Clinical and Intensive Programs at Osgoode

The clinical and intensive offerings at Osgoode Hall Law School are the most extensive in Canada and amongst the most innovative in the world!

Osgoode has a rich history in Clinical and Intensive education, spanning over four decades. The Criminal Law Intensive and the Intensive Program in Poverty Law at Parkdale Community Legal Services were the first full-term, 15 credit, programs offered in North America.  For the first time, these programs placed law students in real workplaces, providing them with an opportunity to learn by doing.  

Osgoode has continued to build on the success of these programs, and now offers students 14 different clinical and intensive programs to choose from.  The subject matter, structure and character of each program is unique.  In addition to increasing the number of full-term intensive offerings, innovative programs which continue throughout the entire academic year and more specialized programs offered for fewer credits, have also been introduced.   

The number and diversity of clinical and intensive programs offered at Osgoode provides students an opportunity to customize their experience to fit their interests!
