Occupations A to Z

We help internationally educated professionals in any occupation, and in any industry. For the Winter 2022 edition of the newsletter, we are highlighting the occupation of lawyer. These professionals “study and interpret points of law to advise clients of their rights and legal obligations, and represent client interests in legal transactions and proceedings,” according to Alberta Careers, Learning, and Employment Information (ALIS). 
In Alberta, you must be registered with the Law Society of Alberta to practice law and to call yourself a lawyer. Internationally educated lawyers must apply to the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) for assessment of legal credentials and experience as the first step of the licensing process. For more details on the licensing process for internationally educated lawyers, visit Information on my profession to learn what you need to know to practice as a lawyer. 
We currently offer exam preparation study groups for internationally trained lawyers who are planning to become licensed to practice in Canada that include: 
Canadian Criminal Law
Canadian Professional Responsibility
Canadian Administrative Law
Canadian Constitutional Law
Foundations of Canadian Law
