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.
Faculty of Law campaign goal
Progress to date:
Giving back to the community
UCalgary Law understands the importance of giving back to the community.
We encourage students to do so throughout their law school careers and to continue the practice when they begin their professional careers.
Through all of our ambitious goals, we remain committed to our community by undertaking professional and community service in law-related activities.
Initiatives such as the Public Interest Law Clinic and the Faculty of Law chapter of Pro Bono Student Canada provide opportunities to students while benefiting the community.
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).
