Reasons to go to TRU?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Looking to hear from current or past TRU law students. Based on your time in the program, what are some reasons you would give for choosing to go there? Or some of the pros and cons?

I chose TRU because it’s a small, tight knit faculty that’s really collegial - and it’s a reputation that’s known within the legal community. You’ll get to know your profs (and I have) on a personal level and they’re willing and receptive to support you as much as they can. 

The alumni network is also similar. I’ve never had an alumni brush me off, and in fact every alumni interaction I’ve had led to them offering as much help as they could (going over application materials, connecting me to other colleagues from TRU or their coworkers etc.). 

TRU places well in the recruit in BC and AB (Calgary is stronger than Edmonton mind you but Edmonton network is growing). The faculty also has a higher articling placement rate than UVic and UBC - if you want a law job you will get one, the only ones who don’t get articles are the ones who choose not. 

Con? Look, tuition is high and it sucks- but you’ll get a job and be able to pay it off. Course selection can suck at times, but the faculty is receptive to course ideas and has a good array of sessional profs. 

In all, I am beyond happy to be at TRU and wouldn’t change my law school experience at all.
