External Applicants

Toggle secondary navigation

The deadline for external applications is the first Wednesday of April for the upcoming Winter Program.

Interviews will take place between mid-April to mid-May. Those residing outside Toronto will be contacted by telephone. In addition to academic ability and demonstrated commitment to working with and for Indigenous communities, we are looking for good judgment, flexibility, integrity and the ability to work with people from different cultures.

We expect to be able to send out offers during the last two weeks of May.

External students who are admitted to the Program will have to obtain a Letter of Permission from their primary law school. The semester at Osgoode Hall Law School merely stands in for what would have been a regular semester of study at their own law school. Therefore, participation in the Program does not delay graduation. Every student’s law degree is issued by their primary law school.

A complete application should include the following:

  1. Submission of the online Application Form below
  2. A copy of your most recent law school transcript
  3. A five-page sample of your academic writing (this may be an excerpt from a paper)
  4. CV indicating past work and volunteer experience
