Pushing legal research in bold new directions

Our faculty are engaged in research across the full spectrum of legal scholarship. Topics, methods, audiences — you are sure to find someone to motivate, teach, and inspire you.


Our faculty and students publish papers and books that shift the theoretical and applied terrain within the legal profession and beyond.


We are home to three research institutes known nationally and internationally as centres of rigourous, engaging, and relevant research.


Our faculty are regularly asked to provide advice to government, expert witness testimony, regulatory advisory consulting services, and commissioned reports. They are also regularly asked to sit on expert panels, advisory committees, and tribunals. Through this and related methods of knowledge mobilization, we play an active role in moving our work from the ivory tower of the academy to the streets of law and policy in practice.
