Dear Students,

One concern that has been raised by many students in response to the “SLS Tuition and Financial Discussion Document: 2006 to 2012” and during the course of the Townhall on March 4th is the impact of tuition and financial aid on accessibility and career choice. Specifically, many students have asked how the burden of financing a legal education has impacted accessibility to legal education at U of T Law and our students’ career choices post-graduation in the past ten years. Furthermore, students have asked the question whether the administration is committed to monitoring such impact on accessibility and career choice.

The SLS Tuition and Financial Aid Committee has emphasized these issues of grave concern to students and continues to have productive discussions with the members of the administration on these issues. To this end, the administration has focused its effort in addressing these concerns and will be releasing additional information on accessibility and career choice at the end of this week.  We are looking forward to updating you shortly. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact your representatives on the SLS Financial Aid Committee, Peter Flynn (peter.flynn@mail.utoronto.ca), Sameer Nurmohamed (sameer.nurmohamed@mail.utoronto.ca), and Aaron Hunt (aaronjhunt@live.ca).
