Welcome to the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law

Lakehead University Bora Laskin Faculty of Law Dean Jula Hughes' headshotDr. Jula Hughes, Dean

We are proud to serve Northern Ontario as an innovative regional law school. Our graduates are ready to be called to the bar and practice on graduation as our Integrated Practice Curriculum combines the rigorous study of law with skills training in all three years of study.

As a law school community, we are committed to making a difference, providing access to justice, and leading the way for northern communities. We implemented mandatory courses in Aboriginal and Indigenous laws before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission called all legal educators to action. We continue to grow our offerings in these areas through leadership and close collaborations with local First Nations communities and Indigenous organizations.

We embrace three mandates in our curriculum: Aboriginal and Indigenous Law, Natural Resources and Environmental Law, and Sole/Small Town Practice with the Integrated Practice Curriculum (IPC).

Our legal clinic responds to the legal needs of clients across the region and provides important experiential learning opportunities for our students, including the chance to work with Indigenous clients and develop cultural competence skills.

Our focus on Natural Resources and Environmental Law is well situated within Lakehead University, a national leader in Natural Resource Management and Environmental Studies.

Explore our web site to learn more about our innovative offerings and opportunities.
