Curricular Streams

Students who want to concentrate their studies in a particular subject area can enrol in one of the following curricular streams:

  • International, Comparative, and Transnational Law
  • Labour and Employment Law
  • Litigation, Dispute Resolution, and the Administration of Justice
  • Tax Law

Functions and Benefits

Through a thoughtfully designed sequence of courses, the curricular streams give students a comprehensive, challenging, and well-rounded education in their chosen area of specialization. The curriculum streams also:

  • help students build the critical lawyering skills to engage effectively with difficult and complex problems
  • encourage intellectual collaboration
  • deepen students’ expertise, exposing them to significant theories, principles and conceptual frameworks in their chosen subject area.

In their third year, students in each curricular stream complete a capstone course, which includes a major research and writing exercise to help consolidate, deepen and enrich their understanding.

Academic Guidance and Oversight

Each stream is supervised by a faculty convenor who provides personalized guidance to students on their course of study. Faculty convenors also administer the regulations governing the stream; they have broad discretion to permit individual adaptations of the stream, such as the granting of credit for non-program courses or enabling students to adapt the order in which they complete requirements.
