Ryerson signals intent to launch new law school

November 2, 2016

Ryerson University has written a letter of intent as part of an application to open its own law school, reports Metro. In the letter, the university said that its law school will be differentiated from existing law schools in Canada by focusing on innovation in legal education, providing more opportunities for hands-on learning, and focusing on “new competencies,” such as entrepreneurial spirit, financial literacy, and technological proficiency. Ryerson will reportedly provide a full proposal for the project to its senate in Spring 2017. Metro reports that should the project receive approval, the school will still need additional approval from the government and the Law Society of Upper Canada. Metro
