Direction for Immigrants – NCA Study Group

Are you an internationally trained lawyer in Calgary, Alberta? Do you feel a little lost and overwhelmed by the extent of the study material you must master? Perhaps you have a friend who is planning to become licensed to practice in Canada and could use some guidance?

We are incredibly excited to announce that our NO COST study groups for internationally trained lawyers start May 23, 2020.

After a very successful pilot program launched in February this year and the increased demand we’re experiencing, we will be offering exam preparation study groups for five NCA exams.

What do our study groups offer you?
Based on the syllabi outlined by the NCA (National Committee on Accreditation), our exam preparation study groups are facilitated by professionals to help you write your exams with confidence, and pass! You will have the opportunity to develop your study, writing, time management, and reasoning skills. Sessions will provide an opportunity to discuss and review complicated legal issues, apply applicable rules and laws, make sound analytical arguments and communicate legal issues, solutions, and conclusions clearly and concisely.
Each study group will consist of 10 sessions and will take place online.
Details of the study groups are:
