Law Society announces new, innovative paths to lawyer licensing
The Law Society announced the names of the providers of its Law Practice Program (LPP) that will provide aspiring lawyers with a new pathway to the Ontario Bar, in addition to an enhanced Articling Program.
Ryerson University will provide the Law Society's LPP in English, while the University of Ottawa will provide the French LPP. Lawyer Licensing Process candidates may choose to either article or complete the LPP.
Additionally, the Law Society has approved another innovative option for fulfilling its licensing requirements: the Integrated Practice Curriculum offered by Lakehead University, as part of its law degree program.
