Student at See Yourself Here

About 200 high school students from across  the Greater Toronto Area attended the popular and annual "See Yourself Here" event, on March 1st, a 'getting into law school boot camp' for students from backgrounds under-represented in the Canadian legal profession and law-related careers.

Talking to law students really gave me insight into possibilities for my future. I also loved the lecture by Professor Niblett, as it gave me an idea of how university will work. Overall, it was a great experience. -- Gr. 10 student

It's a full-day of interactive learning from Faculty of Law current students and young lawyers from diverse backgrounds, and faculty and staff, to offer a complete overview of the law school application process, courses, career prospects and student financial aid.

Originally started as an initiative of the Black Law Students Association, See Yourself Here has grown into a much-anticipated law school event. Students from across the Greater Toronto Area are welcomed, especially Black students, other students of colour, students from low-income backgrounds, students whose parents did not attend university, and LGBTQ students.Group of three students participating at See Yourself Here

I really enjoyed talking with the law students. I felt like I really learned a lot of genuine advice. I felt relieved because I felt like I could relate.” -- Grade 11 student
