As the issues facing society become increasingly complex, there is an even greater need for individuals with the legal training and ability to meet such challenges. The main focus of the Faculty of Law is to instill in students the spirit to pursue the practical education needed in an ever-changing legal environment. The analytical skills acquired through the study of law extend beyond the legal field and touch on a wide variety of qualifications and employment opportunities, including the path to a career in public service. The Department of Law prepares students to tackle future legal issues by expanding both their legal knowledge and legal thought processes - the development of the “legal mind.” Taking a minor in English gives students an even stronger grounding in that language and rounds out their legal education with a broader international outlook. -
