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 break down barriers for LGBTQ community
In early 2019, the Faculty of Law became the latest law school in Canada to participate in the Trans ID Clinic program launched by Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC). Clinics will provide free legal information and assistance with name change and gender marker change applications in a space that strives to be trans-positive, non-judgmental, anti-oppressive and inclusive.
