Program Overview

Law and Society is an interdisciplinary program. It examines the theory, practice, and social consequences of law through a variety of research methods and modes of analysis. You will learn to think critically about the law, legal systems in Canada and abroad, and how the law intersects with pressing political, economic, environmental, and social issues. If you are seeking a dynamic and multidisciplinary approach to the study of law, this program is ideal for you.

When you study Law and Society at Acadia, you will have the opportunity to

  • Learn to identify and assess principles of law and justice
