Option in Public Law

Public Law Option

The University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law (Common Law Section) has introduced a Public Law Option for students enrolled in the JD program. Our Faculty is home to nationally and internationally recognized public law scholars. We offer a rich array of courses in public law and many of our graduates go on to work as public law lawyers.

The concentration will allow students to deepen their knowledge of Aboriginal law, a central part of Canadian public law; to gain practical experience in public law through an internship or similar program; and to expand their knowledge of public law into more specialized areas.

If you are a third year student and you are interested in graduating with the Option, please contact Option Coordinator Professor Yan Campagnolo at Yan.Campagnolo@uottawa.ca or Professor Kyle Kirkup at Kyle.Kirkup@uottawa.ca.
