Are you staring down the tighter-than-ever articling market with fear? Well, the Law Practice Program (LPP), taught in English at Ryerson University, is another option — and they won’t turn you down. Launched to offset the dwindling number of articling positions, the LPP is an alternative route to help all qualified law grads in Ontario to get licensed.
The LPP, which was created four years ago, starts in August every summer and runs for eight months. If you want to learn more, Ryerson’s LPP team is holding information webinars on February 22 and March 22, and in-person sessions at the following schools next month:
- March 8 – University of Windsor – Career Fair
- March 10 – Queen’s University – Career Fair
- March 15 – Osgoode Hall Law School – Third Year Presentation
- March 20 – University of Windsor – First Year Presentation
- March 23 – Western University – Career Fair
You can also read our past coverage to see if students think the LPP is any good and what employers have to say about LPP grads. Plus, we put Chris Bentley, the executive director of the LPP at Ryerson, in the hot seat to respond to concerns students had about the program last year.
