Osgoode Hall Law School is a law school in Toronto, Ontario. While it was founded by the Law Society of Upper Canada, it now serves as the faculty of law of York University. It is named after William Osgoode, an Oxford University graduate and barrister of Lincoln's Inn who was the first to serve as the Chief Justice of Upper Canada, and then later Lower Canada. Although it can trace its origins to the 1820s, Osgoode Hall Law School was officially established on-site in the Osgoode Hall building, which still houses the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Court of Appeal for Ontario, on Queen Street West in 1889. Following a provincial decision that every law school be affiliated with a university, Osgoode signed an "agreement of affiliation" with York University in 1965 while still operating out of Osgoode Hall. Osgoode has been housed at York University's Main Campus since 1969 (see section below).
The law school is home to the Law Commission of Ontario and the Osgoode Hall Law Journal. Osgoode also hosts Professional Development Programs (OPD) which are located in downtown Toronto at 1 Dundas St. near the original Osgoode Hall building. A variety of LL.M. and Ph.D. degrees in law are available. The current dean of the law school is Lorne Sossin.

Rankings and reputation
Maclean's magazine has ranked Osgoode second amongst Canadian common law schools in 2011, 2012 and 2013. In the 2008 rankings published by Canadian Lawyer Magazine, Osgoode was ranked first in Canada, and was awarded high marks for the quality of its professors, flexible curriculum, and the diversity and relevance of course offerings.
The Original Osgoode Hall Building and the Law School's Current Facilities
For its first eight decades, Osgoode Hall Law School was located at Osgoode Hall at the corner of Queen Street and University Avenue. The structures at Queen and University (the earliest dating from 1832) are still known as Osgoode Hall. They remain the headquarters of the Law Society of Upper Canada and house the Court of Appeal for Ontario.
Currently, the law school is located on the Keele Campus of York University, in the Toronto suburb of North York. In May 2007, Dean Monahan announced plans for an extensive renovation and extension of Osgoode Hall Law School involving a renovation of the existing building, and the addition of an additional wing. The building was designed by architect Jack Diamond with the construction of the renovated building beginning in the summer of 2009. The project had been majorly funded by a $2.5 million gift by Ignat Kaneff, and the building has been renamed in his honor. The law school is referred to by York as its faculty of law.
