Our motto is “Through Law to Justice.” It’s what we live and breathe.

We are committed to critical thinking, professionalism, ethics and experiential education that extends beyond the conventional classroom and library experiences.

As one of the oldest, largest and most distinguished law schools in Canada, Osgoode has been the leader in developing the principal features of the modern law school curriculum. Our Juris Doctor, Graduate and Professional Development Programs offer extraordinarily rich and varied perspectives on law taught by the country’s leading scholars and finest practitioners.

Acknowledgment of Indigenous Peoples and Traditional Territories

Osgoode Hall Law School recognizes that many Indigenous nations have longstanding relationships with the territories upon which our campuses are located that precede the establishment of Osgoode Hall Law School and York University. We acknowledge our presence on the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of New Credit, the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Métis Nation of Ontario.
