Law

Welcome to the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law!

Our three-year law degree (JD) focuses on three mandates:

  1. Aboriginal and Indigenous Law
  2. Natural Resources and Environmental Law
  3. Sole/Small Town Practice with the Integrated Practice Curriculum (IPC)

We blend the study of legal doctrine with the hands-on learning of practical skills. Unlike other law schools, our law graduates are exempted from the articling requirement as a result of the integrated practical skills in all three years of our legal program. Law graduates may immediately sit for the bar exams and enter the legal profession practice-ready.

The Bora Laskin Faculty of Law was a collaborative effort in Thunder Bay to serve the northern Ontario region and providing access to justice in our region.

We are a small community law school with class sizes that allow students and faculty members to get to know each other.
