Funding for Programme de pratique du droit renewed for five more years!

Posted By Administration, May 14, 2020

Funding for Programme de pratique du droit renewed for five more years!

The Faculty of Law, Common Law Section, is pleased to confirm that funding for the Programme de pratique du droit (PPD) has been renewed until 2025.

The program is offered at only two Ontario universities, the University of Ottawa (in French) and Ryerson University (in English). It offers those who hold an undergraduate law degree (JD or the equivalent) a pathway to licensing through the Law Society of Ontario. Established as a pilot project in 2013, the program has been an unqualified success — it is being offered for a seventh consecutive year.

The PPD at uOttawa is known for its rich content, rigorous and full training, and personalized approach that enables each candidate to be closely supervised during this stage of his or her development. The program was created in French by francophones in the field to prepare future lawyers to better serve their community and excel in their career in both official languages. It builds on a network of over 300 lawyers from Ontario’s francophone community and brings practical benefits to the community (for example, legal clinics).

The University of Ottawa and Ryerson University have both developed their programs according to their communities’ requirements and their own values. They offer different training that meets the diverse needs of the Ontario legal community.
With the evolution of the legal profession, candidates must have the benefit of good alternative solutions to the regular licensing process, to acquire the skills they seek. Today, legal careers no longer follow a straight path — those in the profession have a multitude of job possibilities.

“The Law Society is pleased to support the Law Practice Program and Programme de pratique du droit (LPP/PPD). The LPP and PPD are innovative programs that have successfully demonstrated the effectiveness of offering multiple licensing pathways, while upholding rigorous competence standards. The programs are responsive to the access to justice needs of the diverse communities we serve.”

- Sheena Weir, executive director, external relations and communications, Law Society of Ontario

Congratulations to all those — professors, members of the Ontario francophone legal community, students and support staff — who have contributed to the success of the Programme de pratique du droit. This funding renewal speaks to your success.

To all lawyers who want to have an impact on tomorrow’s legal profession: make the most of the training, talks and networking opportunities the PPD offers!

And to graduates who wish to enjoy the richest, fullest experience with an eye towards licensing or would like to develop hands-on skills to stand out in the job market: the PPD might just be the ideal solution for you. Learn more about the PPD or email Christiane Saad at

Freelance or Short-Term Contract Opportunities for Students

Posted By Administration, May 7, 2020
Hiring tech savvy, focused and motivated law students on a contract basis is an economic way of ensuring that you can continue to meet the demands of your clients in these unprecedented times. We understand that employers are facing significant financial pressures during the current COVID-19 pandemic and that as you weather this storm, keeping on top of client files is more important than ever. We also know that some students have had offers of articling or summer employment rescinded due to the serious financial impact of the pandemic.

The University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law is launching a new initiative to pair employers in need of short-term support with students eager to build on their practical experiences. Starting now, the Career and Professional Development Centre will post freelance or short-term contract opportunities for students. These contracts could, for example, be for a single piece of research, remunerated on an hourly basis, with a set number of hours allocated to the work.

Our intention is to support those in the profession that may need short term assistance but cannot commit to hiring a student full-time for the 2020 summer. These opportunities will also provide students in the legal community with an excellent opportunity to gain freelance experience, build their entrepreneurial skills, and put their practical legal skills to good use while earning some modest remuneration.

If you would like to post a short-term opportunity, please fill out the form. We will make the information available to our students. Please reach out to the Chantal Riendeau ( at the Career and Professional Development Centre with any questions.
