Robson Hall is renowned for promoting a rigorous, dynamic, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of law. Robson Hall offers a three-year program that emphasizes a balance between doctrinal, clinical and perspective courses, each of which contributes to an understanding of the law, its application and role within a civil society. Students gain the practical experience that they require in the field by working closely with professors and practicing attorneys. The Bachelor of Law degree (LL.B.) permits the holder to take the Bar Admission course of any Canadian common law province. The Bar Admission course, together with articling with a law firm or a government agency, takes approximately one year following graduation from the Faculty of Law.
The Faculty contains facilities including E.K. Williams Library, the Legal Research Institute, the Moot Court and a state-of-the-art computer classroom. Students learn in an environment that develops skills in legal research, writing techniques, fictional trials and appeals, courtroom defense and examinations
