UBC Faculty of Law graduates have not only assumed leading roles in the Canadian judicial system (in British Columbia and nationally) and in the legal profession, but also in the business world, in politics, in government, in the community and in the academic world.
Legal education at UBC reflects the perspectives and research interests of our outstanding faculty, and of the many diverse groups that constitute our student body. UBC's J.D. program is one of the most innovative in Canada, and the international climate and the research strength of the Faculty is enhanced by one of the largest graduate programs in the country, which includes a Ph.D. in Law as well as an LL.M. program.
Students also have the opportunity to become involved in a wide variety of student-run organizations and activities, including two law reviews (the UBC Law Review and the Canadian Journal of Family Law), competitive moots at the local, regional, national and international levels, and the Law Students Legal Advice Program, which provides free legal advice to members of the community under the supervision of volunteer lawyers.
Every year many of the very finest students in Canada choose the UBC Faculty of Law as the place where they will pursue their legal education. We invite you to decide if UBC Law is for you.
