Lakehead University's Faculty of Law officially opened in September 2013. Its founding dean is Lee Stuesser. It is Canada's newest law school and is the first Canadian law program to integrate licensing into its curriculum; its graduates will be qualified to practice law without requiring an articling process. It is also the first Canadian law school to not mandate that students complete a course on foundational Constitutional law. Lakehead Law is unique in its approach to create street ready legal practitioners, and its leadership has stated that law schools in Canada have to do "better" in breaking down the division between law school graduate and useful working lawyer.
The Bora Laskin Faculty of Law is the only Canadian law school that does not publish a profile on the entering class. The school has refused to publish the average or median LSAT score or GPA (Grade Point Average) for the entering class.
