Unfortunately, the currently poor economy in Canada has put the area of corporate law in somewhat of a downslide versus some other sectors you may want to consider practicing in. If you have your heart set on practicing corporate law, be prepared to take a lower-level and lower paying position such as an assistant until the difficult times ease. The good news is that experts do expect that things will be on the upswing once again, so hang in there if you can. If you're a US lawyer, don't expect it to be easy to your best bet is to find legal work in the US unless you live very close to the border in a city like New York and work for a "big law" firm that does a lot of international Canadian law.

It also helps to look at what areas are currently growing and what areas are stagnant or even declining. And in fact, corporate law in Canada at present is one of the more stagnant areas of law. To expect to get a job in law at all, much less one whereby you can expect to be an associate, focus on areas that are currently stable or growing such as litigation, insolvency, and labor and employment. Intellectual property, too, especially in areas like biotechnology, are becoming new areas of interest.
