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:

Our particular areas of strength are:

  • Indigenous legal orders, governance, comparative Indigenous rights
  • Aboriginal law and treaty rights
  • Constitutional law
  • Critical pedagogy
  • Environmental law and policy; water law
  • Legal history
  • Legal theory, especially feminist, post-human and critical legal theory
  • International private law
  • Intellectual and cultural property law

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