The University College of the North and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Law will soon offer a Pre-Law program that is designed for Indigenous and northern students who are interested in pursuing law school. This programming was developed through a partnership between UManitoba Law, the Northern Bar Association, the Law Society of Manitoba, Legal Aid Manitoba, and MB Provincial Court Judge Todd Rambow. The Pre-Law program covers the competencies needed to begin law school. Students will also have access to enhanced advising, student counselling, mentorships, and coaching supports and will be prepared to take the Law School Admission Test. “Providing students with opportunities to complete Pre-Law in northern Manitoba will help address shortages in the legal profession in the north,” said UCN President Doug Lauvstad.
