Here is a short article which critiques the fact that foreign-trained lawyers can often qualify for Canadian immigration, but once they are here they have a difficult time practicing law.

A large amount of the RCICs we meet were lawyers before coming to Canada and then join the ICCRC so they can practice law, but only in the immigration field.

As RCICs, this is extremely interesting because it reminds you that it is important to manage your clients expectations for the careers they will have once they immigrate to Canada. While an ECA verifies the degree is at the Canadian equivalent, qualifying for a regulatory board to be able to practice law in Canada is an entirely different matter.
