The University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law has created the Black Future Lawyers (BFL) program to engage and support Black-identified undergraduate students interested in law, as well as current Black law students. Inspired by the U of T Faculty of Medicine’s Black Student Application Program, BFL will offer opportunities for students to participate in special events, conferences, lectures, mentorship, and job shadowing. “We hope to establish BFL chapters at every major university in Canada, building a community for Black students no matter where they are,” said U of T student Joshua Lokko. “It’s a great step towards ensuring that future generations of Black law students see law school as a place where they belong and can be successful.”
