The Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (CARL) advocates on various issues concerning refugee policy and law. Being involved in CARL at the student chapter and national level is a great opportunity to gain expertise in litigation, research, advocacy, and education surrounding refugee rights in Canada.

The CARL U of T Chapter has an established relationship with FCJ Refugee Centre, giving our members the unique opportunity to volunteer and work on real cases, even in their 1L year.

CARL student chapters participate in CARL’s work through independently organized events and projects from CARL National. Members of the CARL U of T student chapter are a part of a network of law students across the country. If you're interested in getting involved please email
