Research at Robson Hall
The University of Manitoba is the largest, most comprehensive, and only research-intensive post-secondary educational institution in Manitoba. The University was established in 1877, and as such, it is the oldest university in Western Canada, located in Winnipeg, the heart of Canada.
As the oldest University in Western Canada, we have a long and proud tradition of achievement and innovation in research. Building on this tradition of scholarly excellence, Robson Hall Law School, the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba, was established in 1914. We are a vibrant research community. Faculty members’ research is well-respected and published internationally, nationally, and locally. Robson Hall research contributes greatly to the advancement of legal and socio-legal knowledge and the development of public policy across Canada and the globe. For our most recent research report, please see the Robson Hall Alumni Report – April 2014.
