Faculty of Law

Together, we will connect legal scholars with community leaders

Uniquely positioned in a city and province that are world leaders in the resource and energy sector, the faculty embraces the integral role it plays in Canada’s energy capital.

We have a vision to be the global destination for the study of natural resources, energy and environmental law. We aspire to be the Canadian leader in lawyering skills development. And we aim to be Western Canada’s standard of excellence for Juris Doctor programs.

Our faculty members are among the finest legal scholars in the nation. Their work is cited by academics, judges and governments around the world.

Our staff is the epitome of professionalism. Our students are exemplars of the values of leadership and social commitment at the core of our school’s ethos since our foundation almost 40 years ago.

Together, we will connect the teaching and research excellence of the brightest legal scholars with community leaders and innovators among high-tech and other industries.

Law Progress

40 years of student opportunity

As Ucalgary Law celebrates our 40th anniversary, we are aiming to bring together our community to bring in 40 individual gifts to create an endowed scholarship for a current law student who demonstrates warmth, vitality and a strong passion for the legal profession.

This initiative is called the 40 for 40 campaign, and gives everyone the opportunity to make a contribution, no matter how small, and to build a strong future for the law school.

New course provides insight into energy market regulation

UCalgary students in the International Energy Lawyers Program now have the unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with a variety of regulatory approaches used to manage North American energy markets.

This is thanks to the Dentons North American Energy Law Study Tour, made possible through a generous sponsorship from Dentons Canada LLP.

The course will allow students in the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Law to gain practical industry experience by travelling to Texas, D.C. and Fort McMurray, and to network with key players involved in the regulation of Alberta’s energy industry.

Law students teach teens

The Faculty of Law chapter of Pro Bono Students Canada “Yes Means Yes” project is helping high school students to understand their sexual rights and responsibilities.

Yes Means Yes is aimed at students in grades 9 through 12. The workshops are designed to help students understand their rights and responsibilities as they start to navigate their approaching adulthood, particularly when it comes to their relationships with others.

The Yes Means Yes program is based on materials created by the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF).
