DescriptionMost of today‚Äôs controversial issues — whether stemming from political conflict, technological developments, economic inequality or other social changes — are expressed and mediated through law. The Legal Studies program offers you the opportunity to critically explore the social roles of law and its connections with community, government and society from different theoretical perspectives. The program demonstrates a commitment to promoting justice by cultivating active citizenship skills, critical reflection, and respect for diversity, pluralism, equality, and equity.

You will be stimulated to appreciate the law in its plural — formal and informal — forms and to evaluate it from diverse perspectives. You will be challenged to question whether law equally responds to the needs of all groups in society, including Indigenous people, racial minorities, immigrants, the poor, women, members of the LGBTQ+ community and persons with disabilities. You will study law in relation to topical themes, including national security, globalization, technology and the environment. You will explore various ways of resolving social conflicts — from traditional court processes to alternative methods of dispute resolution such as mediation.
