Osgoode Hall Law School has a robust and diverse academic program along with a multitude of experiential education learning opportunities.

The Learning and Leading Series (LLS) builds on this base with unique offerings for Osgoode students that will help them develop skills for work in the legal profession or other post-Graduation endeavours. The LLS is open to all Osgoode JD and full-time LLM and PhD students.

The LLS is not part of the academic program and does not qualify for any academic credit. Students who attend 90% of the classes and complete a short assignment to the satisfaction of the instructor will be given a certificate of completion. Each program has a maximum enrollment of 40 students.

Students who participate in LLS programs will:

  • Gain hands on experience they can use in a variety of environments
  • Use a problem solving methodology in simulated scenarios similar to those found in legal practice
  • Learn from experts in the field
  • Receive a certificate of completion upon successfully finishing a program
