Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Licensed lawyers can complete their annual CPD requirements while completing their degree. All our courses are eligible for 12 Substantive hours through the Law Society of Ontario, and many courses are eligible for Professionalism, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion or diversity hours. If you’re from another Canadian jurisdiction, it’s as simple as getting in touch with our CPD team – we’ll connect with your provincial law society to determine equivalency.
As degree student you’ll have access to job postings via Osgoode’s career services, the portal that top firms use for recruitment.
Complimentary and Discounted CLE Programs
OsgoodePD offers a broad range of continuing legal education (CLE)/professional development (PD) courses. Taking a PD course is a great way to get timely information on an emerging area of the law, policy updates or to meet your CPD requirements. As an LLM student, you’re eligible for one complimentary CLE program per academic year as well as a student/alumni discount.
