This seminar is a survey course on legal issues that particularly impact Indigenous peoples in Canada. It focuses on issues that will be relevant and useful to lawyers in a variety of practice areas, through the lens of reconciliation.
Administrative Law is the law that governs the executive branch of government/the administrative state. This course primarily explores the tensions between: preserving the rule of law and the rights and interests of those affected by administrative action; and honouring legislative intent in delegating decision-making authority to administrative actors.
The course is ultimately intended to help students learn how to conduct a motion and a trial in a family/civil case.
The instructors have designed case scenarios, which contain factual/legal issues intended to assist in the development of skills necessary for good advocacy.
Advanced Mediation is an experiential learning, graded course designed to train students to become competent mediators. The second year Negotiation course is a pre-requisite and attendance is mandatory. By the end of the course, working with a co-mediator, you will be able to conduct a simple private law mediation session. This course will be of interest to students with backgrounds or interest in conflict resolution and those who wish to practice as mediators or ADR neutrals upon graduation.
