Program description

Law (BA)

Carleton is home to the oldest and largest BA program in law in Canada. In the program, you will acquire a strong understanding of the dynamics of law, including its rules, agents, institutions and power structures. You will study legal theory and its application in everyday life and you will be taught by award-winning researchers and extensively published professors. Carleton’s proximity to Canada’s important public institutions, such as the Supreme Court of Canada, Parliament and the Department of Justice can lead to unique work and volunteer opportunities for our students. As an Honours student, you will have the choice of a concentration in Law, Policy and Government; Business Law; or Transnational Law and Human Rights.Co-op options are available for qualified students in Law, Policy and Government and Business Law. A study-abroad option is also available, as the Department of Law and Legal Studies participates in an innovative exchange program with Sheffield Hallam University in the U.K.
