Late last year, I shared the plans for our expanding footprint, including new OsgoodePD offices at Osgoode Hall Law School at York University campus, as well as renovations at 1 Dundas Street West. It’s hard to believe but phase one is upon us already.
March 22 marks the first of four physical moves for the OsgoodePD team this year. We’re opening new offices (OsgoodePD – Keele Campus) in the law school that will bring our Marketing, International & Full-time Professional LLM Programs, and Finance & Business Operations teams together (pictured below).
Our Full-time Professional LLM students taking classes at the Keele campus will have improved student services facilities and OsgoodePD will be better positioned to support bridging programs for JD students as well as other interdisciplinary initiatives.
At the end of April, those remaining at 1 Dundas will clear out temporarily while the entire 26th floor is renovated with a view to the future. A new community hub and a state-of-the-art multi-media studio will bring this already fabulous space (with some of the best views in downtown Toronto) into the 21st century. Professional LLM classes and some other programs, including CLE Programs, will run in other locations during the shutdown. For up-to-date information on locations, see the Renovation Updates page on our website.
Come September, we’ll be up and running again at 1 Dundas (OsgoodePD – Downtown), welcoming lawyers, paralegals, judges, adjudicators, police, mediators, teachers, nurses, regulators, physicians, tech entrepreneurs, procurement professionals, accountants, engineers, and many, many others through our doors and through our online portal, to our one-of-a kind program. Stay tuned!
