Faculty of Law


UNB Law students are drawn to our intimate learning environment where they develop the hard and soft skills to thrive as lawyers. That’s why we intentionally keep class sizes small. Students are challenged, they will struggle, and they will hear arguments they disagree with.

Our JD program is rigorous, but our environment is nurturing. In these small classes, our students are uplifted and inspired to achieve their full potential. They learn you can only thrive by behaving with integrity and treating others with respect. At UNB Law, as in the profession and as in life, you get ahead by working hard and being kind to others.

A timeless legal education

Known for our “career-ready” curriculum, we are focused on the timeless fundamentals, which prepare students for any area of practice. We’ve stuck to first principles, requiring students to take a broad selection of courses in both public and private law. We’ve emphasized the basics of common law and legislation, analytical skills, legal writing, oral advocacy — things that never go out of style.

With this approach, we’ve equipped our students with the diverse skillset and perspective to solve the toughest challenges. They are able to see the big picture, think creatively and find answers in places where others aren’t looking. Our graduates become great problem-solvers, and this ensures they emerge as leaders in their fields.
