Southampton is calm and peaceful, and I was able to focus on my studies without distractions.
During my study, I spent much of my free time at the Southampton courts. I attended many court sections which I found benefited me when I returned to Canada. My advice for students returning to Canada from Southampton is to be proactive before you go back. Start the NCA process right away and try to gain internships at Canadian firms whenever you have the opportunity.
Since leaving Southampton, I embarked on the ITLP at the law school, University of Toronto in Canada. The two years study allowed me to get into the Canadian bar entry level and I was able to pass the Canadian bar quickly to reach my goal to be a Canadian lawyer within two years. I passed the Canadian bar in June 2014.
