UCN, UManitoba Faculty of Law announce Pre-Law programming for students in the north

The University College of the North and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Law will soon offer a Pre-Law program so that Indigenous and northern students can prepare to enter law school. This programming was designed in partnership with representatives of UManitoba’s Faculty of Law, the Northern Bar Association, the Law Society of Manitoba, and Legal Aid Manitoba, as well as Provincial Court Judge Todd Rambow. The programming equips students with the competencies needed to begin law school; includes enhanced advising, student counselling, mentorships, and coaching supports; and prepares students for 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.
