Course descriptions

The UNB Law curriculum includes a greater number of compulsory courses than most other law schools, ensuring that graduates are prepared for practice in the principal  areas of law. In addition to the seven compulsory courses in the upper years, students must take one course from each of the compulsory areas, and one course in which the student writes a scholarly paper worth at least 50% of the final grade for the course.
Currently, our structured curriculum also exposes students to critical perspectives on law, helping them to view law as a social institution and scholarly enterprise. By offering a wide variety of elective, upper-year courses, we also give students the opportunity to specialize.

For a complete list of courses and their descriptions please see course descriptions (PDF).
