Option in Aboriginal Law and Indigenous Legal Traditions

The Aboriginal Law and Indigenous Legal Traditions Option is intended for JD students wishing to gain in-depth and practical experience in Aboriginal law including some exposure to Indigenous peoples’ legal traditions. The strong research interests of many of our professors support a particularly rich array of courses in Aboriginal law and Indigenous legal traditions. The Aboriginal Law and Indigenous Legal Traditions Option will appeal not only to students interested in Aboriginal law, but to those who wish to understand Indigenous legal traditions and how they can be recognized alongside common law and civil law within Canada’s legally plural society. 

Should you have any questions about the Option please contact one of the Aboriginal Law Option Coordinator, Professor Darren O'Toole at darren.otoole@uOttawa.ca.
