Law schools

The Law Foundation of Ontario has provided funding to Ontario’s law schools since 1975. The Foundation’s support is dedicated to access to justice initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation grants close to $2 million in total to Ontario’s law schools. This funding helps support the schools’ efforts to:

  • Offer experiential learning opportunities for students so they can provide legal assistance to members of the community and community service organizations
  • Foster diversity within the legal professions and advance the legal professions’ understanding of diversity
  • Respond to the access to justice needs of the local community
  • Foster law students’ commitment to lifelong learning, high ethical standards, pro bono work, and work that serves the public interest
