Juris Doctor in
Nunavut Law Degree Program Nunavut Arctic College
The Law Degree Program is a one-time offering of a four-year program being delivered primarily in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Graduates of the program will possess the necessary skills to meet the growing demand for lawyers. It will increase access to justice for Nunavummiut. Historically, criminal law has been the area of law dominantly practiced in Nunavut. With more legally trained Inuit, it is hoped that other areas of law will start to take more shape in our jurisdiction, such as corporate law, and family law.
The Government of Nunavut has made education a priority in our current mandate. The delivery of a law degree program through the University of Saskatchewan will give Nunavummiut the best opportunity to learn about and engage actively in the legal profession.
