PLTC academic support instructor gives Aboriginal students priority

The Benchers have clarified through a new Rule 2-44.1 that the PLTC tutorial program, provided through a part-time academic support instructor, must give first priority to students of Aboriginal heritage and second priority to all other students. This program was established specifically to address barriers facing Aboriginal law students and will be submitted to the Human Rights Commission for certification.

The rule change is included in the May Members' Manual amendment package and posted on the Law Society website.
