ULeicester Canadian Law students face challenges with degree accreditation

August 13, 2021
After participating in online classes due to the pandemic, students studying at the University of Leicester’s Canadian Law program are concerned that their education will not be recognized by the Canadian National Committee on Accreditation (NCA). The NCA has reportedly said that ULeicester’s use of online classes does not meet NCA’s in-class requirements, and remains adamant that law students must receive one full year of in-person learning to have their degrees accredited. Students who are about to enter the second year of the two-year program will not have their degrees recognized in Canada. “We really can’t do anything,” said law student Lorene Richardson. “We have to either defer, or pretty much drop out of the program and try to figure out if we’re going to different university.” CBC (International)
