An Investment in Your Future

While it is true that most law students across the country go into some debt to attend law school, we think that it is a very sound investment. At the Faculty of Law, our students are hired by the top employers in the Canada, New York, and London, and earn internationally competitive salaries. 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 legal professionals hold for our students and the Faculty of Law’s program.
