Answer Of course the average salary of a Toronto lawyer can greatly vary. Typically new associates will earn between 60,000 - 90,000 in a medium size Toronto fi…rm. Salaries tend to decrease outside of Toronto and further outside of Ontario. After completion of an LLB/JD, articling lawyers can expect to make somewhere in between 40,000 - 70,000, once again the same issue of location applies.
YES you can if you are a foreign lawyer and hell bent to wear the lawyer's gown in Canada. First you have to apply for assessment of your foreign legal credentials to the N…ational Accreditation Committee (NCA) based at Ottawa. You will be informed of requirements of courses/credits before you can be given an equivalence certificate equating you wth a Canadian law graduate. You will be informed if you need to meet these requirements at a Canadian Law School or through Challenge exams held by NCA or an option to do it by either of the two. Of course this will depend on their assessment. If you are from a Common Law system and have worked for years as a lawyer you will be asked for lesser requirements to meet than say if you are from a non common law legal system in which case you may have to almost go through the entire Law School Programme. After you meet NCA requirements, you get an equivalence certificate saying you are as good as a Canadian LL B. This certificate enables you to sit in any provincial Bar society exam. It depends on that Law Society again based on their assessment if you are and to what extent required to do the internship. Having done the internship and passing bar you are licensed to practice law by the law society of the province.

To become a criminal lawyer in Canada, you start by applying to one or more law schools. In order to be accepted, you will require excellent undergraduate grades and a high LS…AT score. You will also need to convince the admissions committee why you should be accepted instead of all the other applicants who also have excellent grades and a high LSAT score. If you are accepted, you will spend three years studying at law school. Only a few of your courses will involve criminal law. After law school, some jurisdictions require a period of something similar to apprenticeship. After that, you will have to pass the bar exams. Finally, you will go through the formal process of being "called to the bar." Then you will be able to practise criminal law.
There is a referal service and directory online where you can find a good lawyer in Canada. You just have to shop around online and you will be able to find a website that sho…ws you comments that their clients have made about them.
You can have a look at the yellow pages or type yellow pages online to get more information about lawyers in Canada. You may also be more specific about the location and place…s.
No. Lawyers need to belong to that respective province's bar association.
why does the location matter tho -.-
The Toronto Lawyers website provides a directory of over 25,000 lawyers that live either in Toronto, Canada or on the outskirts of it. Lawyer Locate is also a good website for… finding lawyers.
Talk to someone in the immigration department from the Canadian Government. To decide whether they are qualified or not, make sure to check qualifications and find out which d…epartment of immigration they are from.
You might need an immigration lawyer in Canada if you are seeking immigration status in Canada. Immigration lawyers are legally, professionally and ethically forced to act in …your best interests and it would be at their disadvantage to do otherwise.
