A note for prospective Indigenous students
The University of Saskatchewan College of Law will offer Spring and Summer Law Course for Indigenous Students again in May 2024.
Enrollment will be open to those who have been admitted as an Indigenous student to a Canadian law school in Fall 2024.
The course will be offered remotely with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous delivery. In addition to learning the substantive legal content, an emphasis will be placed on assisting students with developing the skills essential for law school success.
Admission process and applications open January 2024.
The College of Law Spring and Summer Law Courses for Indigenous Students - An eight-week course offered to provide Indigenous students from across Canada an opportunity to study Property Law before starting law school. Most Canadian law schools recognize the Spring and Summer Program for a first-year Property Law credit in law school. Having this course prior to law school equips the law student with legal skills to be successful in law school and lightens the course load in first year.
Students who will be attending the University of Saskatchewan College of Law in Fall 2024 will receive credit (5 credit units) upon successful completion, thereby reducing their course load in the 2024/2025 academic year. Students attending other institutions are encouraged to seek letters of permission to enrol at the University of Saskatchewan to ensure that credit for the course will be recognized.
