Program Overview

This is an accelerated version of our Law Clerk program. If you have a previous postsecondary degree or diploma, you will finish this program in nine months instead of four semesters. The program will prepare you to work under the supervision of a lawyer in a fast-paced legal environment. In addition to learning about legal principles and ethics, you will obtain practical, hands-on training that will equip you for success in the workplace. The curriculum focuses on criminal, immigration, intellectual property, personal injury, real estate, corporate and commercial, and family law as well as litigation, wills and estates, etc. with an emphasis on the technological skills needed in these practice areas.

Taught by lawyers and law clerks with excellent professional experience, the program offers students opportunities to engage with current law clerks, leading industry experts, and legal recruiters through workshops, law firm tours, court visits, career preparation events, field placement, and various speaking engagements.

Fluency in English is critical to your success in the program and the legal environment, and there is a strong focus on communicating effectively from the beginning of your program to graduation.
