The January 2004 issue of Canadian Lawyer, pages 19 to 23, includes a report card on law schools. I found it interesting that, for four of the top five schools, the library was cited as a key factor in the schools' strengths. Those schools are:
University of Calgary (ranked #1)
Osgoode Hall Law School (York University) (#2)
University of Toronto (#3)
McGill University (#5)
For the other, University of Victoria (#4), the emphasis on legal research, including the full-year legal research and writing course, was given commendation.
