UCalgary law school to pre-admit U of King’s College students through partnership

January 22, 2019

Canadian Lawyer reports that the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Law will pre-admit students who complete the Foundation Year Program at the University of King’s College in Halifax, an intensive course of study that focuses on classic texts by Homer, Dante, and Shakespeare. “The thing that the Foundation Year Program does for students and the students that it attracts, is precisely to build in them a confidence in their ability to read, understand, digest, analyze and make arguments about difficult material that you actually are having to master in a fairly fast-moving world,” said FYP Director Neil Robertson. Canadian Lawyer adds that FYP students will be admitted to UCalgary depending on their LSAT scores, extracurriculars, and GPA. Canadian Lawyer (NS | AB)
