Description

Osgoode Hall Law School at York University announced Sept. 27 substantial new investments in financial accessibility to ensure that a greater number of students are able to access legal education.

Following on the heels of a $1-million investment in new financial aid funding in 2015 that allowed for the creation of the first-in-Canada Income Contingent Loan Program (ICLP), and the awarding of 50 bursaries a year over two years to commemorate Osgoode's 50th anniversary at York, the Law School is now investing a further $200,000 this year to expand the ICLP from five to seven students annually. The duration of the pilot program will also be extended from five to seven years to the year 2022.
