Twelve Common Law students are among those to receive grants from the University of Ottawa’s Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP).
The UROP provides undergraduate students with unique and exciting opportunities to explore cutting-edge research at the University of Ottawa while they define their professional goals. By participating in UROP, a student receives a $1,000 award and devotes, during one academic term, at least 50 hours to a research project conducted by the faculty sponsor they have chosen. Each faculty sponsor receives $500 in research funds to support their involvement in the program.

- Chris Buhuri, “How international trade agreements have tackled the new phenomenon of data protectionism” (sponsored by Professor Wolfgang Alschner)
