Hello, 

I wanna apply for jd on upcoming session. My CGPA is 3.55. I haven’t written the LSAT yet. i have few years of job experience as well. Now I'm planning to apply for JD without sitting for LSAT. Is it possible to get admission without LSAT score? What are the possible schools i can apply within Toronto? Thanks

Do you speak french? Well enough to study law in it? 
 

If yes, you can apply to uOttawa’s French JD. If not, it’s the LSAT for you.

It’s called the law school admission test for a reason. McGill accepts students without the LSAT but you have to have a higher cGPA and be fluent enough in French to complete courses. If that’s a bust for you, then you can go over seas but if I were you I’d get through the test like the rest of us did.

The phrasing of this question tells me you haven’t done even basic research into law school or what it entails in Canada. Start with doing that on your own. It’s very easy to find out which schools are in Toronto and what they require.

Writing the LSAT is a necessary condition of attending law school in Toronto.

It might seem daunting but once you start studying it’s actually semi-enjoyable.

Well, one of the most fundamental skills of lawyering (and becoming a law student) is to gather info that are publicly accessible. Every law school in Ontario clearly states that they require the LSAT as a prerequisite to the English JD program, see individual admissions page on OLSAS: https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-guide/

In Canada, there are law programs that DON'T need the LSAT but these are either in French or bilingual (McGill). You arguably can attend one of the civil law schools and ending up practicing in Toronto. However, if your goal is to be a lawyer in Toronto, then you'd better prepare for the LSAT, which most of your future colleagues have studied and taken. It's a hard test but totally learnable.
