Legal Studies and Administration Stream - An Introduction to Canadian Law

CRJS 1206  An Introduction to Canadian Law


CRJS 2206 and JURI 2206


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course offers students a basic understanding of the workings of the Canadian Legal system through an examination of its origins, with emphasis on British common law traditions, our adversarial trial system and how it compares to the inquisitorial system employed in other western democracies. We examine particular areas of public substantive law, including criminal, constitutional, family and tort law. Students learn about the connection between law and politics, how law evolves along with changing public attitudes and how the law impacts their everyday lives.
