Faculty of Law Introduction

The Faculty of Law offers a three year Juris Doctor (JD) program. The program provides a solid foundation in core legal subjects, which will prepare graduates for the practice of law. The program is designed to produce skilled graduates who are able to work both independently and as productive members of a legal team; demonstrate excellent communication and problem-solving abilities; are socially responsible citizens; and are able to work effectively and ethically within the Canadian legal system. Each cohort of students admitted to Lakehead University's Faculty of Law will be studying within an environment in which issues affecting northern and rural life are considered integral parts of the curriculum. There is particular focus on skills needed for small firm practice, Aboriginal law and natural resource law.
