A law clerk helps lawyers with their cases. Under a lawyer’s guidance, they perform legal and administrative work that is vital to the outcome of cases. They are valuable to firms and the people they represent. If this sounds like your ideal job, or is already your career, this program will appeal to you.

This two-year program is offered in cooperation with the Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario (ILCO) and is designed to enhance your skills as a law clerk, expand your experience as a legal secretary, or provide you with the foundation you need to become a law clerk.

The ILCO sets a provincial examination based on the course curriculum. You must successfully complete this exam in order to earn your certification. It is 100% of your final mark. Examinations are available to all students province wide. Students wishing to sit in each course exam must complete and submit the exam registration form (found in the course materials and online at http://www.ilco.on.ca/) to ILCO, prior to the registration deadline. A passing grade is 60% and a pass with honours is 80% or higher. Note: You must register with ILCO and pay an exam fee of $150 per course in order to write the Provincial Exam, set on pre-determined dates. Grade reports are issued by ILCO and students are advised that the grading process may take up to 90 days from the examination date. A Certificate of Academic Achievement will be issued to students upon the successful completion of the 4 provincial examinations.
