Entrance to Jackman Law Building

An academically gifted and engaged student body: Our students are highly educated, extremely diverse and deeply committed to justice at home and around the world. Academically, they are the strongest student body in the country and they rank among the top in North America.

A world-renowned faculty:  Professors at the Faculty of Law are leading experts in their fields who regularly shape the most important policy issues and debates in our society. More than 50 full-time faculty and 7 visiting scholars from across the globe create an intellectually robust and exciting academic environment.

An array of challenging academic programs: Our JD, LLM, SJD and GPLLM programs offer broad and diverse curricula that allow students to tailor their programs of study to meet their individual needs and ambitions. U of T also offers an array of exciting combined degrees options and certificates of specialization

An unmatched  selection of public interest clinics and programs: We believe that an outstanding law school is one that demonstrates extensive public engagement with a broad cross-section of society, and a strong commitment to social responsibility in local and global communities. As such, public service is a critical component of the faculty’s mission and of every law student’s legal education.

A career advantage: At the Faculty of Law, our students are hired by the top employers in Canada, New York, and London. Each year, approximately 95% of our JD students secure articling jobs. This hire rate is by far the best in the country, and reflects the high opinion the legal professional holds for our students and the Faculty of Law’s program.

A fabulous city: Toronto is Canada’s largest urban centre with a population of 2.5 million people, and a richness and cultural diversity that no other city in the world can match. Located in the heart of old Toronto, the Faculty of Law is just steps away from the provincial legislature, the Ontario Court of Appeal and Superior Courts, and the country’s largest legal and financial district.

"The leading minds in law": World-class scholars

Now-graduated students of the University of Toronto Faculty of Law talk about why they loved their professors - some of the world's leaders in legal scholarship and current legal issues who are also, just as importantly, approachable and engaged with their students (with additional comments from former Dean Mayo Moran).
