Faculty of Law
The University of Victoria is considered one of the leading research-intensive universities in Canada, ranking consistently among the top universities overall in national surveys. Widely recognized for excellence in research, teaching, and community engagement, UVic provides innovative programs, experiential learning, and a rich and supportive learning community for more than 20,000 students, including 2,500 graduate students, 850 faculty, and 3,800 employees in Victoria, British Columbia - one of Canada's most beautiful and livable cities.
The University of Victoria Faculty of Law is widely acknowledged as one of Canada's finest law schools. Outstanding faculty, a collegial atmosphere, a stimulating intellectual environment, and a strong commitment to social justice at home and abroad make UVic Law a leader in the interdisciplinary study of law.
UVic Law offers educational excellence in a supportive environment. In a recent survey, a remarkable 97 per cent of our first-year law students judged their learning experience to be "good" or "excellent". Much of that success is attributable to UVic Law's supportive learning environment and the leadership and expertise of outstanding instructors and respected legal scholars.
