Government of Saskatchewan to Expand U of S Clinical Law Program

Released on April 5, 2023

$200,000 Investment Will Provide Enhanced Student Placement Options

The Ministry of Justice and Attorney General has finalized an agreement with the University of Saskatchewan's College of Law to provide $200,000 in direct funding to the College for its clinical law program over the next two years.

Clinical law programs enable Law students to take on client files under the supervision of practising lawyers and are a standard component of most Law degree programs. Traditionally, the U of S College of Law has worked primarily with a non-profit organization, Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City Inc. (CLASSIC), to deliver the College’s clinical law program, and the Government of Saskatchewan has provided up to $100,000 annually to CLASSIC.

“This investment will maintain the College of Law’s existing clinical law program over the next two years, while laying the groundwork to expand it,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Bronwyn Eyre said. “We will work with the U of S, the College, and other key partners to explore student placement opportunities that include, along with CLASSIC, community-based organizations, law firms, companies, and the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital, as well as the Ministry of Justice and Public Prosecutions.”

“The College of Law welcomes the support of the government for our clinical law programming and looks forward to working with stakeholders to expand our offerings in this important area,” Saskatchewan College of Law Dean Martin Phillipson said.

The University of Saskatchewan College of Law is the oldest Law school in Western Canada and provides both a three-year Juris Doctor degree program and Master of Laws program.
