Hi there, for the purpose of Express Entry, you should do your ECA at any of the listed organization such as WES.

Take note however, if you plan to practice as a lawyer in Canada, you will be subject to qualification requirements under the Federation of Law Societies of Canada (FLSC). . Please look at https://flsc.ca/ and find out more about how to qualify as an "Internationally Trained Lawyer".

Hello,

please refer to the WES website to understand more about the ECA process (for the purpose of Express Entry).

Bear in mind that a separate evaluation will need to be done by FLSC (for purpose of assessment of qualification for the legal profession). Information about this can be found at the FLSC website. https://flsc.ca/

You can also reach out to Global Lawyers of Canada: https://glcanada.org/ to find out more information about the qualification process.

Global Lawyers of Canada (“GLC”) is a national professional association that promotes a diverse and competitive legal market in Canada by representing and supporting internationally-trained and globally-minded lawyers through advocacy, community engagement and professional development.

Hi, I have the following educational credentials:
B.Com (3 Yrs) from Mumbai University
L.L.B (3 Yrs) from Mumbai University

Which ECA should I apply for to get a Master's Equivalency/ Professional Degree Equivalency? WES or IQAS? Please suggest in case of any other ECA website.

Note: In Covid 19 scenario, which would be a faster ECA?

Hoping for responses and your help.

Dear Priyankara, can you please advise if your wife’s credential got as recognised from WES ? Because my husband also only have attorney from law college like your wife , and Wes says it is not equivalent to completed Canadian education
