As a Plus or Gold member, the Initial Consultation is your first live interaction with your lawyer-advisor. This is your opportunity to take advantage of your lawyer-advisor's knowledge and experience, and ask any questions you may have.

Once you purchase your package and become a Plus or Gold member, you will receive a link to your G&G Portal where you’ll complete your profile. Your profile will include information about your academic, employment, volunteer, and extra curricular activities, as well as your interests and goals. Based on your profile, we will match you with your very own dedicated lawyer-advisor, hand-selected to help you achieve your goals.

After being matched, your lawyer-advisor will reach out to schedule your initial consultation, which will take place via phone or online video call/chat. This is your opportunity to discuss your interests and goals with your lawyer-advisor, and ask any questions you have about the law school admissions process, law school, finding articles, or the practice of law in general.

Writing Skills Assessment

+ included in Plus and Gold

One of the keys to an outstanding law school application is being able to clearly communicate, in a compelling and concise way, all of the reasons why you should be accepted to the law school of your choice. Your lawyer-advisor will assess your writing skills now so that by the time it comes time to apply you'll be able to express yourself confidently, and put your best foot forward.

After you’ve completed your profile, you will be asked to submit a brief writing sample of around 500 words. This can be a sample of writing from something you have written before, or something you choose to write specifically for this assessment. Either way, your lawyer-advisor will review your writing sample and assess your writing skills. This assessment will be included in your Applicant Profile Assessment, and will improve the accuracy of both your profile and your Admissions Action Plan.

Oral Communication Skills Assessment

+ included in Gold

As a Gold member, your Initial Consultation is via phone or online video/chat, which provides your lawyer-advisor with an excellent opportunity to assess your oral communication skills. This assessment will further enhance the accuracy of your Applicant Profile Assessment and Admissions Action Plan.

There is no set portion of the Initial Consultation dedicated to the oral communication skills assessment. Your lawyer-advisor will take notes following the phone call/video chat in order to provide you with feedback later when it comes time to deliver your assessments.

Your oral communication skills may be an especially important component of your law school application down the road depending on which law school you apply to. An assessment of your oral communication skills at this stage will help you improve, and communicate more effectively when its time for your admission interview.

The Applicant Profile Assessment provides you with a personalized assessment of your strengths and weaknesses as a law school applicant, showing where you currently stand and which areas to focus on to improve your chances of getting into law school.

With more applications year over year, law schools have adopted increasingly rigorous admissions standards. In most cases, admissions committees consider far more than you GPA and LSAT score , including your employment history, extracurricular activities, volunteer activities, and the nature and level of your participation in these activities. Law schools use these categories to distinguish between the thousands of applicants with similar GPAs and LSAT scores, and ultimately, to decide who to offer admission.

The Applicant Profile Assessment is a powerful tool to see where you stand in each of the categories admissions committees consider, and which areas you need to focus on to improve your chances of getting into law school.

The Law School Admissions Assessment helps you determine how competitive you are for admission to the law school(s) of your choice, allowing you to make better decisions when it comes to both preparing to apply, and deciding where to apply.

Each Canadian law school has its own unique method for selecting applicants. Schools vary significantly in how much weight they accord to different aspects of your application, from your GPA and LSAT score, to your work history and extracurricular activities, to your personal statement and references. Moreover, some schools will calculate your GPA differently than others, and many schools also offer joint J.D. programs and alternative admissions categories for mature, indigenous or Canadian Forces applicants. These varying admission criteria between schools can make it difficult to determine exactly where you stand.

Our Law School Admissions Assessment will assess your competitiveness for admission at the law school(s) of your choice by comparing your admission category scores from your Applicant Profile Assessment* to the admission criteria and historical applicant data of your selected school(s).

The Admissions Action Plan is designed to make you more competitive for admission to law school. Your lawyer-advisor will develop a personalized admissions strategy tailored to your strengths, weaknesses and admission timeline, as well as your location, interests and goals.

Admissions committees consider far more than you GPA and LSAT score when deciding who to offer admission, including your employment history, extracurricular activities, and volunteer activities. This means you have many different ways in which you can increase your competitiveness beyond your GPA and LSAT score – so take advantage!

Our Admissions Action Plan is designed to do exactly that – allow you to maximize your competitiveness across all admission criteria, giving you the best chance of being offered admission when you apply. Your lawyer-advisor will review your Applicant Profile Assessment and make recommendations to help you improve your score across all admission criteria, with specific focus on your weakest areas. These recommendations will be tailored to your location, interests and goals.

Having access to this knowledge, experience and insight can give you the edge and motivation you need to succeed. That is why, as a Gold member, we offer a second One-on-One Consultation with your dedicated lawyer-advisor. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask any questions you have – about your assessments, the law school admissions process, or even the legal profession.
