The Bora Laskin Faculty of Law is one of only a few Canadian law schools, in addition to Windsor Law and Thompson Rivers Law School, that chooses not to publish the average or median LSAT score or GPA (Grade Point Average) for the entering class.
On November 21, 2013, the Convocation of the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) announced that Lakehead University was successful in its application to proceed with an Integrated Practice Curriculum (IPC) model of legal education. Students enrolled in the three year JD program at Lakehead will complete integrated practice training and do placements within their three-year degree. Upon completion of their JD degree Lakehead graduates will not need to article or complete any other course of study. The Faculty was the first law school to gain approval for such a program, which inspired a similar program at Ryerson University.
