Osgoode’s Access to Law and Learning (ALL) is a free course to help high-potential, low-income university students prepare for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
Students who participate in ALL gain free comprehensive LSAT preparation including practice tests and online support. In addition, students receive the opportunity to learn the inside scoop on life at law school and in the legal profession through discussions and panels with current law students and legal professionals.
Guest speaker and panel discussion topics typically include:
- The law school admissions process
- Financing a legal education
- Life as a law student
- The variety of career options for law school graduates
Information about the 2020 ALL course will be available online in March. In the meantime, please contact Vicky Faclaris, Recruitment and Admissions Coordinator for more information.
To be eligible, individuals must:
- Be either an official Canadian citizen, permanent resident, protected person or convention refugee;
- Have recently completed an undergraduate university degree (within the past two years), or are currently finishing third or fourth year of a university degree;
- Intend to write the September 21, 2019, October 28, 2019 or November 25, 2019 LSAT for admission to law school in September 2020 or September 2021;
