We are proud to report that the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law is among the 100 best law schools in the world! According to Times Higher Education’s 2020 World University Rankings, the Faculty places 92nd out of 190 universities worldwide and 5th out of all Canadian law schools. This is an excellent achievement!
Exposure to multiple modes of problem-solving is essential for developing creative legal minds of the future that are capable of responding to the growing complexities and non-traditional problems we will face throughout our careers.

On November 19th and 21st, 2019, Faculty of Law students had the opportunity to sit in on two federal immigration court hearings. Both hearings were held in the Ian G. Scott courtroom. Students, guest lecturer Laila Demirdache, LLB 1997 and LLL 1998, and professors watched the proceedings behind the soundproof glass wall in the adjoining classroom.
