The fundraising program New Frontiers, is designed to secure meaningful Canadian experience for Internationally Trained Lawyers and National Committee on Accreditation Candidates (ITLNCAs). The Canadian experience will be completed in one of the following stages: (i) summer jobs (ITLNCA OCIs), or (ii) internships and transition placements (Articling/LPP, where applicable). Placements are to be procured within Legal Clinics and/or not-for-profit legal service providers that support access to justice areas of law.
The Fundraising link will continue to be available here. Thank you to the generous donations from the community and legal profession and professionals the program has raised $2,435 (less transaction fees).
Funds are to be allocated in the placement period: 2023-2024
“There is little or no difference between endurance runners and Canada’s internationally trained lawyers. During their long-time journey preparing for the race, they both feel drained, they both face debilitating doubts, and for some reason, they both keep going with unbreakable resilience. They push through the pain, they somehow quiet their doubts, and they keep their goal in sight: crossing the line. And finally, when they cross the line, which they will, they tell themselves: huh! I did it! And now what? What’s my next challenge?” Antonio F. Urdaneta
