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.
