b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_2013rebecca_lockwood_new.jpgI’ve recently found myself reminiscing for a simpler time in life — a period when responsibility wasn’t as great, decisions had less impact, and life just didn’t seem so darn complicated. This nostalgia was prompted by what I’m calling the “3L crisis.”

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_2013rebecca_lockwood_new.jpgI was one of those students who was hit with a mega invoice from the Law Society of Upper Canada a few weeks ago. As I finished tallying the numbers, my mouth agape, I tabbed from the LSUC web site onto Facebook to see if it was just me who was surprised by the licensing fee bill. Thinking I would leave a message in the Class of 2014 group to gather my classmates’ opinions, I was met with my answer immediately upon opening my newsfeed: expletives, CAPSLOCK, and series upon series of exclamation marks described the general reaction to this LSUC fee. Yes, everyone was appalled by the bill and yes, it was significantly higher than normal — 79-per-cent higher to be exact.
