Ryerson University offers an alternative to traditional articling through its eight-month Law Practice Program (LPP) for licensing stream candidates.

The first four months of the program includes a simulated work experience with online training and experiential learning with files developed by practising lawyers.

Students learn to interview clients, conduct research, draft documents, letters and agreements, develop an approach, conduct negotiations, argue motions, conduct examinations and cross-examinations, and manage a practice.

During the subsequent four-month placement, students work directly with employers such as large institutions, large and small firms, specialty boutiques, governments, clinics, and sole practitioners throughout Ontario.

Ryerson LPP works with the Law Society of Ontario and the legal community, including an alliance with the Ontario Bar Association.

The Ryerson LPP sources for AdvocateDaily.com are managing director Chris Bentley, program director Gina Alexandris, and assistant director Andre Bacchus.
