Black Future Lawyers
The Black Future Lawyers program (BFL) engages Black undergraduate students who are interested in studying law. BFL also offers supports to students who are navigating the law school application process, and those who are beginning their studies at UofT Law.
BFL’s goals are to: 1) increase the representation of Black students at UofT Law and at law schools across Canada; and 2) help Black law students to thrive at U of T Law and build the foundation for successful careers in the legal profession.
Black Future Lawyers (BFL) is a collaboration between U of T Law, our Black Law Students’ Association, members of our Black alumni community, and the broader legal profession.
BFL’s programming for Black undergraduate students includes:
- Mentoring and job shadowing with Black lawyers, judges and articling students
- Invitations to attend special workshops, lectures and other events at U of T Law
- Admissions and financial aid information sessions for Black students
- Our annual Black Future Lawyers conference
- Law school application support, including access to the law school’s free LSAT prep course
Thank you in advance for your generous support.
