On January 30, the UBC Black Law Students' Association (BLSA) together with Allard Law will be hosting a conference for Black undergraduate or graduate students who are thinking of pursuing a career in law.
Our experiential learning program plays a significant role in the JD curriculum at the law school, while also addressing barriers to legal services in BC. We offer a wide-range of programs, from community-based clinics that foster critical lawyering skills and expose students to access to justice issues, to competitive moots that build essential advocacy skills.
Located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people, the Allard School of Law began its First Nations Legal Studies Program in 1975. Since then, the school has grown to become a leader in Indigenous legal education and scholarship.
From our perch on the Pacific Rim, Allard Law reaches the world. Our scholars are engaged in global conversations, and publish around the world in all areas of legal research. Our JD program was the first in Canada to include compulsory international law studies, our graduate program draws top students from around the world, and all students have opportunities for international exchange and learning.
