Admissions - General Information
Thank you for your interest in UVic Law. We invite you to browse through the Why UVic Law? section to learn more about why our Faculty has consistently been ranked as one of the finest law schools in Canada.
The Law Society of British Columbia offers a helpful guide to students who are considering a legal career.
The Faculty of Law admits a relatively small first-year class each fall and offers three admission categories (Regular, Special Access and Aboriginal) to ensure that the student body reflects the diversity found in Canadian society. Applications are also considered from students in other law schools or with foreign law degrees who wish to attend the Faculty of Law as upper-level students.
