  • Black Future Lawyers
    Supporting black students who aspire to
    go to law school

 

The University of Toronto Faculty of Law (UofT Law) believes that legal education should be accessible to talented students from all segments of Canadian society.

 

Black Future Lawyers (BFL) is a collaboration between UofT Law, our Black Law Students Association, members of our Black alumni community, and the broader legal profession. Funded by UofT’s Provost’s office and UofT Law, BFL offers supports and engagement opportunities to Black undergraduate students who aspire to go to law school and become lawyers. BFL’s goal is to increase the number of Black students who attend law school and join the legal profession.

 

BFL’s programming for Black undergraduate students includes:

  • Mentoring and job shadowing with Black lawyers, judges and articling students
  • Invitations to attend special workshops, lectures and other events at UofT Law
  • Admissions and financial aid info sessions for Black students
  • Our annual Black Future Lawyers conference
  • Access to our free LSAT prep course, where eligible
  • A special application process to UofT Law for Black candidates
  • And more…
