Ryerson University is aiming to have a new law school up and running by September 2019 if it receives approval from the Federation of Law Societies of Canada and the Ontario government. In June, the Ryerson University senate unanimously approved the proposal for the law school, bringing Ryerson one step closer to being Canada’s newest law school.

In a report sent to the Ryerson senate this summer, which outlines the philosophy and plan of the proposed law school, Ryerson pitches a law school more oriented to “practice readiness and change management” than what it argues currently exists in the legal academy.
