The principal objective of the Faculty of Law of The University of Western Ontario is to offer students a liberal education through the critical study of legal and related materials, in preparation for the private practice of law, for government service, and for kindred vocations.
The Faculty of Law is strongly committed to excellence and to diversity. While the Faculty believes that excellence in academic studies is the best evidence of ability to succeed in the study of law, it also believes that achievement in other areas may indicate potential for success in legal studies. Accordingly, our application policies allow applicants to show their potential in a variety of ways and are designed to produce a mix of students with diverse experience.
To prepare national and international leaders in the practice of law, in business and in the public service; to further the interests of the rule of law both in Canada and abroad; to create an environment in which the values of scholarly enquiry flourish.
