About the Schulich School of Law
The Schulich School of Law plays an extraordinary role in the fabric of Canadian legal education.
We are a national law school, with our students coming from and returning to every region.
We graduate leaders. Our alumni hold every form of government office, teach in Canadian law
schools, innovate in the provision of private and public sector legal services and in business,
advance policy in the executive branch of government, render decisions on courts across the
country, and offer service to non-governmental bodies and non-profit and community
organizations. We have always been known for and proud of our commitment to unselfish
public service, in the Weldon tradition.
We embrace the interdisciplinary opportunity of working in a university, we value the creation
and dissemination of new knowledge, and we are firmly committed to students and to teaching
and learning excellence. We are conscious of the difference we make to law reform,
adjudication, legal service, and community engagement at home and around the world. We
value the contributions of the founding communities in this province, the Mi’kmaq Nation,
Acadians, African Nova Scotians, and British, and we open our doors to the world.
