Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Legal Studies, General
Description:The program in Law and Justice encourages a broad 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, its historical development, and its relationship 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.

The program in Law and Justice is one of only a few in Canada in which one can study law as a complex human and social phenomenon. Students are encouraged to consider legal issues from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, both by the core faculty who all have interdisciplinary backgrounds, and through law-related courses in history, Indigenous studies, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology. The Ontario Ministry of Education recognizes law as a teachable subject. This program is offered in both English and French.
