Global Esquire Canada is a resource centre for Canadian students who have chosen to study abroad and are obtaining an LLB/JD, LLM or MA Law degree from a top tier UK Law school
In the legal area, academic training given in the United Kingdom makes it possible to enhance one’s international knowledge, while getting acquainted with common law. Many students therefore seize this opportunity to stand out from other candidates at the gates of the largest Canadian law firms. To encourage international education in the UK and to address systemic barriers to legal education in Canada, Global Esquire Canada was founded to make a much needed contribution to the Canadian legal profession. Global Esquire Canada empowered by BlackNorth Initiative is pleased to offer The Global Esquire Canada Mentorship Program which will oversee the counselling and mentoring of up to 25 students per academic year, who are studying a law or law related degree in the UK.
