National Committee on Accreditation
The National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) is a standing committee of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. Committee members include administrators of provincial and territorial law societies and of the practicing bar, and representatives of the Council of Canadian Law Deans.
The NCA helps Canada’s law societies protect the public interest by making sure that anyone who earned their legal education and training outside Canada has the knowledge they need to practice law in Canada. They tell people how to improve their knowledge of Canadian law so it compares to the knowledge they would get from an approved Canadian common law degree program.
The NCA does this using a process that assesses your academic training and professional experience. Then the NCA uses a single standard to determine what exams or studies you need to complete to either fill gaps in your knowledge or show that you have the knowledge you need.
NCA Guides is a leading tutoring service provider to internationally trained lawyers. NCA Guides is a registered partnership of five seasoned and experienced tutors who are also referred to as Guides. They employ a “guide” approach because they believe that every candidate has what it takes to successfully challenge the NCA examinations and their part is to guide the candidate to success.
The NCA Guides’ understand the difficulty that the NCA examinations presents and they help candidates overcome the obstacles and difficulties in understanding the course materials and examination format. They do these through intensive classes, revisions, spot tests and exam review workshops.
They do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach, their study sessions are focused on helping candidates understand the course materials in a way unique and personal to achieving their study goals.
