Lakehead Law School gets provincial green light

July 6, 2011

Lakehead University is officially launching Ontario’s first new law school since 1969 (and Northern Ontario’s first ever). In hopes of addressing a lack of law graduates in Northern Ontario, Lakehead promises its newest faculty will target local and aboriginal students and focus on aboriginal law. Provincial funding of $1.5 million will go toward refurbishing a historic local high school Lakehead took over in 2008, which will be home to the new faculty. Enrolment is expected to begin in September 2013. Lakehead News | Ontario Media Release | Globe & Mail
