Welcome to the Common Law Program at the University of Ottawa

Dear Incoming 1Ls,

Congratulations and welcome to the English Common Law Program at the University of Ottawa!

We look forward to meeting you on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. We have developed an exciting academic orientation that will prepare you for success in your first year of law school.

Please note that orientation activities are mandatory for all incoming first-year students. These days give you the chance to obtain important academic and administrative information, and also offer you an excellent opportunity to meet the faculty, the staff and your new colleagues.

The English Common Law Program orientation schedule is available here.

Please contact the Director of the First Year Program, Jamie Liew (Jamie.Liew@uOttawa.ca), with any orientation-related questions.

In the meantime, check out this outstanding series of podcasts prepared by our colleague, Professor Forcese, which will be a big help to you in getting ready for legal study. We encourage you to find time to listen to these podcasts before September!

We look forward to welcoming you into our vibrant, diverse and inclusive community.

Professor Jamie Chai Yun Liew, Director of the First Year Program
Professor Rosemary Cairns-Way, Orientation Coordinator
