Indigenous applicants who are given an offer to attend are required to attend the Indigenous Pre-Law Summer Orientation Program. This program was created to increase retention of Indigenous students in the field of law. The program is delivered on campus the summer before the first-year student orientation and is hosted by faculty and staff at Windsor Law as well as visiting Law professors. 

 Benefits of the summer program are: 

  • Offer a sense of community to incoming and current students, Indigenous faculty, and staff   

  • Offers an introduction to legal research and writing which can assist in first year courses 

  • Sensitive areas of study for Indigenous people are also examined and taught from the Indigenous perspective 

  • Opportunity to meet with the Dean of Windsor Law, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous faculty, staff and other admitted students in a personal setting creating bonds and personal connections that will last throughout your law school experience and beyond!
