Law Society reforms Bar admission process
Convocation approved a recommendation to significantly reform its
admission and licensing program for lawyers who wish to enter the
legal profession in Ontario.
The new process for admission to the Law Society of Upper Canada
will consist of:
- A skills and professional responsibility program and
- Two licensing examinations: a barrister examination and a
solicitor examination, each including a professional
responsibility component; and
- An articling program.
