Background: I am Mayank from India, and I intend to move to Canada soon (by virtue of being a permanent resident ). I am 29 years old and I am an India CPA with extensive work experience in commercial law related areas such as, India Centric Fiscal laws (Income tax & GST ), International Tax treaty laws (DTAA's) , Company laws, Foreign exchange management laws and others business regulatory laws , Private and Public trust laws, and Indian succession laws. This experience of worth 7 years has been gained while working with BDO, EY and via independent practice (all three in India). Since I have been exposed to all these areas I have developed a strong affinity for studying laws in more detail and hence the wish to crack LSAT in November. Since I intend to live in Vancouver and the fact that I'd prefer to study commercial laws in detail, I hope to get into Peter Allard School of Law, Vancouver, British Columbia.
My questions are thus:
1. Peter Allard's website states that they accept applications with a median LSAT score of 165. Assuming that i get a lower score than that, based on my work experience is there a chance they'd accept me ? Since I am also not taught in Canada and USA, I believe GPA scores aren't applicable on me (per what I read on the LSAC website )
2. Given my affinity to learn more of commercial laws, are there other suitable colleges in Canada which could cater to my requirements better.
3.Assuming i get a LSAT score of 155, which other colleges should I be looking at both in Canada and USA
P.S-(CPA's are allowed to represent clients here in India for tax related matters)
