Allard Hall is home to centres of excellence in business law, environmental law and natural resources, Asian legal studies, and feminist legal studies. Explore our four centres and learn more about their influential work.
Centre for Asian Legal Studies
The Centre for Asian Legal Studies hosts cutting-edge research on the laws and legal institutions in Asia, both advancing scholarly analyses of some of the world’s most important legal systems and promoting public understanding as Canada’s economic and cultural ties with Asia-Pacific countries deepen.
Centre for Business Law
The Centre for Business Law at the Peter A. Allard School of Law is building a dynamic community of scholars, students, and professionals who continue to advance the dialogue on contemporary business law.
Centre for Feminist Legal Studies
The Centre for Feminist Legal Studies is dedicated to fostering inclusive feminist engagement through research, teaching, and community-building. We provide opportunities for students, scholars and the wider feminist legal community to come together, build networks, collaborate on research, and exchange ideas.
Centre for Law and the Environment
The CLE is an internationally recognized hub for creating and spreading knowledge, ideas and practices at the Allard School of Law, across UBC and with wider communities about the role of law in securing a healthy environment and a sustainable society.
