A new kind of law school has arrived

It’s time to set a new precedent

The law is worthy of its name only when constant effort is made to redefine it. Our democracy is built on this possibility, on the idea that we can always think bigger about representation and inclusion. Ryerson Law challenges the status quo to ensure that the lawyers of the future are equipped with the diversity of skills required to represent the needs of all Canadians.

Graduates take diverse paths to legal practice, and we've built our law school to meet the needs of a new generation of lawyers who will provide access to legal services in innovative and affordable ways. Our program will train lawyers who are tech savvy, entrepreneurially minded and passionate about social justice principles.
