About the event
Are you stressed about the nuances of applying and entering Canadian law schools? Are you in law school at the present moment and feel like it isn't for you? Are you simply looking to broaden your career opportunities and see what studying law and business at TMU has to offer? ATLS has you covered! ATLS (Alternatives to Law School) was an event held in early November of 2022. This event was organized using a technique called "speed networking," where multiple speakers rotate quickly between different tables that will be occupied by participants eager to learn more about pursuing a career that does not involve their attendance at a law school. Many of the speakers were alumni of the Law and Business program and a few of them had even been a part of the Law and Business Student's Association. Each speaker had expertise in their own unique field, and demonstrated how the legal knowledge they gained while studying excellerated their career. The objective of this event was to exhibit the many opportunities available to students in the Law and Business program, and to alleviate some of the strain and pressure for students who feel confined by a potential visit to Canadian law schools.
