The National Requirement Review Committee of Canada is conducting a review of National Requirements.

The National Requirement Review Committee (NRRC) is conducting a comprehensive review of the National Requirement, which specifies the knowledge and skills required for graduates of Canadian law school programs and internationally trained graduates and lawyers to be admitted to law society admission programs in the Canadian common law jurisdictions.

The NRRC has received input from various stakeholders, including law students, law professors, legal associations, and Indigenous groups. The committee is currently focused on priority issues such as mode of study provisions, skills competencies and experiential learning, responding to TRC Calls to Action, issues related to the assessment of compliance with the National Requirement, and the intersection of the National Requirement and the NCA competency profile. The NRRC will continue to engage with stakeholders and consult on specific proposals as they are developed.
