee on Accreditation (NCA). This can be a daunting obstacle for many returning after already many years of hard work committed to their respective law degrees. Justin successfully passed 7 NCA challenge exams and successfully tutored many other candidates through mandatory/core challenge exams.
“More information about the FLSC and the NCA challenge exams can be found here.
Justin offers tutoring sessions for the following subjects:
- Foundations Canadian Law
- Canadian Constitutional Law
- Canadian Administrative Law*
- Canadian Criminal Law
- Canadian Professional Responsibility
*The Administrative Law exam is a particularly challenging one where many candidates often fall short on their first attempt. Justin coaches candidates to sit and pass this exam with the requisite proper usage of strategy and time management. Hint: the questions they give will always take longer than the allotted 3 hours to answer… the key is to find that special balance to pass while completing the exam!
The focus of tutoring sessions with Justin is not on substantive content. It is focused on the necessary exam-taking skills that are required to be able to pass the FLSC’s NCA challenge exams. This is achieved through working with proven road maps that Justin has developed to efficiently answer the questions on the NCA exams. This is not advice to ignore the importance of knowing and understanding the content of the syllabus.
The key to efficiently passing the NCA exams lies in the efficient preparation that allows the candidate to quickly access knowledge/law in the open-book format exam while sticking to answering only what is asked and avoiding the shotgun approach of regurgitating/reciting a broad spectrum pure knowledge. Being able to understand the key to accessing knowledge/law quickly in the exam setting will also begin to prepare the candidate for sitting the Bar exams after gaining recognition of their law degrees in Canada.
