Law Clerk


The part-time Law Clerks Program is offered in co-operation with the Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario. Examinations will be written for the four parts after completion of each course. Examination fees are not included in the course fee. It is strongly recommended that students have a minimum of three years’ experience in a legal environment, as the courses are very intense. Employment opportunities afforded by the Law Clerks Program include the legal departments of trust companies, local, provincial and federal governments, and larger commercial and industrial firms. Students should visit the Institutes website at for additional details. This program is available online.

Note: Students have up to 7 years to complete all requirements.

You may enroll in a Continuing Education course at Canadore College if you are 19 years of age or older or if you have earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma/Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.

Most college level courses require textbooks; textbooks are not included in the course fees. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase any required textbooks.

Textbooks are available at the Campus Shop for in class, Contact North, and iLearn/D2L courses. The Campus Shop does not carry most OntarioLearn textbooks. OntarioLearn textbooks can be purchased at

As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved.
