Comments about Bachelor of Arts (Combined Honours) in Law and Human Rights - At the institution - Ottawa - Ontario

  • Objectives
    The Department of Law programs reflect the growing demand for legal studies outside the professional LL.B., placing law and legal issues within a social context. Our courses move beyond the study of legal rules, to examining what we know about the law and how it works in our society. You'll acquire knowledge of the underlying dynamics of law and legal studies, including an in-depth understanding of its rules, agents, institutions, and power structures. Studying law in all these different facets is what defines the strength of the programs at Carleton.
