This year’s Osgoode’s Internationally Trained Lawyers Day (OITLD) will focus on bridging the gap between Canadian legal employers and internationally trained lawyers.

OITLD is a unique opportunity for legal employers, lawyers and law graduates from different countries, and those who may otherwise be going through the process of accreditation or licensing alone, to gather and celebrate internationally-trained talent in Toronto.

This year’s event will focus on bridging the gap between Canadian legal employers and internationally trained lawyers. For those who have attended OITLD previously — there will be sessions on wellness, job search & transitions, networking and how to find your place in the legal market at various career stages.

Employers hoping to create a more inclusive and diverse work place — who may not be familiar with how to incorporate internationally trained talent into their recruitment efforts — can come learn how to assess credentials, readiness for roles and how NCA timelines work with recruitment cycles.
