Transfers from another countryA lawyer seeking to be called to the bar in British Columbia who has obtained a law degree in a country other than Canada or a law degree in the Civil Code must first obtain a Canadian LL.B. degree or a Certificate of Qualification issued by the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA)(Law Society Rule 2-27(4)).
You may then apply to enrol in the Law Society Admission Program.
A lawyer with practice experience in a common law jurisdiction outside Canada may apply for a reduction in the nine-month articling term or an exemption from all or part of the Professional Legal Training Course (PLTC).
If you are not resident in Canada, please consult the Canadian immigration authorities at an Embassy or High Commission office in your area with regard to immigration requirements.
For more information, contact Member Services

看了一个英国的律师的评价,感觉加拿大对外国律师很排斥,即使是英国的律师,去加拿大也得重新学起,还得实习。

这是专业保护主义,有利于保护加国本土律师的利益,但对外国执业律师绝对不公。共同法系(普通法系)和大陆法系律师又远比所谓社会主义国家的律师幸运,他们可以通过一个专家评审委员会评定予资格证书,而免除重新学法律本科的强制性要求,同时还可以申请免除九个月的实习。但中国律师哪怕是资深律师,欲在加拿大执业,必须重头开始学加国法律,通过法律本科,还得经十二个月的实习后才有可能。因此中国律师,在加国连律师助理的机会都非常难。

英国现在开放多了,根据今年政策,外国律师只要参加转换考试,通过后就可以执业,不用实习了。
