The Schulich Law Ambassador program connects admitted and prospective candidates with current law students. Ambassadors can provide you with general information on the application process, living in Halifax and transitioning to law school. They can help you make informed decisions about your educational options and introduce you to resources available, while sharing their unique experiences as a law student.

Ambassadors are current students with diverse backgrounds and experiences that can provide you with honest and thorough impressions and information about the Schulich School of Law. Ambassadors provide tours of the Weldon Law Building, participate in recruitment and alumni events, speak at open houses, participate as guest panelists, and attend Weldon Welcome Days Events. 

You can get in touch by emailing
