Every year, beginning in 2019, U of T Law hosts a one-day conference for currently enrolled Black undergraduate students at ANY university. 

The goal of the annual Black Future Lawyers Conference is to provide participants with information and different viewpoints to help them make an informed decision about being a lawyer, how to get into law school, and how to thrive when they are there.

Through a dynamic lecture, informal discussions and panel presentations, students engage in a fun and interactive program that focuses on law school admissions, law school culture, the legal profession, and the value of a JD degree. Attendees connect with practicing lawyers (many of them U of T alumni), law students, faculty, admissions staff, and other future law students.

The event is a partnership between the U of T Law Admissions Office, the U of T Law Black Law Students Association, and the Law School Application Centre (LSAC).

The Black Future Lawyers Conference is part of the Black Future Lawyers program at the Faculty of Law.

This program is part of a suite of initiatives at the Faculty of Law to encourage students, at the high school and post-secondary levels, to actively think about applying to law school and learn about career options a law degree can provide.
