About

Opening in September 2020, Ryerson Law is the culmination of years of planning, legal consultation and approvals, but it started as a belief that this institution’s innovative approach to learning should be applied to the study of law. 

There are major shifts currently taking place in the Canadian legal market – driven in large part by technological and entrepreneurial forces. We’ve created a new law school because the legal system needs a new kind of lawyer. The overriding purpose of Ryerson’s Faculty of Law Juris Doctor (JD) program is to train practice-ready lawyers who are equipped with the entrepreneurial skills required to increase access to legal services for all Canadians.
