Peter A. Allard School of Law

The Peter A. Allard School of Law is committed to being one of the world’s leading centres for legal education and research and to harnessing the power of its faculty and students to make a positive impact on society. Allard Hall’s light-filled spaces and modern technology provide the foundation for enhancements to our teaching and research that will have impact far beyond the walls of the building itself. The Faculty’s new strategic plan seeks to leverage investments in the building to assist us in moving from one of Canada’s leading law schools to one of the world’s great centres for legal education and research. Meeting this goal will require enhancements to our teaching, an expansion of our faculty complement, and new investments in student financial aid.
