Why Lincoln Alexander Law
Inspired by the great Lincoln Alexander before us, the Lincoln Alexander School of Law has been purpose-built for you, the legal professional of the future. Here, you will be equipped with the training and experience required to meet the evolving challenges that face contemporary society as well as the changing demands of the legal economy. From building a legal community as diverse as the communities you will serve to exploring new ways to expand the reach of representation and justice, our law school is designed to help you advocate for a better world.
Diversity & Inclusion
Together we strive to make the legal profession more diverse as it pertains to backgrounds and perspectives, including Indigenous law. You will be equipped with the multifaceted skills required to serve a broad range of communities, including those who have often been underserved by the legal community.
Access to Justice
Here, you will help to increase legal representation and expand access to justice. From underrepresented communities to small business owners, we aim to make high-calibre legal services available to all Canadians.
Innovation & Entrepreneurship
Gain professional experience beyond traditional legal contexts as you navigate diverse paths to practice and tackle novel challenges in an increasingly innovation-based economy. You’ll learn to embrace an entrepreneurial mindset to better serve your clients and to innovate the legal profession itself.
Integrated Practice Curriculum
Our commitment to increase access to legal services for Canadians starts with training lawyers who are professionally prepared and capable of working in a wide range of environments. Our JD program is designated as an Integrated Practice Curriculum (IPC), which means you will not be required to article in order to become a licensed lawyer.
Technology at the Core
As the world is transformed by emerging technologies, you will learn to examine the effects of technological advancement on the rights and freedoms of Canadians and explore how it can be used to augment the legal profession and expand access to justice.
