October 10, 2017

What differentiates Osgoode Professional Development’s International programs from the competition? Breadth, depth, community & support.

Our mission is to provide the largest and broadest array of programs for internationally trained lawyers in Canada. From looking to get licensed to practice to gaining a North American graduate level legal experience, OsgoodePD’s International Programs provide a solution.

Our International Programs are designed to provide students with the support & community to successfully achieve their legal goals. Academic advising and career development are some of the services offered to International students, along with opportunities to expand their community and begin to build professional networks.

What is the Osgoode experience of our International students?

“NCA process is a long and difficult journey. It’s not about ticking the boxes and what you need to know. It’s about the 1:1 time you get with faculty and professionals. Instructors at OsgoodePD are very accessible and take the time to provide you with constructive feedback. They are really available to help you.”

Director, International Wealth Compliance, Scotiabank
Specialization: Professional LLM in International Business Law

“Living in Canada is a great experience, an opportunity to do something different in life. Learning about a different legal system is important as a lawyer. It gives you a different perspective. There was always help within Osgoode with my professional career. The support I received from Osgoode was amazing and definitely contributed to my success.”
