Reference Letter Instructions
All applicants to the Faculty of Law, including: B.C.L. / LL.B., M.B.A. / B.C.L. / LL.B., B.C.L. / LL.B. / M.S.W.
To be completed by applicant’s referee.                                                                             5
Please give an appraisal of the applicant in terms of academic performance, background preparation, work
habits, personality, and general suitability for the study of law. Please include all relevant information, as an
incomplete evaluation will place the applicant at a disadvantage.

Letters of reference must be written (preferably typed) on official letterhead. If this is not possible, the
reason(s) should be indicated by the referee in the letter of reference. Individuals providing references should
sign the letter, enclose it in an envelope, seal the flap of the envelope, and sign their name across the
flap. The referee should then return the envelope to the applicant. This procedure allows us to ensure that
the letter has proceeded directly from the referee to the Admissions Office. Referees may forward letters
directly to the Undergraduate Law Admissions Office and should do so as soon as possible. The
Admissions Office regrets that it cannot accept references by fax, by e-mail or by telephone.

For all applicants to first year other than CEGEP students, the Admissions Committee will begin
reviewing applications in the middle of September. The deadline to complete applications for
university and mature candidates is November 30, 2008. For CEGEP students, the deadline for the
receipt of the application is March 1, 2009.

Please note that applicants are entitled to review the contents of their admissions files, excluding
letters of reference.
