The course will cover legal issues related to Aboriginal peoples in both the criminal justice system and the family law systems.
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.
This course is intended to help you learn how to conduct a trial of a criminal case, although the skills taught are applicable to civil cases as well. The exercises are based upon case files, which include statements, exhibits, forensic reports, investigative notes and wiretap evidence. Those problems are designed for a jury trial, but the skills are necessary for any legal audience.
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.
