Canadian Law School Rankings

The law school rankings resource is useful, yet rather incomplete, considering I live in Canada and hope to attend a Canadian school...

What're the chances of one being set up? We don't have that many up here

    I'm in Canada also, hello fellow Canadian!

    Check out the MacCleans Law School Ranking - I have linked the 2013 ranking below.

    Hello, I live in Canada as well. From what I read ranking would not be much help because people are mostly advised to study in a province that they want to practice. And many provinces have 1 or 2 law schools

    Do you guys have a publication that runs rankings for Canadian schools? Ours are based off of US News which is the more-or-less definitive ranking source for US schools.

    As far as I know and searched online, there is/was only Macleans Law School Ranking. It seems they gave up on publishing the ranking for 2014 and 2015. However almost all of Canadian law schools release their applicant profile. It would be really helpful for admission purposes if you could rank them base on their numbers. Having a graph like the one 7Sage has for U.S school could be a good reference for all Canadian applicants

    There are only 23 law schools (including civil law schools) in Canada. Having a ranking system, even remotely close to the U.S system, seems unlikely. The general consensus on is that rankings are pointless for Canadian schools. Getting a JD from U of T (school with the highest entrance stats) will not give you better chances of getting a job in Alberta against U of C grads. Your employment prospects will be determined by how well you do in LS, as opposed to where you got your degree from. Having said that, however, here is a thread that might be useful for all those applying to Canadian schools.

    This as well...
