Supporting the Lincoln Alexander School of Law

large group of students in masks

The Lincoln Alexander School of Law was founded in the confidence that this institution’s innovative approach to learning would be valuable for the study of law, and that Canada needs a new kind of lawyer: driven to expand the reach of justice; embracing a nimble and entrepreneurial mindset; and with the technological skills to meet evolving social challenges and serve unmet legal need. Since first opening our doors to students in 2020, many generous individuals, corporations and foundations have joined with us to support the realization of this vision.

Our donors create opportunities through their generosity. They fund awards and scholarships that increase access and reward excellence. They advance ground-breaking research and advocacy initiatives in key areas including Racial Justice, Indigenous Law, and Law and Technology. And they strengthen the student experience through mentorship, professional development, health & wellness programming, mooting competitions and more.

How can I make an impact?

Awards and Scholarships

Establish and support scholarships and awards to increase access to legal education for students from underrepresented groups. Awards and scholarships provide necessary funding and the kind of encouragement that leads to success.

Mentoring and Coaching

Strengthen the student experience with increased access to academic and career success supports such as mentorship, professional development, health & wellness programming, mooting competitions and more.

Research

Advance ground-breaking research, knowledge mobilization and advocacy initiatives in key areas including Racial Justice, Indigenous Law, and Law and Technology.

Integrated Practice Curriculum

Help support our innovative JD program, where we've embedded professional skills training and real world experience so that our graduates don’t have to article to become licensed lawyers. Our Integrated Practice Curriculum melds theory and practice at every turn - including a co-teaching model that pairs professors with practitioners, a focus on current and emerging technologies, mentorship opportunities, clinical and experiential learning, and professional placements that go beyond traditional legal contexts.
