The NCA process:
Individuals seeking accreditation must apply to the NCA for an assessment. The assessment can take anywhere between 4-8 weeks, but some of our students have received their assessments within two weeks of submitting a completed application. Once the NCA assesses your file, you are then notified of any assignments or deficiencies. Assignments can be completed either through NCA administered examinations or through a Canadian law school. Currently the minimum number of exams an individual can be assessed is 5 and currently, an applicant has 5 years to complete their assignments. If there are deficiencies in your application, then you may be asked to attend a Canadian law school to make up for those deficiencies.
Once you have satisfied the assignments set out in your assessment you then receive a certificate of qualification. This certificate allows you to start the licensing process with the law society of the province you wish you practice in (not including Quebec).
