Osgoode Hall Law School Wordmark

Osgoode Hall Law School is the faculty of law of York University in Toronto, Ontario.[2] It is named after William Osgoode, an Oxford University graduate and barrister of Lincoln's Inn who was the first Chief Justice of Ontario, initially as Chief Justice of Upper Canada, then also of Lower Canada.[3][4] Although it can trace its origins to the 1820s, Osgoode Hall Law School was originally established by The Law Society of Upper Canada in 1889.[5] It was originally housed at the original Osgoode Hall building which still houses the Law Society of Upper Canada. Following the Law Society's decision that every law school be affiliated with a university, The Law Society and Toronto's York University signed an affiliation agreement in 1965. Osgoode has been housed at the university's Keele Campus since 1969.[5][6]

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.[7] A variety of LL.M. and academic Ph.D. degrees in law are available. The current dean of the law school is Lorne Sossin.[8]

Rankings and reputation[edit]

Canadian rankings
Maclean's Common Law[9] 2


Maclean's magazine has ranked Osgoode second amongst Canadian common law schools in 2011, 2012 and 2013.[10][11][12] In the 2008 rankings published by Canadian Lawyer Magazine, Osgoode was ranked first in Canada,[13] and was awarded high marks for the quality of its professors, flexible curriculum, and the diversity and relevance of course offerings.[13]

The first year class of Osgoode Hall Law School in 1944

For its first eight decades, Osgoode Hall Law School was located at Osgoode Hall at the corner of Queen Street and University Avenue near the University of Toronto but it was not affiliated with the university. In 1969, after a decision by the Ontario Ministry of Education requiring law schools to be affiliated with a university, the Osgoode Hall Law School relocated to the campus of York University that is now called the Ignat Kaneff Building, while retaining a small downtown campus in central Toronto.

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.

The law school is housed in a building named in honor of donor Ignat Kaneff.

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.[14]
