It is a pleasure to add my own words of welcome to the Graduate Research portal at Allard Law. As then Associate Dean Ljiljana Biukovic highlighted when this portal was launched two years ago, our graduate programs have a long and distinguished history. Over the decades, graduate students from all over Canada and around the world have joined and contributed to our vibrant community. Thinking back to my own days in law school, I remember the thrill of having two LL.M. students from the Philippines and New Zealand in a seminar on Indigenous Peoples in International and Comparative Law. Hearing them discuss their research and being able to interact with them in and out of class had a profound impact on my way of thinking about the law and its ability to advance social justice.
Working with leading scholars across a variety of fields, and employing a diverse range of methodological and theoretical approaches, our graduate students conduct research that has enhanced the understanding of law and its possibilities both within the scholarly community and in the broader community, nationally and internationally. Though this site we invite you to learn about the research of our current students and our alumni, and to join us in celebrating their achievements.
