Internationally Trained Lawyers

Are you an internationally trained lawyer (ITL) planning to work in Canada?

CRIEC is here to help! This online guide with short easy to follow videos will show you the possibilities — and how to get there.

As an ITL, you have options, which include:

  • Practicing law in a law firm, an in house legal departments or legal clinic. These roles require accreditation in Canada.
  • Alternative careers including near-law and non-law options. These roles do not require accreditation, but may require further training.

CRIEC is here to assist as you consider your career choices, seek accreditation if needed and get employment ready!
