Ryerson Law and Business Clinic

The Law & Business Clinic offers upper year students the opportunity to serve clients under the supervision of lawyers and academic coordinator on a variety of business-related legal matters. Students will gain practical hands-on experience as they assist clients with business law matters such as incorporation, drafting the articles of incorporation, reviewing shareholder and partnership agreements, trade-marks, compliance with regulation, and employment law matters. Clinical experience will be supplemented with weekly seminars to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to serve their clients. Clients will include small businesses and entrepreneurs who cannot afford a lawyer.

Application process starts in March during course intentions. For more information, please contact the Academic Director, Professor Pnina Alon-Shenker at pnina.alon@ryerson.ca or 416-979-5000 ext. 7813

Law and Business Co-op ProgramClinic

Co-operative education at the Ted Rogers School of Management and Ryerson University is a program designed to provide students with work experiences that complement their academic studies. It gives them the opportunity to connect their knowledge and skills to the world around them. Co-op integrates a student’s academic learning with workplace learning in fields relevant to the student’s academic and professional goals.

By alternating between academic terms and work terms, Co-op students have the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in their chosen field of study, earn an income to offset the cost of education, build a network of contacts for future employment and enhance their overall academic experience.
