Admission Requirements

Ryerson Law seeks to create a vibrant and diverse academic environment. To ensure that our student body represents the fullest possible range of social, economic, ethnic and cultural perspectives, the Admissions Committee considers many factors. We welcome applications to either the General or Indigenous categories for admission consideration. All files are reviewed holistically.

Holistic Admissions Process

The committee takes into account all of the following:

  • All post-secondary studies
  • The best LSAT score
  • Personal statement
  • Reference letters 
  • An autobiographical sketch and resumé to determine an applicant’s potential fit for our program
  • The completion of an online interview (through a separate link that will be sent once the OLSAS application is complete), allowing applicants to provide us additional information about themselves and their interest in Ryerson Law

Any information provided is considered in a manner consistent with the Ontario Human Rights Code. Incomplete applications are not considered. 

Applicants With Fewer Than Three Years of University 

Ryerson encourages applications from individuals who may not have had the opportunity to complete traditional education pathways. Applicants who demonstrate through their non-academic experience an ability to successfully complete the JD program will be considered if they meet each of the following conditions: have not attended university or have completed fewer than three years of university (as of June 1 of the admission year); and a minimum of five years of non-academic experience (as of September 1 of the admission year).
