First-Year Registration and Orientation

Welcome to the Faculty of Law!

Félicitations! You are about to embark on an incredible journey of learning and discovery.

Please note: this page will be updated this summer for the entering cohort of 2021. However, some of the videos below remain relevant.

2020 Orientation presentations

2 September 2020: We are currently exporting and uploading the various Zoom presentations that were given during Orientation. Keep an eye on this page as we add them.

We start with the one you have requested the most: Money Matters, with Cara Piperni, Director, McGill Office of Scholarships and Student Aid.

21 September 2020: We have uploaded the Masterclass with Professors Gold, Ellis and Jodoin.

Tour of the Faculty

31 August 2020: Since most of our new students cannot visit our buildings this fall, the Faculty's Communications Team has prepared a guided tour, along with a collection of interesting facts about the Faculty of Law.

Meet the SAO

15 June 2020: The Student Affairs Office team has put together a little video to welcome you, and quickly explain what each person on the team does (not to worry, this won't be followed by a quiz).

Orientation will be a little different this year...

13 August 2020: The SAO is organizing a mandatory virtual orientation for August 31 and September 1. We are preparing a meaningful and engaging start of your BCL/JD program.
