Internationally Trained Lawyer to Canadian Lawyer: How to Make the Transition

May 24, 2023 @ 5:00 pm


Foreign-trained lawyers can find exciting career opportunities in Canada. Legal professionals are in demand across the country but the path to get licensed to practise can be long and expensive.

Join Eric Pye of the Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED) and Lidia May, of Canadian charity, Windmill Microlending, to discuss the steps to becoming a licensed lawyer in Canada and the financial supports that are available to help you reach your Canadian career goals.

Get to know the process of qualifying and finding articling opportunities for Canadian Common Law (CCL) students, and how you can integrate your own job search with CCL processes and ITL-specific resources.

As well, learn about CPLED’s Practice Readiness Education Program and find out about affordable loans from Windmill Microlending, of up to $15,000, you can use to pay for the costs of accreditation, licensing, qualifying exams, professional development courses, even cost of living while you get certified to practise law in Canada. Your legal experience and knowledge have value in Canada. This webinar could be the opportunity you need to unleash your potential in your new country.
