Complete List of Law Schools in Canada
Law schools in Canada: there’s at least one in every province. In total there are:
- 17 English-language faculties teaching common law;
- 1 French-language common law school; and
- 6 French-language civil law schools.
That combines for a total of 22 law schools, because two offer concurrent programs in English and French. Currently there is no permanent law school in Nunavut, though, or the Northwest and Yukon Territories.
To see which schools are “top rated,” you should check out the Maclean’s law school ranking survey results or the Ivy Global Canada list. Here’s a complete list of all the Canadian common law schools in Canada. (If you’d rather look at a map, click here.)
