Support Canada’s most innovative law school

Together, we will prepare students for the legal marketplace of the future

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

Your support will propel the faculty — already integral to the national energy sector — to become a global destination for the study of natural resources, energy and environmental law, the Canadian leader in lawyering skills development, and Western Canada’s standard of excellence for Juris Doctor programs.
