Bachelor of Arts in Law and Justice
The Law & Justice Program is a multi-disciplinary program, and courses are taught by faculty with expertise in law and law-related disciplines (Indigenous studies, political science and political economy, history, philosophy, psychology and sociology), and also by faculty who are experienced lawyers and judges.
Unlike law school, which trains people to be lawyers, this undergraduate program will help you to understand law as a multidimensional and complex social phenomenon. Of course, it also provides an excellent foundation for law school studies. As a Law & Justice student, you will acquire general legal knowledge and skills, as well as study in greater depth particular areas of the field that interest or concern you. You will study conventional, traditional and alternative forms of justice and dispute resolution, as well as comparative, theoretical and historical perspectives.
The Law & Justice program at Algoma University offers three- and four-year degrees in Law & Justice both as a single major (single specialization) or double major (combined specializations) with other subject areas (political science, Indigenous studies, history, sociology, psychology, English and others). A minor is also available and can be combined with any other majors.
