Field of Study:Law (LL.B, J.D., B.C.L.)
Description:The objective of the Common Law Section is to provide a full service legal education, complemented by areas of specialization that reflect our faculty strengths and our location in the national capital. As a professional program, the Section prepares students for entrance to the practice of law or other careers in the public and private sectors where a legal education is required or beneficial. As an academic program, the Section is committed to providing students with intellectual development consistent with their strong academic background. These professional and intellectual objectives are achieved in a manner which is mindful of the privilege and power often accorded to lawyers in our society. Our students are future leaders. Our programs concentrate on more than just the letter of the law. We address the spirit of the law and the ideal of justice. In our view, it is the duty of the program to respect and promote the full range of diversity reflecting the multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-racial characteristics of the women and men in our programs and in Canadian society.
