We accept students into our graduate programs across a wide range of subject areas and emphasize a law and society approach. Our Graduate Program in Law and Society welcomes engagement with Canadian, international, and comparative dimensions of the study of law. Our particular areas of strength are:

  • Indigenous legal orders and aboriginal law
  • Constitutional law
  • Environmental law and policy
  • Legal history
  • Legal theory, especially feminist and critical legal theory
  • Market regulation
  • Employment and labour law
  • International private and public law
  • Commercial law

Although research and teaching obligations of individual faculty make it impossible for us to guarantee supervision in these and any other areas in a given year, we do our best to match each graduate student with a faculty supervisor that has depth in the student's chosen field.
