Lincoln Alexander School of Law at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) is located in Toronto, Ontario.

Degree Program

In April 2019, the Law Society of Ontario approved Toronto Metropolitan University’s application to designate its Juris Doctor (JD) program as an Integrated Practice Curriculum (IPC). This means that graduates will not have to complete LSO’s Law Practice Program or the articling requirement to be licensed as lawyers in Ontario. Currently, the University does not offer an LLM program.

The 3-year JD program includes a mandatory professional placement (four months in the third year), and “immersive bootcamps” that aim to teach students a diverse range of skills, from coding to innovative business skills.


When did the Faculty of Law open?

The School of Law began accepting applications for its JD program in August 2019 for enrolment in the fall of 2020. Applications must be made through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). Visit Toronto Metropolitan University for information on applying for current programs.

Admission / How to Apply

To qualify for admission to the JD program, applicants must have completed a minimum of two years of education at the undergraduate level. Applicant’s will be considered based on their LSAT score, personal statement, application materials and an online video interview.

Toronto Metropolitan will accept 150 students into its law program each year.

Full-time tuition for the Lincoln Alexander School of Law is about $21,100 per year. Extensive financial aid is available through scholarships and awards. Students enrolled in Ryerson’s JD program are also eligible for OSAP.
