And if you are a member in Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or the Yukon and attend law school in Canada… your annual CBA membership is FREE! You are eligible for membership if you’re enrolled full-time at a recognized Canadian law school and have not been called to a Canadian Bar. Student membership is also open to Canadian citizens studying at a recognized foreign law faculty and to National Committee on Accreditation students.
