The OLSAS Application service fee is $195 plus a law school application service fee of $90 for each law school selection. All fees are non-refundable. The amount paid must correctly reflect the number of law school selections made.
Note: Applicants who submit an English application but wish to include Ottawa French programs should contact OLSAS directly for instructions. Do not submit a second (French) application.
The law school application fee, collected by OLSAS but remitted directly to the institutions, assists the law schools in covering a portion of the costs associated with the admission assessment. Fees are determined by the number of institutions, not by the number of programs selected at each law school.
