Osgoode’s Internationally Trained Lawyers Day (OITLD)

About the Event

Save the date for Osgoode’s Internationally Trained Lawyers Day (OITLD) on Wednesday, May 27, 2020.

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.
