JD Program Overview

At the Peter A. Allard School of Law our students receive a first-rate legal education that balances traditional areas of practice with emerging fields of specialization.  First year consists of a common curriculum with classes in Canadian Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law and Procedure, Property Law, Torts, Legal Research and Writing, Public Law and Transnational Law.  Most classes are taught in groups of approximately 45, providing students with more opportunities to receive detailed feedback from their professors than is possible in larger classes.  Diverse evaluation methods are used to accomodate a broad range of learning styles.  We offer a wide range of courses and many opportunities for specialization, international exchange and experiential learning.  We invite you to learn more about the J.D.
