Proposal for Extraordinary Tuition Increase

In accordance with the Alberta Tuition Framework, the University of Alberta Faculty of Law is consulting with the Law Students’ Association and Faculty of Law students to discuss the possibility of an exceptional increase for tuition starting in Fall 2022.

No decisions will be made until student consultations have been completed. Dean Barbara Billinglsey welcomes open and honest feedback from the student body on this proposal and can be reached directly at

As students are heading into exams, opportunities for discussion have been organized for after the exam period, starting in early May.

If the possibility for this increase moves beyond the consultation phase, it would still require further institutional and government consideration and approval.
