Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Legal Studies, General
Description:The Law and Justice program examines the rationale of the law and its link to economic, social, and political ideas and conditions. Students develop a broad, critical understanding of the nature, role, and function of Canadian legal and judicial institutions and of the relationship between law and justice. They learn to look at the law in an interdisciplinary context as a complex human and social phenomenon.

The general objective of the Law and Justice programs is to encourage a broadened critical understanding of the nature, role and function of our legal and judicial institutions. We promote an understanding of why the law is as it is, the historical development of the law, the implications of the law, and the relationship of the law to economic, social and political ideas and conditions. This approach clearly distinguishes us from Law Schools, whose mandate is to prepare students for the practice of law in accordance with guidelines established by the Law Society.
