The University

Western Law Students & FacultyWestern Law is one of Canada’s leading law schools and boasts a number of professors with international reputations with a diverse and collegial atmosphere, where students study and socialize together. Their many student legal and recreational associations contribute to the rich extra-curricular student life.

Set in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, London is the region’s economic, entertainment and cultural hub. With a population of more than 383,000, London is Canada’s 11th largest city and an ideal environment to work, play and live. Affectionately known as the Forest City, London sports numerous treed areas and public parks. There is an extensive trail system that runs along the Thames River, right onto Western’s campus, for walking, running, biking or inline skating.
