A spirit of inclusion defines Osgoode, where we welcome students of diverse backgrounds, experience and perspectives.

Your Osgoode experience will be enriched by the close connections you make with your classmates, many of whom will become your lifelong friends.

Student Diversity

Through publishing data from our Annual Entering Class Survey, we not only reflect a commitment to transparency but also one to accountability. We look forward to tracking the evolution of Osgoode’s student body and over time this data will allow us to establish clear benchmarks and goals with respect to accessibility and inclusion. While these numbers reflect important values about how law school ought to reflect the broader community, and are a source of genuine pride, they also demonstrate that there is important work left to do to make the Law School truly inclusive.View the latest Entering Class Survey.
