Solve problems in the real world.

Applying theoretical knowledge in real-world settings deepens your understanding of how the law functions and enhances your readiness for practice. Before you graduate, you’ll have many opportunities to serve clients directly, develop practical legal skills and build professional networks. You leave Osgoode not only with a prestigious degree but with the confidence that comes through hands-on learning.

Clinical legal education is centred upon a pedagogical approach in which students take on responsibility for real client matters, guided and supervised by lawyers who are skilled in their fields. Central to this approach are opportunities to connect practice experiences to theory through the process of reflection. Along with their clinical instructors and program directors, students explore issues of professional identity and values, skill development, contextualized problem-solving, and the systemic impacts of law.

Our clinics and intensives are funded in part by the Law Foundation of Ontario.
