Crown Law Office - Criminal (CLOC) and the Lincoln Alexander School of Law Mentoring and Inclusion Program

The CLOC mentorship program provides students with direct access to one of Canada’s premier criminal law offices. Mentors provide students with an introduction to all aspects of criminal practice, from arguing appeals in the Court of Appeal for Ontario and the Supreme Court of Canada, to advice on conducting jury trials. In the law school’s inaugural year, 1L students were matched with CLOC lawyers, enjoying direct mentorship relationships as they navigated their first year.
