Lakehead introduces online option for law school students


Lakehead University’s Bora Laskin Faculty of Law will launch a new online study option this upcoming academic year. The new 1L Online Intensive program will allow a cohort of students to pursue their first year of law school through a combination of online learning and four weeks of in-person, land-based learning. The initiative opens up an additional 25 spots for students looking to enrol in Lakehead’s Juris Doctor program. After completing their first year of learning, the online cohort will then study in person for their second and third years. “We believe this exceptional opportunity offers an unparalleled legal education experience, embracing both tradition and innovation,” said Lakehead Bora Laskin Dean Jula Hughes.
