Law and Social Justice

The Social Justice Option is designed to prepare JD students currently registered at the Faculty of Law for a future career in public interest organizations or humanitarian work.

However, it will also appeal to students with a general interest in social justice issues. It is also intended to provide access for researchers and the public to ongoing faculty research in the area of social justice.
