See Yourself Here provides high school students from diverse backgrounds with a chance to learn about the law school admission process and the legal profession. Participants attend inspirational speaker sessions, educational workshops, and a networking reception with law students, alumni and members of the legal community. See Yourself Here began as an initiative of the Black Law Students Association in 2008 and has expanded to become an annual event that includes law students and participants from a broad range of equity-seeking communities that have historically been underrepresented in law schools and the legal profession.

See Yourself Here 2019 Event Date TBD.

See Yourself Here for Indigenous youth

See Yourself Here for Indigenous youth

On Friday, November 3rd, 2017, the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law hosted the first See Yourself Here exclusively for First Nations, Métis and Inuit youth. We partnered with Level, a community organization that works against injustice and supports projects that advance equality in rights and opportunities. The Faculty of Law and Level have extensive experience working with Indigenous Youth and it is our intention to host this event with respect and acknowledgement of Indigenous cultures and histories.

See Yourself Here attendees learned about Canadian colonial as well as Indigenous laws. Students learned what is required to get into law school and had an opportunity to meet current Indigenous law students as well as alumni who are now practicing lawyers. Youth participated in a mock trial run by Indigenous and non-Indigenous folks who work in the Canadian justice system. Finally there was great food, lots of fun and a give-aways.
