Canadian law schools working to attract more diverse students

August 21, 2012

A free LSAT preparation course for low-income students offered by the University of Toronto's law school is one example of a number of measures Canadian law schools have taken over the years to increase diversity in their programs. In recent years, the University of Victoria has opened up 25 spots per year in its law school for students from indigenous or exceptional backgrounds. As part of its application process, UVic's law school places a strong emphasis on a personal statement from applicants on their desire or challenges they have faced on the path to law school.
