Overview

Law and justice program at Algoma U is one of few such programs in Canada. Those that do exist often focus on criminology, rather than on legal traditions, institutions, and practices in their various current and historical forms and concepts. Criminology is the study of the anatomy of crime, specifically its causes, consequences, and costs. Law and justice, however, goes far beyond criminology and provides students with a more well-rounded and holistic degree.

In this program, you will acquire knowledge of the pattern of legal institutions required to regulate our political, social, and economic relations. You will examine topics such as civil, criminal, family, corporate, constitutional, and contract law. You will study conventional, traditional, and alternative forms of justice and dispute resolution, as well as comparative, theoretical, and historical perspectives. The program helps students to understand the law as a multidimensional and complex social phenomenon.

Earn a degree with endless possibilities

You will develop a wide range of skills that apply beyond the study of law and justice. These include the ability to think clearly and critically, write and speak effectively, and undertake primary and secondary research confidently. These high-demand skills can take you to law school, medical school, teacher’s college, and graduate studies.

Learn from judges, magistrates and lawyers

Almost all of the faculty members hold law degrees and some are practicing lawyers, judges, and magistrates in the local community. All have a solid understanding of court rulings and procedures – they’re not just researchers.

Career opportunities

After completing a degree in law and justice, many of the students gain admission to law school and graduate programs, and also diploma programs at the college level. Students are also opened up to an array of career paths and opportunities, such as:
