Conversations with the President: School Days

Conversations With The President: The state of the profession, Ep 3:

There’s a lot of talk about the articling crisis in Canada – law students are having a hard time finding articling positions, and those who do complete their articles can’t always get a job afterward. Ronit Dinovitzer has been studying what law grads in Canada and the U.S. do once they’ve passed the bar. When Ryerson’s law school opens in September 2020 it will be one of several new law schools in Canada promising a more practice-oriented curriculum. But whether it will add to the articling crisis in Canada remains to be seen. We talk to Anver Saloojee about it.

Ronit Dinovitzer is a professor of sociology at the University of Toronto. 

Anver Saloojee is Ryerson’s Vice-President, International, a full professor in the Department of Politics and Public Administration, and the interim dean of the new law school.
