U of T law students sharpen advocacy skills in criminal law program focused on appellate and Supreme Court cases

A University of Toronto Faculty of Law externship seminar course, thought to be unlike anything offered by other Canadian universities, is helping balance the scales of justice, as students lend their talents to some of the best criminal appeal lawyers in Canada.
 
In just four years of existence, the legal arguments and research generated through the student course work have weighed in on a string of benchmark appellate and Supreme Court victories, including decisions on privacy, sentencing and insanity pleas.

Faculty of Medicine program opens opportunities to Black MD students

Growing up, Chantal Phillips was not sure whether medical school was for her. It wasn’t because she wasn’t interested, but because she couldn’t see anyone like herself practising medicine.
 
Now in her first year of the MD program at the University of Toronto, she reflected on how race and poverty made medical school seem unattainable at a recent public consultation session on the Black Student Application Program (BSAP). The program launched in early 2017 and welcomed its first cohort this fall.
